46th EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS BILLIARD ARTISTIC
May 4th - 7th, 2017 Brandenburg / GER
This time Turkey and Belgium missed the chance to have more participants, they only inscripted 3 players.
The lucky ones are Clement and Grewatsch, so France and Germany got an extra place.
The changement to sets with 7 figures neither was decided with players nor with the international players commission.
In october 2015 there was a discussion with the players commission with a lot of promises, nothing came true.

Since the new "and much better" system is handled there is now an new - negative - european record:

Can this be a official average? Of course not.
