The defending Champion in senior’s straight pool, Reiner Wirsbitzki (GER), won the straight pool division at the Dynamic Billard European Championships for Seniors with a 100:54 victory over Vegar Kristiansen (NOR).
The final match was packed with action. The early stage saw both players playing at an equal level. After 30 minutes, the score was 36:35 for Kristiansen. But then Wirsbitzki shifted into overdrive. He was about to run the match at with a very convincing and amazing performance. But when he played his last ball, he scratched with the cue ball, giving another chance to Kristiansen. The Norwegian could not believe what he just saw but he tried to do the best he could in order to get back into the match, trailing 36:98. He ran 18 balls but after that, he left enough balls on the table for Wirsbitzki to make the necessary two points and defend his title.
