Poles triumphed second stage of Olympic-Online Baltic Pool League
The last weekend was held the second stage of Olympic-Online Baltic Pool League 2013 and the game was 10-ball. The location was the beautiful town of Ketrzyn in Poland. Poles were really in fire in men’s and women’s division by winning 6 out of 8 medals and among them both brigthest medals. In mens division was victorious Piotr Kudlik and womens division Katarzyna Wesolowska. Another significant fact was the number of participants on this event, namely record high 138 players.
Poles take all four medals in men’s division
Although it was expected that Poles triumph the mens division it was still anticipated that maybe Denis Grabe and Henrikas Strolis (Team Olympic-Online) are able to do something about it. However it was only an anticipation as Strolis lost already in the last 64 and Grabe lost in last sixteen to the polish twelwe years old wonderkind Wiktor Zielinski 6:3. It was Zielinski that finished third only by losing to the latter finalist Mariusz Skoneczny in the semi final 6:4. In the second semi final it was again all about Poland when Piotr Kudlik and Piotr Ostrowski battled it out for the place in the final. The two Piotr battle went for Kudlik with a score of 6:3. After the confident semi final Kudlik did not changed his matters and won the final over Skoneczny 6:2.
Women’s division was dominated by Wesolowska
The womens division was controlled for the whole event by Katarzyna Wesolowska. In the semifinal she won over Latvian athlete Ana Prizjazniuka 5:2 and in the final she crashed Margarita Fefilova from Belarus 5:0. The second bronze medal went to polish player Eva Bank.
