CEB - Grand Prix BILLIARD ARTISTIC
26. - 29. 12. 2002 Niel / Belgium
Another victory for the European Champion Thomas Ahrens
At the first look, not every player was lucky with the date of the tournament. Belgium organized the GP 2002 in the weekend after christmas, but they received inscriptions from not less than 25 players. After the troubles last season in Minderhout (the qualifikation was played with the old system, the main tournament with the new one) everything seems to be "under a good star". The organisation placed two new billiards Verhoeven into a Gym-hall with enough place for 250 people. Extra vip-lounges are also installed and the higher positioned tribunes gave a good overview.

ut... there was made a mistake during calculating the opponents for the 1/4-final.
The results from the 1/8-finals:
|1. Walter Bax 80,851 %
2. Jan Osterloh 75,609 %
3. Jürgen Goris 74,585 %
4. Angelo Casales 74,418 %
5. Patrick Adams 65,594 %
6. Eric Daelman 64,308 %
7. Thomas Ahrens 63,214 %
8. Manfred Hekerle 56,666 %
|The match Bax v Hekerle was o.k., but the other matches had to be: Osterloh v Ahrens(!),Goris v Eric Daelman and Casales v Adams. It doesn't matter at all, but there are some changes in the european ranking, which "normally" not been happened.|
