Hull Claims Second Euro Crown, Regains Tour Place

Congratulations to Finland’s Robin Hull, who has today captured the EBSA European Championship in Poland with an emphatic 7-2 win against Welsh amateur Gareth Allen.

Having scored heavily throughout the competition, Robin moved into an early 3-0 lead in the final with breaks of 99 and 56, before completing victory with back-to-back century breaks.

It is the second time that Robin has captured this title, following his first victory back in 1997 and is a result that will see him earn a two-year tour card for the professional circuit, beginning immediately, notwithstanding the fact that he has missed out on the opening events of the campaign.

Well done to Welshman Darren Morgan and Belgium’s Wendy Jans, who won the Masters and Ladies events respectively.

Wells Wins EBSA Championship 2011

After a hectic week or so in Sofia, today saw Welsh talent Daniel Wells emerge as the victor in the mens event following a 7-4 victory against Irish former professional Vincent Muldoon today.

For a full match report over at the EBSA website, with details on victories for Wendy Jans and Steve Judd in the ladies and Masters events, please click here.

With Wells already safe on the main tour for 2011/12 having received the Welsh nomination, the EBSA have now nominated Muldoon for the last remaining tour spot but as the likes have Michael Wasley have found out in the past, World Snooker do not have to award the place to the runner-up in circumstances such as this.

With potentially two spots available as the uncertainty around Igor Figueiredo continues, hopefully we will receive confirmation soon with the season starting tomorrow with the first PTC…
