The final qualification event for the Baltic Pool League 2014 main tournament was held the last weekend in a gorgeous ENTRY Pool Club in Kaunas, Lithuania. On the contrary to the last stage this time the last 8 in the mens division was quite colorful and won by Vladislav Les. However similarly to last event the women and oldboys bracket was dominated yet again by Anna Prisjaznuka. The game format was this time 8-Ball.
This weekend Baltic Pool League made its way to Tallinn, Estonia. The venue was yet again the beautiful Baribal Pool Club. Men division was dominated by Estonians with Denis Grabe winning the event and women and oldboys division ended with a win for Latvias Anna Prisjaźnuka.
Estonians were not very hospitable
In men division Estonians showed some bad hospitality by taking three out of four possible medals. In the first semi final Denis Grabe nearly escaped a loss from his good friend and training partner Raimo Teesaar. The match looked all secure for Grabe as he went to a 7:4 lead, but Teesaar had other plans and made his way up to 7:7. However two times Eurotour winner Grabe showed his composure and made the best of the final rack.
The second semi final was all about Rafig Adigazalov (EST) junior. He left the only foreigner left in the field, Marius Ganusauskas (LIT), with a donut. The all Estonian final did not provide any upsets for the hot favorite Grabe as he cruised to a comfortable 8:4 victory. It must be stated that it seems to be a custom that the winner of the men event does not loose a match.
Regardless of the Estonians home success Domas Mineikis from Lithuania tops the overall ranking and second and third place is tied by Marius Ganusauskas and Latvian Pateris Ermansons.

Lithuanians ruled but failed to win
In mens division with a field of 64 players lithuanians were the most succesfull country to grab six of the first 8 finishes. However it was Konrad Piekarski from Poland that triumphed by beating in the one sided final lithuanian Domas Mineikis 7:1. Piekarski played solid for the whole event and earned the win as the most racks that anyone was able to get from him was only three racks. In his semi final Piekarski won over Daumantas Dieninis (LIT) by a score 7:2. On the way to the final Mineikis was convincing by leaving his fellow countryman Marius Ganusauskas with a donut as he won 7:0.
