The last day of the Dynamic Billard European Championships Youth in St. Johann i.Pg., Austria, saw the final medals being taken.

Teams

In the team competition, Germany had a „Golden Day“. Both German teams made it to the finals in the Under 17’s and Under 19’s. Both teams were the underdogs. The Under 17’s had to face team Poland. In that match, Kamil Szasor took the 9-ball really quickly over Hermann Hoyh with 7:1. Patrick Hofmann fought the German’s back into the match, winning his 8-ball over Wiktor Zielinski with 6:5 after having trailed 4:5. The straight pool needed to decide the match. Kevin Schiller had a comfortable lead of 69:35 over Daniel Maciol who is known to be capable of running high runs. Macula got to the table and pocketed ball after ball. He made it to 66:69 when he scratched while pocketing a ball. With 6 balls needed, Schiller got to the table and won the match and the Gold Medal for Germany with 75:66.

The final in the Under 19’s between Team Germany and Team Russia took a similar course. Maksim Dudanets won his straight pool for the favored Russians clearly with 100:46 over Jannik Schmitt. At that time, Raphael Wahl was struggling against Sergey Lutsker and managed to win the 9-ball match with 8:7 over the Russian to tie the match at 1:1. Pascal Bruckmann needed to come up with the deciding point in his 8-ball match with Marsel Safiullin. Safiullin was already leading 6:5 when he missed a 2-ball and gave the table to Bruckmann. With an incredible and outstanding performance, Bruckmann cleared two racks and won the match and the Gold for his team with 7:6.

在青年組方面,Maksim Dudanets以100:46擊敗Jannik Schmitt取得14-1的勝利。Raphael Wahl 8:7驚險擊敗Sergey Lutsker拿下比賽,雙方戰成1:1平手。在最後一點8號球項目上,Marsel Safiullin取得6:5聽牌領先,但隨後在2號球上發生失誤,這也給了他的對手Pascal Bruckmann有機會回到場上。Bruckmann的表現的相當出色,連下2局以7:6逆轉獲勝拿下另一面金牌。

In the 9-ball individuals girls division, Kristina Tkach (RUS) met Diana Khodjaeva (BEL). Both players already had won a title earlier this week. So they really had to see who would be the most successful player in their division. Tkach got to the hill first but played an unbelievably negligent foul when she touched the cue ball. Khodjaeva got back to the table and ran the rack, making the match a hill-hill thriller at 5:5. Then, Tkach simply had the better nerves. Khodjaeva tried to play a safety with 3 balls remaining on the table but left an easy out for Tkach. The Russian said thank you and pocketed the last 3 balls to win the title with 6:5.

9號球女子組方面,俄羅斯的Kristina Tkach與比利時的Diana Khodjaeva再次會師決賽。兩人分別各拿下一面金牌,拿下勝利的人將成為他們的組別中最成功的球員。Tkach率先取得了5:4的聽牌優勢後,卻發生不可置信的犯規,這也讓Khodjaeva回到場上清光台面,並將比數追平5:5。最後一局在僅剩三顆球的情況下,Khodjaeva安全球留下了機會給TkachTkach打進最後三顆球,以6:5打敗對手,奪下冠軍。

In the 9-ball Under 17’s, it came to the all-Polish clash between Kamil Szasor and Daniel Maciol. Maciol had already won titles but Szasor was still trying to win his first one. Though he got very close to achieve that, Maciol had the better end on his side, winning the final match and the title with 7:6.

In the Under 19’s, Krystain Cwikla (POL) had to face Andreas Madsen (DEN). The match also was pretty even and went hill-hill. There, Cwikla missed the 5-ball and left a combination shot for Madsen who went for it. Probably a safety option would have been better here. Madsen left the 9-ball hanging over the corner pocket so that Cwikla had an easy combination shot to win the final and the title with 8:7.

最後在青年組方面,由波蘭的Krystain Cwikla對決來自丹麥的Andreas Madsen。雙方一路來到7:7平手搶尾局。Cwikla在打5號球時,太過在意6號球作球位置,導致5號球發生失誤沒有進袋,留下了5、9組合球給Madsen。就當時情況、球型而言,選擇安全球會是更好的,但Madsen決定擊打5、9組合球,但9號球沒進留在了洞口,反倒留給Cwikla一個簡單的5、9組合球,Cwikla輕鬆打進就以8:7奪下勝利。
