Two players from Serbia – Sandor Tot and Zoran Svilar played in the final of Dynamic Best of the East – Bulgaria 10-Ball which took place on July, 26 – 27. The result was not surprising. Tot won 7:4. While the best players from Poland and Bulgaria were absent (they were taking part in Team World Champpionships in China) only Romanians could compete with Serbs. The best of them – Ioan Ladany in the semifinal was leading 3:0 with Tot, but eventually lost 4:7. Similar situation took place in the second semifinal where Radoslav Milkov from Bulgaria, after a good start, was finally defeated by Svilar. In a final we could watch a friendly match between two good colleagues. Svilar started well but Tot got the better than him very soon and won the match 7:4. 70 players from 10 countries (Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Armenia, Serbia, Macedonia, Cyprus, Belarus, Georgia and Slovakia) played in Bulgaria 10-Ball.
