European Championships 2012

22 Mar

It is time once again for the biggest event in Europe, the European Championships, this year in Luxembourg. In 10 days 128 men and 64 women are competing for the titles in 4 disciplines (Straight Pool, 8-Ball, 10-Ball, 9-Ball). This year we will also have a team competition at the end.

“It is truly one of my hardest events in the season because I have to compete in 4 disciplines within 10 days. My trainer and I just came back from Taipei/Taiwan so the jetlag is also an issue here. But I feel good and I am ready.”

Here you can find the official website! (Tournament/draws and results/ and then choose on the right side the discipline, i.e. women straight pool)

“Straight pool started well for me. I played well and had a few highscores. But the semi final went differently. Mazhirina played good and she certainly made use of my mistakes. I just could not play my game. So in straight pool it is only the 3rd place for me this year. New day, new discipline, new chance. Congrats to Line Kjorsvik from Norway for the straight pool title!”
