The final tournament of the 2014 edition of the Dynamic Billard Euro-Tour series will begin on Thursday morning, December 11th, at 09:00 CET. 144 men will play the Dynamic Treviso Open for a total prize fund of 34.000,-€ and important ranking points.

The situation in the Euro-Tour rankings for men players is quite close and exciting at the moment. The current leader is Nick van den Berg (NED) with 2510 points. He needs to finish better than 9th place in this event and no one will be able to seize the crown for 2014 from him. In case he loses out earlier, Mark Gray (GBR) on rank Nr. 2 is also in the starting gates. Trailing only with 140 points, Gray could be a serious competitor for van den Berg for the title of the Tour Winner 2014.

Karol Skowerski (POL) on 3rd and Ralf Souquet on 4th position only have outsider chances on the title since they both lose a high amount of points from last year’s event in Cison di Valmarino, Italy. However, Nr. 10 ranked player Nikos Ekonomopoulos (GRE) could come up with a huge upset here. He has not played the event last year and will gain the full amount of points. In case he gets a top 5 finish and the first 4 players lose out in the early rounds, Ekonomopoulos could be the winner. Many factors are out in the dark before this event. This adds even more spice and attractiveness to this closing event of the 2014 season in the BHR Treviso Hotel.

Starting on Saturday, the women will also play their final Euro-Tour tournament of the year. In the overall women’s ranking, Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) is most likely too far ahead of all her opponents. The second ranked player Kristina Schagan (GER) even trails with 460 points to Ouschan. Another winner of this season can hardly be imagined in the women’s division.

The men’s event starts on Thursday morning at 09:00 CET. Up to eight tables will be in the live stream and can be viewed at www.kozoom.com. All results and info about the event can be found at www.eurotouronline.com 

 

The event is hosted by the European Governing Body for Pool, the European Pocket Billiard Federation (EPBF) and organized by International Billiard Promotion (IBP). For further information please contact the EPBF press at press@epbf.com.
