MATCHROOM POOL LAUNCHES UK OPEN WITH BIGGEST PRIZE FUND AND FIELD IN BRITISH POOL

Matchroom Pool is delighted to announce the launch of The UK Open, a new open tournament and the latest addition to the Matchroom Pool Series set to take place for the first time in May 2022 London, with a total prize fund of $200,000.

The UK Open will feature alongside the most illustrious tournaments in 9-ball pool including The World Pool Championship, US Open Pool Championship, Mosconi Cup, World Pool Masters, World Cup of Pool, and Championship League Pool which all form a key part of the Matchroom Pool World Rankings and the race to be a part of the Mosconi Cup teams for European and American players. The tournament marks a key milestone in Matchroom Multi Sport's commitment to Pool and will see 256 players compete from May 17 to May 22 at the Copper Box Arena, London with a buy-in of only $250, live on Sky Sports in the UK, and DAZN in the USA, Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, and Italy.

Matchroom Multi Sport Managing Director Emily Frazer underlined her vision for the tournament: "We've been talking a lot about expanding the Matchroom Pool Series and it's now we stop talking and actually turn it into actions. We've acquired the US Open and the World Championship and now we're going to launch a new event. It's the biggest prize fund in British pool and the biggest field size, it's just so exciting.

Day 2 of US Open Pool Championship sees players hopes and dreams decided

Reporter: Matt Lynch - Media & Brand Manager - Multi Sport
Photography: Erwin Dionisio/Matchroom Multi Sport


Day two of the US Open Pool Championship at Harrah's Resort, Atlantic City in partnership with Caesars Entertainment and the Atlantic City Sports Commission saw the top seeds rumble on through into the next stage of the winners' rounds whilst many hopes and dreams were dashed as the first round of the losers’ bracket were concluded.

Track Scores Here

Naoyuki Oi began the day as the focus on table one against Kuwait's Mohammad Almuhanna and he made the most of it sealing a 9-3 win and a space in winners' round two where he will take on Roland Garcia as matches turn to a Race to 11.

Jayson Shaw followed up with a display worthy of being the 2020 Mosconi Cup MVP as he bypassed Daniel Dagotdot of the Philippines in a donut to set up a tricky clash against Hsieh Chia Chen on the same side of the draw as Oi.

Judd Trump's first foray into 9-ball pool cruised on after some early nerves against India's Dhruvalkumar Patel. The Ace in the Pack was 3-2 up but pulled away at that point onwards to seal a 9-2 win. His experience on the green baize of snooker proving to come in at the ideal time with a cruel snooker on the two in the 10th rack.

Kelly Fisher set up a tantalizing match against Niels Feijen after overcoming Kristina Tkach with KwikFire beating the Russian for the second time in a matter of days after beating her in the WPBA Sondheim Kiwanis Invitational final on Sunday. Tkach kept her chances going in a nail-biting 9-8 win over Vincent Cimarelli.

A packed arena also witnessed Earl Strickland put on a show as he beat Christopher Pyle in a whitewash. The highlight from the Pearl coming in the fourth rack with a golden break. Fellow Americans Skyler Woodward and Shane Van Boening had varying degrees of ease to beat their respective opponents, but both moved into winners round three. Woodward will face Mario He next and SVB will face World Under-17 champion Moritz Neuhausen of Germany tomorrow.

Judd Trump vs Joe Magee

2021 US OPEN POOL CHAMPIONSHIP | TOP SEEDS COME THROUGH EARLY TESTS

The 2021 US Open Pool Championship got underway in style at Harrah’s Resort, Atlantic City with reigning champion Joshua Filler out to join a select few who have defended their crown in what is known as the toughest tournament in 9-ball pool.

Track Scores Here

In Matchroom Pool’s first visit stateside since the 2019 Mosconi Cup, Filler got his campaign off to the best possible start getting the better of American Joseph Blyler 9-2 in quick time with Blyler struggling after taking the opening rack.

Filler has been on a good streak in Matchroom Pool Series events and recently claimed the World Cup of Pool title alongside partner Christoph Reintjes. He underlined his intentions perhaps best in the fifth rack with a two-rail kick on the five to help clean up to lead 4-1. At times, all Blyler could do was applaud the Matchroom Pool World No.2’s shotmaking.

If Filler’s showing wasn’t enough, the new World Champion Albin Ouschan set out early warning signals with a 9-0 dismantling of Scott Haas whilst his 2020 Mosconi Cup teammate Jayson Shaw made light work of Esteban Robles live on Matchroom Pool’s YouTube 9-3.

2019 Mosconi Cup MVP Skyler Woodward was also live on our YouTube where fans witnessed him beat Rick Miller 9-2. It was a similar story for World Pool Championship runner-up Omar Al-Shaheen who beat James Prather 9-2 and World 10-ball runner-up Naoyuki Oi who moved to the winners’ bracket seeing off David Daya 9-4.

Judd Trump made his long-awaited 9-ball pool debut at the start of the evening session and the World Snooker 22-time ranking title winner didn’t hang around against Joe Magee in a whitewash win. The Ace in the Pack allayed any early nerves with a solid opening break before going on to break and run in several racks. With Magee watching on from his chair, Trump made his ascent to the hill with a fantastic cut on the eight, which saw him take the cue ball around the table to be in position and make a dream start.

The recently announced Team USA Mosconi Cup Vice-Captain and five-time US Open champion Shane Van Boening laid down his gauntlet with a 9-2 win over Francesco Candela in front of a packed crowd on the main table at Harrah’s Resort, Atlantic City. Van Boening won four of his five titles in the last decade and will face Sharik Sayed of Singapore next as the quest for number six rolls on.

Five-time winner Earl Strickland started against Adam Martin in a convincing 9-1 victory whilst Billy Thorpe needed the last rack to beat Raymond Linares and Tyler Styer suffered at the hands of Hussain Al Sayyafi but recovered to beat James Conn in the first losers round.

Recently crowned World 10-ball winner Eklent Kaçi faced Jesus Atencio in a tricky encounter which he overcame 9-7 to go into the winners’ bracket.

Kaci Lights Up World 10-Ball Championship

Reporter: Keith Paradise - CSI Staff Writer
Photography: Erwin Dionisio


The only thing that could stop Albania’s Eklent Kaci on the final day of the World 10-Ball Championships was to turn off the lights.

Playing in the second semifinal match of the day, Kaci had built an early 3-1 advantage against Singapore’s Aloysius Yapp when a thunderstorm knocked out power to the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino for a little over two hours. When play resumed, the 22-year-old Albanian gutted out a 10-8 victory against Yapp to earn a trip to the finals, then pulled away from Japan’s Naoyuki Oi late in the championship match to earn a 10-6 victory and win the second-annual Predator 10-Ball Championship. Kaci, who has won a handful of EuroTour events and was a runner-up at the 2017 U.S. Open 9-Ball Championship, used a combination of tight safety play and dazzling shot-making to earn the biggest prize of his career.

Playing in the weather-delayed championship match, Kaci used two breaks and runs along with a dry break from Oi to build an early 4-1 advantage. Oi returned fire, just as he had done so many times throughout the tournament, taking advantage of a Kaci missed shot and dry break to tie the score 4-4, only to suffer a dry break of his own in the very next game. Kaci cleared the table to regain the lead and tacked on another rack to build a 6-4 advantage.

Wu Sails Through to Claim Diamond Las Vegas Open

Reporter: Keith Paradise - CSI Staff Writer
Photography:
Wu and Trophy alone: Predator Group
Wu, Al Shaheen and sponsors: Erwin Dioni


For the last half decade, Wu Kun-Lin has been hanging around the top of the leaderboard at professional pool events.

He placed third at the 2017 World 9-Ball Championship and followed that performance by finishing fifth at the same event a year later. He has a handful of top-five finishes in the Japan Open and, five years ago, Wu finished in third at the China Open. Despite the top finishes, the 25-year-old from Taiwan hasn’t been able to break through and secure a victory.

That is, at least, until this weekend.

Using a smooth break and some pinpoint safety play, Wu cruised to the championship in the third annual Diamond Las Vegas Open, defeating Omar Al Shaheen in straight sets, 4-3 and 4-1, in Saturday night’s finals at the Rio All-Suites hotel and casino. Wu, who posted an undefeated record during the four-day, 128-player event, managed to survive early charges not only from Al Shaheen in the finals, but also Estonia’s Denis Grabe in the semifinals to earn the trophy and the $15,000 check.

Wu jumped out to an early 3-0 advantage in race-to-four, two set finals thanks to two victorious safety exchanges and a break-and-run. Al Shaheen, who earned runner-up honors at this year’s World Pool Championship, climbed onto the scoreboard in the fourth game when he executed a table-length kick in of the 6 ball and ran out the rack. The young upstart from Kuwait then used a powerful break shot to break-and-run back-to-back racks and tie the score. Faced with a tricky 4 and 10 ball combination shot in the decisive game, Al Shaheen attempted to pocket the object ball but instead left a makeable 4 ball along the long rail, which his opponent pocketed and cleared the table to secure the set, 4-3.

Al Shaheen was plagued with mistakes throughout the second set, committing fouls in the first and second games as Wu again secured an early 2-0 lead. Al Shaheen was able to narrow the deficit in the next game when Wu overran position on the 6 ball and committed a foul of his own, but forfeited the table in the next rack when Al Shaheen committed another unforced error. After winning a safety exchange on the 2 ball in the fifth rack, it appeared the Kuwaiti was about to cut his deficit to 3-2 but left a routine 8 ball in the corner pocket’s jaws. Wu cleared the table, then tacked on another rack to seal the match and the championship.

Diamond Las Vegas Open Down to Final 32 Players

Reporter: Keith Paradise - CSI Staff Writer
Photography: Predator Group


Things weren’t looking so good early on in Shane Van Boening’s Friday night match against Chris Reinhold.

The five-time United States Open 9-Ball champion had just completed an error-infested first set, as Reinhold turned a missed 9 ball and a scratch by his opponent into a 4-0 whitewashing. Needing to win the second frame in order to force a match-deciding shootout, the South Dakotan caught a break in the first rack when his opponent misplayed a safety on the 2 ball. Van Boening made the most of his opportunity, winning four of the next five racks then surviving the sudden death frame to remain undefeated in this weekend’s Diamond Las Vegas Open at the Rio All-Suites Hotel.

After clearing the table in the second set’s opening rack, Van Boening used a victorious safety exchange in the next rack and a misplayed 6 ball by Reinhold in the third game to increase his lead to 3-0. Reinhold, who competed with Van Boening on the United States Mosconi Cup team last year, stole a game back on a safety battle of his own and appeared positioned to cut into the deficit more in the fifth game, but scratched when he drew the cue ball into the corner pocket while trying to secure position on the 3 ball.

Van Boening was perfect in the shootout, pocketing four consecutive balls while Reinhold landed three out of four of the sudden death spot shots.

The South Dakotan is one of 16 competitors who remain undefeated in the four-day, 128-player event – which was reduced to 32 players by the end of competition last night. The format now switches from double-elimination to a single-elimination knockout phase, with brackets redrawn as the 16 contestants from the winner’s side are matched with the 16 remaining players on the one-loss side. The competition resumes today at noon local time with the champion crowned later this evening.

Luke Garland and Spencer Oliver

Luke Garland eases to 7-1 victory at Solihull 9 Ball tournament!

Report by: Matt Hawthorn

Saturday 28th August saw Rileys Solihull play host to the second installment of the GO Customs 9 Ball Series. The race-to-seven, double elimination format saw 32 cueists looking to claim the ÂŁ400 first prize. The draw was completed earlier in the week, meaning that by 10:45 we were underway.

Luke Garland, Cregg Bear, Chris Parker, Ryan Coton, Kev Simpson, Adam Lewis, Adam Clarke and Gary Bullocke all progressed to the last sixteen undefeated. This left eight spaces up for grabs as those left in the losers qualifying round looked to keep their hopes of tournament success alive. Benji Buckley overcame a 2-0 deficit to eliminate newcomer Dwayne Yates (7-4), while Andy Lacey got the better of Dane Jones (7-5). Shaun Johnson couldn't stop Stewart Colclough, going down 7-3, but Spencer Oliver took down Luke Hart (7-5). The battle of the Hungarians saw Laszlo Zsom defeat Zoltan Kojsza (7-4) and there were contrasting fortunes for the Weavers, as Kurt beat Andy Carter (7-2) but Steve fell at the expense of David Hine (7-1). Daryl Garland completed the final sixteen lineup via a bye.

Now it was a straight knockout and, with the favourites not quite hitting top gear to this point, this really was anyone's event to win. Luke Garland eventually put distance between himself and Stewart Colclough as he advanced (7-4). Kev Simpson managed to halt Laszlo Zsom's fantastic comeback to sneak through (7-5) while Chris Parker won the final two racks to pip Daryl Garland (7-6). Kurt Weaver advanced past Ryan Coton (7-2) while Andy Lacey ended Adam Clarke's event, conceding just one rack in the process. Cregg Bear overcame David Hine to progress (7-3) and Spencer Oliver scored an impressive win over Gary Bullocke (7-4). Adam Lewis would complete the last eight by eliminating Benji Buckley (7-4).

JUDD TRUMP TO COMPETE AT US OPEN POOL CHAMPIONSHIP

Trump will look to be a trendsetter and become the first snooker star of the modern era to turn to 9-ball and goes in on the back of winning five titles on the 2020/21 World Snooker Tour including the World Grand Prix. He will not be the first Snooker player to cross disciplines with Ronnie O'Sullivan having represented Europe at the Mosconi Cup in the early 90s and the likes of Jimmy White, Alex Higgins, and Steve Davis all taking on the challenge.

The Ace in the Pack is heading in at the peak of his powers: "I think the US Open Pool Championship has got the most heritage and prestige to it, it's been around a long time. Everyone in the world of pool knows it's the tournament if you are going to win one, it's this one. For me, that's what kind of attracted me, to go in at the deep end, going in at the biggest event and see what I can do."

"I think when I get over there and step out, I don't want to make a fool of myself, that will add pressure. But in the snooker world, I know what I am capable of and I know when I put the work in I've got that belief whereas, in pool, I do not know what's going to happen. Hopefully, I can have a good run in it."

Dynamic Billard Lasko Open 2021

Abled meets disabled, young meets old, the Eurotour has always thrown up some interesting scenarios since its inception in 1992 and the Dynamic Billard Lasko open was no different. Slovenia’s David Slacek has played the last two wheelchair European championships and introduced the EPBF to this lovely location. It was therefore heart-warming that he displayed such courage to take on the abled bodied and he did not let the Locals down beating Bulgaria’s top women player Kristina Zlateva 9-4 in today’s early round. Unfortunately, Davids run came to an end when he lost his next two matches to Greece’s Nik Ekonopolous 9-1 and Russia’s Aleksander Chernyshov 9-5.

Then came the young, Maks Benko, the 11 year old Slovenian was full of emotion as he took down veteran Dutchman Peter Knuever in a thrilling 9-8 match watched by his coach Mitja Gradisnik. Mitja was instrumental in bringing the European Youth championships to Slovenia last week to give his young players experience and boy did that work as Maks enjoyed his first ever Eurotour match, and a victory to go with it. After losing his second match against Austria’s Patrick Kiesel 9-3, Maks faced Sweden’s Kai Kraft but the day seemed to get the better of him losing 9-6. 12 hours of pool is a tough day for the pro’s, let alone a 11 year old but we’ll be seeing more from this young talent in the future.
