Interconnect Dutch Open

Luca Brecel won this weekend for the first time in his career the Dutch Open Interconnect. He succeeded to win in a full Belgian final with a score 5-3 from former professional Bjorn Haneveer. Luca won on Saturday his first two matches rather easily (end score 3-0). He played those matches against Gosse Vledder and Luuk Buijs. By these victories, he was placed in the 1/8 finals on Sunday. In these two games he scored top breaks of 95 and 60. In the eighth final Luca competed against home player Misha Van Vonderen, Luca wasted no time or energy and having breaks of 59 and 54 he won this game with 3-0 as well. In the quarterfinals, he came out against Rene Dikstra and also now he could close down the match winning 3-1. In the semifinals he competed against the Englishman Lee Richardson, Luca took a quick 2-0 lead. But Richardson could take a comfortable lead in the third frame which pushed Luca in a position to need five snookers. Luca succeeded to 4 snookers and thus enforced a respotted black. Luca potted the black ball and came to a 3-0 lead. Richardson could still gain one frame but the frame after that the game was over and Luca qualified for the finals. In that final he played against compatriot and former professional Bjorn Haneveer. Luca came on the lead (3-1) by a break of 90. But Bjorn showed his abilities and came with breaks of 85 and 64 back to 3-3. In the frames that came after Luca was tactically the better player and was able to win the last 2 frames and could thus add Dutch Open to his victories. Greetings, The L-Team
