ANDERNOS - Two groups, one with Torbjörn Blomdahl, one with Eddy Merckx, continue the preliminaries in the Kozoom Challenge Cup in the Kozoom studio in Andernos this week. Following the qualifications for the 8-man final of Dick Jaspers, Marco Zanetti, Roland Forthomme and Michael Nilsson, it is now about the groups E and F of this competition. Those matches are played from Wednesday 18 to Friday 20 May. To be followed fully on Kozoom for Premium subscribers.

Group E will consist of Eddy Merckx (Belgium), Can Capak (Turkey) and Jérôme Barbeillon (France). The Turkish player shows up in one of his last international matches before transferring to Korean PBA. Group F is also very interesting with Torbjörn Blomdahl (Sweden), Peter Ceulemans (Belgium) and Pierre Soumagne (France). The two group winners over 18 sets of 10 points join the four already qualified players.

During the three days, four daily sessions will take place from 14.00 to 20.00, approximately every hour and 45 minutes, alternating between groups E and F. That means: at 14.00 and 17.30 for group E and at 15.45 and 19.15 for group F.

After the black Chevillotte tables for the Masters of the French three-course championship in Bois-Guillaume last weekend, you will have the pleasure of seeing these same purple-pink tables live from the Arcachon basin with the three players of each group at the table at the same time.

Commentary in English will be provided by two Americans, Merril Hughes and Mazin Shooni (US vice-champion in 2012) in the absence of Torbjörn Blomdahl.

These three days of Live will be followed on Saturday and Sunday by the French Team Championship at Biljartclub Andernos, also open to Kozoom subscribers.

The line-up for this group: Peter Ceulemans, Torbjörn Blomdahl and Pierre Soumagne
