Another new Euro-Tour event is on the verge of being launched – the Dynamic Billard Klagenfurt Open in Klagenfurt, Austria, followed by a women’s Euro-Tour tournament. After the Atlantic Challenge Cup in summer this year, this is the second huge pool billiards event in the capital of Carinthia which holds around 100.000 inhabitants.

So far, 162 men and 43 women have announced to participate in these prestigious events. The two players that stick out from the full field are definitely Jasmin and Albin Ouschan. The siblings who reside in and originate from Klagenfurt are considered to be the anchor players for this event. Both are very famous in their home country Austria and Albin just recently conquered the title of „sportsperson of the year“ in Carinthia. Jasmin had already won that title 6-times in her career and finished 3rd in the Austrian election of the sports person of the year. The Ouschans are definitely the local celebrities that will draw the audience to come to the Klagenfurt sports stadium and support their local heroes.

Another remarkable player in both events, open and women’s, is Chen Siming from China. The athlete from the far east just won the Gold Medal at this year’s World Games in Wroclaw, Poland, and is definitely one of pool’s powerhouses in the World today. Her appearance in both events in Klagenfurt is surely one of the highlights of the tournaments and it will be very interesting to see how she will do in a tournament with the European top class players.

Of course, all European top performers are attending in Klagenfurt this week. Not only the prize money of 36.000,-€ in the open division and around 3.500,-€ in the women’s division are very attractive for the European pool elite. Also the coveted ranking points are valuable reasons for many players to come and join the field of top players in Klagenfurt.

The open event, the Dynamic Billard Klagenfurt Open, starts on Thursday morning at 09:00 CET with round one. The group stages last until Friday night at 21:00 CET when the event will turn into single elimination mode with the last 32 players remaining. The final of the event is scheduled for Saturday, October 7th, at 18:00 CET.

The Klagenfurt Women’s Open  will begin on Saturday, October 8th at 09:00 CET with the group stages. The final for that event is scheduled for Sunday, October 8th at 15:00 CET.
