Swedish 10-ball Open – 17th place

July 15, 2012

Stockholm next! Thursday the mens divison starts, but we are not allowed to participate in both divisions in this tournament. That means that I will only play in the womens division that starts on friday. This is a womens eurotour with ranking points for the European ranking so it is an important tournament.

The tournament

We started play friday at 11:30, I had a bye the first round. My bye led me to Monica Webb, my no one bet for winning the tournament. After a rocky first game she played flawless, I lost 6-0, fighting my best but it was not enough. One loss side I met Barbara Bolfelli (ITA) and we had a long match ending 6-5 for me. I had a few really good shots and I had a few really bad ones. But I won, that was the important thing. Last match for the evening to get to the single elimination was against Silvia Gaudino ( ITA). She played the best I have ever seen her play and I just did not get any rolls. Race to six is a short race when nothing is right and 0-6 once more. I really did not play bad at all, I just could not get the balls to roll my way. I am not disappointed with my performance really, I am just disappointed not to get to the single elimination.

Anyway, I had a really good time in Sweden and Ann-Sofie and her husband took good care of me and my husband:) We had fun! At night, all us looooosers played some pool in RoQs vip room and we had a blast. Thank you!

Monica won the tournament as I predicted and Line came third. You will find all the results and the ranking here: http://www.swedish10ballopen.se

Here are some pictures, but the quality is not very good. It is taken with my Iphone and it was dark.
