Eurotour Sankt Johann – Alpendorf

It has been a while since I visited the Eurotour in Austria. This time it was double sweet because I had my charming girlfriend on my side and because I was able to meet many friends again! I saw lots of new (young) faces on the tables, this made me feel a little old school 🙂
Happy to see that new talents are on their way and this makes pool alive. Congrats to Joshua Filler to stay on the winner side till the finals. Great way to be a runner up! Congratulations to Niels Feijen to win the title again in Austria!!

Ginky Memorial Tournament Steinway Billiard Cafe

I went to New York for my street portraits http://www.street-portraits.eu/ project.
Meeting friends was also another reason to go there. Gail told me then about the Ginky Memorial tournament and from that moment it was crystal clear I will take some pictures there.
 
I was surprised and happy to see Adam Smith there again, haven’t seen him since Derby.
 
A big thanks goes out to Thorsten for showing me around in the City!!!
 

Thanks to all the peeps there who made this tournament possible. Congrats to the winner Mike Dechaine!

Emotions of the European Pool Championships 9 Ball Finals

What a long day that was. After finishing the gallery I went running to the peer. It’s so beautiful here…
With the breakfast I tried to get some energy for the day and afterwards I went to the tournament.
This day I captured a lot of emotion from all the players with working at the same concept as the day before. No std shots, because I think this way I can make you feel how it is to be here. So enjoy the finales with me and Click on the picture to enjoy the gallery.

RIP “Professor”

I just read on Facebook that Grady Mathews passed away. I met him some years ago during the Derby City Classic.
The little time I spoke with him and saw him on the table showed me a man who loves our sport and enjoys playing it.

 

Rest In Peace…
