A message from Fred Dinsmore:
“I was very lucky to win because the start of the event was dicy for me. I was nervous, but fortunately my confidence grew when I started pocketing some difficult shots to perfection. I´m very happy to win this title for the 3rd time. It was not easy because I faced top players like Henrik Larsson (SWE), Jouni Tähti (FIN) and Kurt Deklerck (BEL). I also did not believe I would win because I was not well before tournament, so this is a great victory for me and I feel very happy”
