Pool Feature

The young Maltese pool player Scott Muscat won this year’s European Pool Championship, beating the Irish Comcar Kerr in the finals.

The European Pool Championship involved pool professionals from all over Europe to take part in tournaments held in Killarney, Ireland.

Muscat made it to the finals of the Under 23 category, beating his opponent with a final score of 7-5. The Maltese men’s team also did very well as they also made it to the finals but were beaten by the English national team, with a score of 8-3.

Though Muscat defeated Kerr, when Muscat was leading with a score of 6-2 he relaxed and the Irish player was able to recover four more points for himself. However, Muscat kept focused and ended the match with a splendid clearance that awarded him the title.

You can watch Muscat’s performance in the finals at 5:18:00 in the video below, uploaded by Irish Pool Online.

The European Pool Championship has been held annually since 1980, and this is the very first time that Malta has ever won it. In 2007, the accomplished snooker and pool player Tony Drago also reached the finals of the men’s category, though he landed second place.
