At this year’s Dynamic Billard European Championship for Men, Women and Wheelchair athletes, defending Champion in the men’s division Nick van den Berg (NED) had smooth sailing so far and is through to the single elimination round of the final 32 players. He smashed Chris Papageorgiou (GRE) 100:8 to enter the single elimination stage of the final 64 players. There, he defeated Anthony Brabin (CYP) 125:43. His victory was never endangered and he is playing quite well so far.
More interesting matches in the men’s division from today include van den Berg’s teammate and multiple straight pool champion Niels Feijen (NED) winning his match 100:18 over Dzmitry Chuprov (BLR). He will now face Goerg Hoeberl (AUT) in his next match which will be played at 09:00 CET tomorrow morning. Andreas Roschkowsky (GER), one of the favorites for the title, won his match in the single elimination stage over Ruslan Chinakhov (RUS) with 125:47. Hometown hero Albin Ouschan (AUT) has also entered the next round. He defeated Christian Graser (LUX) clearly with 125:12. Marco Teutscher (NED) came up with an upset in the same round, defeating „Napoleon“ Marcus Chamat (SWE) 125:66. Teutscher was up during the whole match. At some stage he was even leading 105:40 over Chamat. But when he needed three more points, he missed. That brought Chamat back to the table. He tried to reach out for a comeback but he missed a combination shot when he had 66 points in his account, leaving enough balls for Teutscher on the table to finish the match. In another „clash of the generations“, youngster Daniel Tangudd (SWE) remained the upper hand over experienced Stephan Cohen (FRA), winning the match 125:89. He almost made it earlier, but when leading 123:89, Tangudd missed an easy shot and allowed Cohen back to the table. But the French could not capitalize from Tangudd’s mistake and made no ball. Tangudd pocketed two more balls and won the match 125:89.
2016歐錦賽結束了首日賽程。14-1衛冕冠軍荷蘭名將 Nick van den Berg 在勝部先以100:8擊敗希臘的Chris Papageorgiou 進入到單敗64強，隨後再以125:43淘汰賽普勒斯的Anthony Brabin 晉級32強。目前為止還沒有任何人能威脅他的晉級之路!
其他男子組比賽方面，van den Berg的多屆14-1冠軍 Niels Feijen 100:18擊退白俄羅斯的Dzmitry Chuprov。他下一場將於今天當地時間早上9點對上奧地利的Goerg Hoeberl。Andreas Roschkowsky在單敗階段以125:47終結了俄羅斯的 Ruslan Chinakhov。地主名將 Albin Ouschan 以125:12輕鬆擊敗來自盧森堡的Christian Graser挺進下一輪。在瑞典名將Marcus Chamat與荷蘭選手Marco Teutscher的比賽中，Teutscher整場比賽都處在領先狀態，在距離勝利僅剩3顆球下出現失誤，這也給了Chamat機會。Chamat在追到比數來到66:105時，在一計組合球上出現失誤，這也讓他最終仍以66:125暴冷輸球。在另一場比賽中，瑞典年輕小將Daniel Tangudd面對到了法國老將Stephan Cohen，Tangudd絲毫沒有半點畏懼，但在比分來到123:89下，出現了一個失誤，這也給Cohen得到機會回到球桌上，但他沒能利用到此機會，Tangudd最終就已125:89取得勝利。
In the women’s division, the tournament is played down to the loser’s qualification round. Defending Champion, local hero and all-time favored Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) made her way into the round of the last 16 players single elimination with two straight victories over Marika Poikkijoki (FIN) 75:26 and then Jennifer Vietz (GER) 75:40. While the first match was a clear affair for Ouschan, she had to struggle a bit more against Vietz. In fact, the German was already leading 34:16 when Ouschan managed to strike back and overtake Vietz 50:34. That was the beginning of the end of Vietz in that match.
Other remarkable results in the women’s division include Oliwia Czuprynska (POL) winning her match to go to the single elimination stage over Micha Beuriot (NED) with 75:41. Czuprynska’s teammate Katarzyna Wesolowska (POL) joins her there. She won 75:18 over Tina Vogelmann (GER) and send her to the loser’s side.

女子組方面，衛冕冠軍 Jasmin Ouschan 分別以75:26、75:40擊敗芬蘭的Marika Poikkijoki與德國的Jennifer Vietz挺進16強。相較於第一場比賽輕取對手，Ouschan在第二場對上Vietz的比賽中，顯然來得費力些。德國的Vietz原取得34:16的領先，隨後Ouschan成功的反擊，最終逆轉擊敗拿下比賽。其他比賽方面，波蘭的 Oliwia Czuprynska 75:41淘汰了荷蘭選手Micha Beuriot。而她的隊友Katarzyna Wesolowska 也以75:18取得勝利，將她的對手，來自德國的Tina Vogelmann送進敗部。
