With a magnificent performance so far, Mieszko Fortunski (POL) ousted Mats Schjetne (NOR) 8:2 from the 10-ball discipline at the Dynamic Billard European Championships in Hotel Alpina, Alpendorf, St. Johann i.Pg., Austria.

Big names have fallen today in the men’s division. Favorite players like #1 seeded player Francisco Sanchez-Ruiz are among the victims just like Nick van den Berg (NED), Niels Feijen (NED), Albin Ouschan (AUT), Marcus Chamat (SWE), Mario He (AUT), Mateusz Sniegocki (POL) … just to name a few. But Fortunski is one of the last four men standing in the men’s 10-ball. He defeated Mats Schjetne in the quarter-final match with 8:2, leaving not many chances for Schjetne to take. Fortunski seems to be on fire since his last Euro-Tour victory in March in Treviso and he is definitely counted in as favorite for the title now. In the semi-final which will be played tomorrow evening at 18:00 CET, Fortunski will meet Petri Makkonen (FIN) who smashed Mario He (AUT) 8:2 in his quarter-final match tonight. The other semi-final will be played between David Alcaide (ESP) and underdog Miguel Silva (POR).

In the women’s division, Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) obviously recovered from her defeat against Christine Feldmann in the round before. She won her quarter-final with 6:4 over strong playing Tina Vogelmann (GER). Her opponent in the semi-final tomorrow is Oliwia Czuprynska (POL) who eliminated Kristina Tkach (RUS) with 6:1 today. The second semi-final will be played between Marika Poikkijoki (FIN) and Line Kjoersvik (NOR).

In the wheelchair division, the tournament is also down to the semi-final matches. Kurt Deklerck (BEL) surprisingly taught a lesson to Henrik Larsson (SWE) with 6:1. Daniel Lee (GBR) will be Deklerck’s opponent in the semis since he ousted Roy Kimberley 6:2 today. Defending Champion Jouni Tahti (FIN) overcame Fred Dinsmore (IRL) 6:2 and David Himpe (BEL) won 6:5 over Matej Brajkovic (SLO).
