Piekarski victorious over Novosad

Konrad Piekarski (POL)
After heavy fighting, Konrad Piekarski (POL) in the end was able to eliminate Evgen Novosad (UKR) out of the 9-ball tournament with 9:7. It was tough for Piekarski to find into the match. Novosad played more solid in the beginning and used his chances to gain a 3:1 advantage over Piekarski. Then suddenly one could feel a jolt in Piekarski’s game. The youngster who will soon turn 19 years seemed to get more confidence in his performance. He played much stronger and manage3d to tie the match at 6:6. Novosad seemed to be shocked and could not focus on his game anymore. That’s when Piekarski saw his chance and stone cold won the racks which were needed to take him into the single elimination round of the
final 64 players.
Other notable results include Bahram Lotfy (DEN) defeating Eric Robaine (FRA) with 9:4.
