Dominic Jentsch Takes His Chance at Swiss Open
Germany’s 18-year-old young gun Dominic Jentsch has won the Swiss 10-Ball Open, which took place in Gstaad this past weekend. The three-day event drew some of the best European players to the wonderful Swiss city to fight for the prize money of 27,000.00 Euros.
At the end it was German straight pool champ Jentsch who took his chance and benefited from the elimination of both top favorites Ralf Souquet (Germany) and Niels Feijen (Netherlands) earlier in the tournament.
In the final, which was dominated by Jentsch, the last Swiss hope Ronald Regli, who earlier sent Feijen back home, had no real chance: 9-3 was the final result.
The approximately 150 spectators saw two very close semifinals before. Marco Tschudi (Switzerland) was ahead 7-3 over fellow countryman Regli, who had a great comeback and finally won 9-7. The other semi with Jentsch and World Team champ Imran Majid (United Kingdom) was decided at hill-hill. Majid was on his way to the final as he made a horrible mistake that cost him his place in the end game.
