Finally it was enough to win” said the winner. The 3rd place took ex aequo R. Chinakov from Russian Federation and A. Kasakis from Greece. Generally 56 billiard players took part in the tournament.

Tuesday, 20 December 2011 21:51

Let us take a look at the summary of this this year's series Dynamic Best of the East .

The season was very difficult for all organizers of sport competitions. The financial crisis has touched strongly billiard business. Lots of clubs cancelled a support for players. It was obvious during European events.

Dynamic Best of the East had less participants than in 2010. 185 sportsmen from 17 countries are on the overall ranking. It is a good result but there were years we had 300 participants. In 2011 we played in 5 countries: Poland (Katowice), Bulgaria (Sofia), Ukraine (Kiev), Estonia (Tallinn) and Hungary (Pecs). The winner of the general classification has been Radoslaw Babica. During 5 events he was the first twice and the third three times. Tomasz Kaplan (2011 EPBF European Champion ) has taken the second place. The surprise were W. Stofko (SK) and M. Mrva (SK) because they took high positions in the rang list (7 and 9 place).
