Spain’s Francisco Sanchez-Ruiz wins his first ever Eurotour stop beatingGreece’s Alex Kazakis in a thriller here in Lasko Slovenia. In a matchthat had it all, we were treated to everything, jumps, scratches, kicksand a lot of emotion as these two players put on one hell of aperformance in front of an excited crowd. With so much happening, thelast rack simply sums this match up.With the score tied at 8-8, Alex has the crucial break but it’s illegal,handing the initiative to Francisco who then leaves the 1-ball hangingin the pocket. Alex makes that ball but hooks himself on the 3-ball andplays a good kick-shot to leave Francisco with a difficult jump.Francisco elevates the cue ball with such accuracy it pots the 3 intothe side but the cue ball travels to the opposite centre pocket andclips the knuckle only just staying on the table, to the delight of theSpaniards watching who gave a loud cheer. Francisco was shaking and Alexwas holding his head as Francisco just about held his nerve to run theremaining balls and clinch his first ever Eurotour title.
