At the Dynamic Billard European Championships for men, women and wheelchair athletes in St. Johann i.Pg., Austria, Oliwia Czuprynska (POL) won her match against Eylul Kibaroglu (TUR) clearly with 7:1.
The 9-ball individuals continue today here in St. Johann. One interesting match was the encounter between Czuprynska and Kibaroglu. The Turkish can hardly be evaluated. She has had several strong performances, but also played some weaker matches. If she was in top condition, she could have been a real danger for Czuprynska. But today was not Kibaroglu’s day. She committed unnecessary fouls, ran out of position quite some times and missed easy shots. Consequently, after six racks, she was trailing 0:6 when she was finally able to open her account with one point in order to not receive a whitewash from Czuprynska. The Polish however seemed to be on fire. She either cleared the rack or came up with good safety shots. Her performance together with today’s condition that Kibaroglu found herself in totally justified the high result of 7:1 in favor of Czuprynska in that match. She will be up next against in the winner’s qualification round against Melanie Suessenguth (GER) who defeated Tamara Peeters-Rademakers (NED) 7:3. Kibaroglu will need to find her rhythm and play better again. Her next match on the loser’s side will be against Peeters-Rademakers.
Other remarkable results from today include Berk Mehmetcik (TNC) winning over Jani Siekkinen (FIN) with 9:5 in loser’s round 1 of the men’s competition. In the same round, Chris Papageorgiou managed to eliminate Henrique Correia (POR) with 9:7. Artem Koshovyi (UKR) just made it in the loser’s qualification round over Dino Cerimagic (BIH). He took the match with 9:8 and booked a seat in the single elimination round of the final 64 men. He will be joined there by Jim Chawki (SWE) who ousted teammate Christian Sparrenloev-Fischer (SWE) 9:4 from the men’s 9-ball chart. In the wheelchair division, Emil Malinowski (POL) won 7:4 over Matt Duffy (GBR). David Himpe (BEL) took his match with 7:4 against Eduard Karamatic (CRO).
