Tomorrow, the final event of the 2017 Euro-Tour series will kick off. The BHR Treviso Hotel will once again be the host for another event, the Dynamic Billard Treviso Open.

142 players from as many as 32 countries will definitely put up high class fights in order to find out who will be the last man standing on Saturday night. Most European top players are on site including rising star Eklent Kaci (ALB), finalist of the recent US Open and winner of the final event of the World Pool Series in New York City, NY, USA. Him and many others will be playing on 16 tables in the BHR Hotel which are located in two rooms, eight tables in each. Of course, all 16 tables are streamed live on the Kozoom website. Other players who are currently on fire include but are not limited to Francisco Sanchez-Ruiz (ESP), Konrad Juszczyszyn (POL) and Fedor Gorst (RUS), just to name a few. It will be incredibly exciting to witness how Kaci will do in Treviso, having finished 2nd and 1st in his last two major events he played. Will he be able to „three-peat“ it or will some other elite players target him and even prevent him from making it into the single elimination round?

The situation in the Euro-Tour rankings is also quite thrilling. David Alcaide (ESP), winner of last year’s Dynamic Billard Treviso Open, is leading the rankings as the current #1 player. However, within 200 points are Ralf Souquet (GER), Niels Feijen (NED), Albin Ouschan (AUT), Nick van den Berg (NED) and Ruslan Chinakhov (RUS) who are all here except van den Berg. The victory of the season is surely not yet set in stone for Alcaide.

The Dynamic Billard Treviso Open will start  on Thursday morning at 09:00 CET with round one matches. The group stages will last until Friday night at 21:00 CET when the event will turn into single elimination mode with the last 32 players remaining. The final of the event is scheduled for Saturday, November 18th, at 18:00 CET.

Probably the player with the longest trip to Treviso, Italy, is Masato Hiraoka who flew in all the way from Japan to participate in the last Euro-Tour event of the 2017 season. The country with the most players present except the host nation is Poland. While the hosts, Italy, have 18 starters, Poland sent 17 athletes to Treviso to try and snatch the coveted title and the prize money, of course.
