MEZZ CUES BALTIC POOL LEAGUE 2019 TALLINN
The third stage of Mezz Cues Baltic Pool League 2019 was held in a sunny Tallinn. The host of the main event was an amazing Hill-Hill pool club. Due to the high number of athletes, the first stages of U15 were held in Hill-Hill 2 pool club. This time was 9-ball on the menu. The men division was won by Mark Mägi (EST), women by Valeria Popova (RUS), old boys by Genadijs Kaminskis (LAT) and U15 by Andrei Adziarykha (BLR).
Mägi to another stage win
The final between Andrey Seroshtan (RUS) and Mägi promised to be a close match as Seroshtan has won over Mägi 7:5 in the second round of the stage. As expected, it really was a very tense match where Mägi managed to pocket the last nine and secure a hard-fought 8:6 final win. In their semi-finals, both players did not really have many headaches as Mägi won over Vladislav Shopik (BLR) 8:2 and Seroshtan sailed through his semi-final with a comfortable 8:3 win over Mihkel Rehepapp (EST).
Popova showed her class
In her semi-final, Popova was up against none other than the last stage winner Viktoria Gurova (RUS). Popova was able to control the match in the later stage and take the title by a score 7:5. In the final, she had to win Lyubov Kazachenko (BLR) who has won over this year’s first stage winner Olga Mitrofanova (RUS) 7:4. However, Popova did not have much trouble as she took the title by 7:3.
