Jérémy Bury: title in France after brilliant final

Jérémy Bury concquered the French title in a brilliant final match

EVIAN-LES-BAINS - Jérémy Bury is back on the highest podium in France. In a whirlwind finale, the French number one defeated his opponent Jean Reverchon 40-7 in fourteen innings, recording 2.857 average. The French Masters championships in all disciplines are played in the Palais des festivités in Evian-les-Bains from 13 to 21 June and broadcast live by the French billard federation.

Jérémy Bury took over the title from Jean-Christophe Roux after a difficult start and a brilliant final, which is undoubtedly the best ever played at a French championship. The one-man show from Bury in the final match started after five innings when he led 7-0. Then the Saint Maur player exploded and ran to the finish with 6-10-0-3-0-0-5-8-1.

However, the run-up was not so easy for Bury: after a first convincing victory against Eric Brousses (1.904), Bury lost against the strong Marc Boingnères (36-40 in 25 innings), which forced Bury to win his third match against the dangerous Cédric Melnytschenko: he succeeded in the final sprint: 40-37 in 32.

In the quarterfinals Bury was then facing the defending champion Jean-Christophe Roux (40-33 in 28) and in the semi-finals Jérôme Barbeillon was his opponent. The Andernos player just had finished a match with 2.000 average against Eric Tromas with a run of 15 (the best of the tournament). The start against Bury was promising: Barbeillon led 14-10 after four innings, followed by a bad phase: in the next seven innings only one carom. Bury took a 24-15 lead in eleven and closed the match 40-22 in 20 innings.

Jérémy Bury recorded 1.685 thanks to his last three performances. It was his third best average in a French championship after Schiltigheim in 2011, 1.786 and Saint-Maur in 2013, 1.748 average.

Jean Reverchon played his sixth final in a Masters three cushion. He aimed for his second title, but could not stop Bury's avalanche of caroms in the final. Reverchon started the Masters with a loss against Louis Edelin and then defeated Thierry Roxo and Bernard Baudoin. In the quarterfinals, he beat Louis Edelin 1.818, in the semi-finals he bested Marc Boigneres 40-29 in 33. Reverchon's overall average was 1.112.

The bronze medal belonged to two Andernos players: Jérôme Barbeillon (1.405) and Marc Boingnères (1.128), the only player who beat the later champion.
Jean-Christophe Roux finished fifth with 1.215, Louis Edelin sixth with 1.209, Pierre Soumagne seventh with 0.950 and Eric Tromas eighth with 0.832.

The average of the sixteen participants was 1.070.
