Ten fingers for the champion Alain Remond

Alain Remond raised his ten fingers for his tenth French title

EVIAN-LES-BAINS - He first lifted the cue after his last carom and then his ten fingers: Alain Remond took in Evian-les-Bains his tenth French title in his favourite discipline one cushion. In the final, the ten times master defeated a surprising opponent: Pascal Dessaint 120-64 in 11 innings. The two finalists had a difficult start (30-26 in six innings), then Remond ran out with a 47, Dessaint responded with 30 and came back until 21 points, but with a 34 run Remond made the final gap.

That means the return of Remond on the highest podium after his victory in Soissons 2012. Bernard Villiers was the champion in 2013 and 2014. He was the number three on the podium now. Alain Remond also shone with the best average in the championship: 9.524.

The last four in the semi-finals are the most succesful players this season with Pascal Dessaint, Jacky Justice, Alain Remond and Bernard Villiers as winners of the tournaments. Nicolas Gérassimopoulos, fourth at the French ranking and vice European champion, was eliminated in the first phase by Jean-François Florent.

Pascal Dessaint recorded 8.01 on average, Bernard Villiers 8.96 and Jacky Justice 8.17. Johan Petit was fifth (6.17), followed by Jean-François Florent (5.41), Willy Gérimont (8.41) and David Jacquet (6.57).

The two finalists, Alain Remond and Pascal Dessaint.
