The winners of the Portuguese Dynamic Billard Open are Nick van den Berg (NED) and Jasmin Ouschan (AUT).
歐巡賽-葡萄牙公開賽於Albufeira的Salgados Palace Hotel落下帷幕，荷蘭名將Nick van den Berg和奧地利名將Jasmin Ouschan分別摘得男女組別桂冠。
Nick van den Berg had a huge mountain to climb today. He had really big obstacles in the way on his quest for the glory. Before he met David Alcaide (ESP) in the final match, he had to overcome Vitaly Patsura (UKR) in a heartbreaker with 9:8, then Tomasz Kaplan (POL) 9:6 and in the semi-final match Mark Gray (GBR) with 9:3. Van den Berg played extremely well and solid and this also continued in the final match. Alcaide could not get into the match and missed a few easy shots in the early stage of the match. That brought van den Berg in advance. Alcaide had started a few attempts for a comeback and it looked like he would be able to make the match closer again. However, whenever Alcaide got closer, he was unlucky or fell out of position or the cue ball scratched. The match just went along in van den Berg’s favour who used his chance and very deservedly took the match with 9:5 in the final match to win his 10th Euro-Tour title.
男子組比賽中，Nick van den Berg 憑藉穩健的發揮，歷經艱難入圍決賽 9-8險勝去年歐錦賽大黑馬、烏克蘭小將Vitaly Patsura，9-6力挫波蘭好手Tomasz Kaplan，9-3擊敗英國名將Mark Gray。決賽中他面對的是剛剛斬獲大師賽桂冠的西班牙名將David Alcaide。比賽中，van den Berg依舊表現得非常強勢，這也使得Alcaide一直無法進入到良好的比賽狀態中。最終，van den Berg便9-5贏得勝利，這場勝利也讓他拿到了第10座歐巡賽冠軍獎盃。
