Predator 69th World 14.1 Championship

September 10th, 2009

It took the likes of a player such as Mika Immonen to take out former World 14.1 Champ Thorsten Hohmann. Immonen controlled the match till the end, despite a late rally from the German. Oliver Ortmann easily dispatched USA’s Earl Herring and Scotland’s Jonni Fulcher to advance to the semi-finals of the Predator 69th World 14.1 Championship.

The Dragon Promotions revived event is in its 4th consecutive year alive with help of industry giants such as Predator, Ozone Billiards, Brunswick Billiards, Simonis Cloth, Master Chalk, Aramith Balls, Accu-Stats and the Laser Rack. Comet Billiards will host this year’s event which will start play on August 24, 2009 and end August 29.

Ortmann continues his reign of terror in NJ, again with another 100 ball run, today 124. This is his fourth consecutive 100+ ball run for the event. But he will face his toughest challenge yet, the formidable Mika Immonen. Immonen, a former European 14.1 Champ, has been on a hot streak including a recent 2nd place at The Mezz Classic 14.1 which included a win over Hohmann in Orlando a few weeks ago. This win may have given him additional psychological edge as he handed Hohmann a second consecutive defeat by his hands, eliminating this year’s hope of Hohmann regaining the coveted World 14.1 crown.

Immonen had faltered last year in the final 16, but this year had earlier predicted he would try much harder and bear down in the later stages. He seems to be holding true to his word. Many fans were hoping for a Oliver versus Thorsten showdown, but Mika seems to be the better man in 14.1 as of late. If Immonen wins, this would mark his second World title since his iconic win in Cardiff at the World 9-Ball back in 2001.
“This is an important title for me. To be the World Straight Pool Champion will prove to the world I am not a one trick pony”,said Immonen.

Thomas Engert Takes German 9-Ball Pool Open

August 11th, 2009

Thomas Engert has won the 93rd event of the Eurotour. It is Engert’s 9th Eurotour win since he won the second edition in 1992. In the final Thomas booked a very convincing victory against Fabio Petroni from Italy, trouncing the Roman Gladiator with nine games to one. The only one to sink the winning nine-ball pool against Engert in this tournament was Jasmin Ouschan, who bested Stepanov as well!! (Mosconi Cup in 2011?)

This German Pool Open was as jam packed as one could expect. Germany was the first European nation to embrace pool and Billiards, as in the 70’s the United States flew in B52’s full of Brunswick tables to supply the Germany-based American soldiers with a quality pastime. From there the game has first trickled allover Germany, then Europe. There are many billiard players in Germany, so the best fifty-five that entered this tournament really upgraded the average level of play. The number of participants totaled two hundred-fifty-five players from over thirty-six countries. A good win for Thomas Engert, especially after an undoubtedly disappointing transatlantic tour (World Pool Masters and Predator International 10-ball Championships in Las Vegas).

The last thirty-two players started on Saturday morning. The German domination of the field was clearly present with seven players ready for action on Saturday morning. But the British pool players did surpass them though. With nine players in the last thirty-two the UK is really taking over control on the mainland; more so, when one realizes that they have had multiple winners in the past three years: Imran Majid, Jonni Fulcher, Daryl Peach, Mark Grey, Darren Appleton and maybe we can count Tony Drago (as a London-based Maltese). Would Karl Boyes, bronze medalist in the most recent World Championships claim his place in the British winners circle?

Karl fell prey to Engert in the semi-finals, just as Daryl Peach in the first round on Saturday. Karl looked very good in the quarters, where he beat Nick Van Den Berg with 9-7; in the last sixteen Nick handed a donut to Jonni Fulcher! Markus Juva, previous winner of the Austrian edition, reached the semi-final after outing Ralph Souquet and German dark horse Sacha Tege. He fell short against Fabio Petroni though. Petroni was playing hard troughout the whole tournament, never taking anything for granted and really seemed to be on track towards his third Euro-win.

Alas, he has to wait until the next Pool Tour event in Rankweil, Austria. The final was all Thomas Engert, one-way-traffic, a one-man show, a monologue, Thomas was ‘the Meister’.

Engert Wins Challenge of Champions

August 3rd, 2009


Thomas Engert, one of Germany’s most decorated pro pool players over the past 25 years, finally made his presence felt on the international stage by beating countryman Thorsten Hohmann in straight sets, 5-2, 5-2, to win the Challenge of Champions at the Mohegan Sun Hotel & Casino in Uncasville, Conn., Thursday night. The 38-year-old from Duren picked up the $50,000 as champion in the 14th running of the $50,000 winner-takes-all tournament.

Engert, the holder of more than 30 German national titles and a dozen European championships, controlled both sets with crisp shot-making and several fortuitous kick shots. Engert led from the start in both sets, forging a 4-1 lead in the first, and winning the last three racks in the second.

Hohmann, the 25-year-old former world champion, never got untracked against his longtime friend and frequent rival.

With Hohmann, Oliver Ortmann and Ralf Souquet all claiming world crowns for Germany, the Challenge of Champions title finally gave Engert hardware and a payday that matched his compatriots.
