Player profiles Brian Knudsen, Danmark.

33-årige Brian Knudsen blev udtaget på et Wildcard og synes selv at han er kommet i en god pulje. Sanchez fra Spanien er favoritten i puljen, men Brian har tidligere haft spanieren ude i 5 sæt, så en sejr har været tæt på. Bury fra Frankrig og egypteren Sameh er tidligere blevet besejret og dette kan ske igen. Brian er ikke ukendt med at deltage i store mesterskaber. To gange er han blevet dansk mester og i den tidlige del af billardkarrieren er det blevet til to junior europamesterskaber, mens det senere er blevet til 3.pladser ved verdens- og europamesterskab. I Københavns Billard Klub startede Brian med at kridte køen og siden har han spillet for en række af de store danske klubber og spiller i dag for Fredericia Billard Klub. Et enkelt år i hollandsk billard er det også blevet til. 33-year-old Brian Knudsen was taken at a Wildcard and think that he is in a good group. Sanchez from Spain is the favorite in the group, but Brian has had pressed Sanchez in a 5-set match, so a victory was close. Bury from France and Egypt Sameh was previously defeated and this may happen again. Brian is not known to participate in major championships. Twice he was Danish champion and in the early part of the billiards career, it has been to two junior European championships, while the later has become third at World and European Championship. In Copenhagen Billiards Club Brian began to to play billard and since then, he has played for a number of large Danish clubs and play today by Fredericia Billiards Club. He also played 1 year in the strong Dutch league.

Dion Nelin, Danmark

Trods sine kun 33 år er Dion allerede 7-dobbelt dansk mester i 3 bande carambole og første mesterskab er 17 år gammelt. Kun 16 år satte naturtalentet Dion Nelin den etablerede elite på plads og startede en flot billardkarriere. Sølv ved EM og VM er det blevet til og i 2000 sluttede han som nummer 2 på verdens ranglisten og blev samlet vinder af World Cup serien.

Det blev til deltagelse i World Cup´s over hele verdenen og to gange var med til at sikre hold VM til Danmark. Forholdet til billard er blevet mere afslappet og tiden bruges i højere grad på livet udenfor det grønne klæde, men forventninger til deltagelsen i EM er stadig store. Det er en svær pulje Dion er kommet i, men det er spillere som Dion tidligere har slået og det kan gøres igen Despite he’s only 33 years, Dion is already 7-dual Danish champion in 3 cushion and the first championship is 17 years old. Only 16 years, the huge talent Dion Nelin beat the established elite and started a great billiard career. Silver at World Championship and European championship and he joined in 2000 as number 2 in world rankings and was an overall winner of the World Cup series. A job as a professional billiard players was started and for years he was travelling in billiards and played 6 years in the Dutch league and 4 times, he has been Dutch champion for team. He was participation in World Cup’s all over the world and twice he won the team World Championship for Denmark.

The group is difficult, but Dion believe in his chance.

Dick Jaspers Dick Jaspers is in Denmark to defend his title as CEB European Champion in three-cushion. He has an impressive career where he became a professional billiard player in 1986 after seeing Raymond Ceulemans and Nobuaki Kobayashi on live television during their World Cup final in Valkenburg. Jaspers won two silver medals in the Dutch Championships 1986. In 1987 and 1989 he won the National Championship, and participated three times at the European Youth Championship. He won the gold medal on all of those occasions. Jaspers started playing in the West German division of the Billiards World Cup Association (BWA) which managed professional Grand-Prix tournaments. Jaspers won several of these tournaments and was later suspended by the European Billiards Association for five years for his participation. Several other world-class players received the same suspension. The Union Mondiale de Billard supported this decision and Jaspers and the other players were prohibited from participating in European and World Championships for five years. Following the suspension the players remained members of the BWA and played all their tournaments with them, which resulted in a long-term suspension. In 1989 and 1992 Jaspers became European Champion at the European Nation Championships, and in 1991 and 1992 he won the Finale Coupe d’Europe events. In 1998 the associations and their players came together to resolve their differences. From then on the players were able to play at the ECs and WCs again. Jaspers won the BWA World Three-cushion Championship in 1997 and 1999, and received the Golden KNBB Pin in December 1999. In October 2000, Jaspers dominated the UMB World Three-cushion Championship. He was not able to defend his title the following year, but he won the Silver Medal at the 2001 World Games in Akita, Japan. In Göynük, Turkey, he won the 2003 European Championships and he became UMB World Champion for the second time in 2004 when he overclassed his Greek opponent Filipos Kasidokostas in the final (15-9, 15-0, 15-5). The event was held in Jaspers’ home country in Rotterdam. Jaspers would win that event again five years later by defeating Torbjörn Blomdahl. In 2005, Jaspers won three Silver Medals (World Games, World Nations Championships and Euro Billiards). On September 3, 2006 Jaspers won his 13th Dutch National Championship event. Japspers defeated Blomdahl again to win the 2009 AGIPI Billiard Masters. A prize of €20.55K was awarded to him. Dick Jaspers er i Danmark for at forsvare sin titel som CEB Europa Champion i 3 bande. Han har en imponerende karriere, hvor han blev en professionel billiard-afspiller i 1986 efter at have set Raymond Ceulemans og Nobuaki Kobayashi på live tv i deres VM-finale i Valkenburg. Jaspers vandt to sølvmedaljer i den hollandske Championships i 1986. I 1987 og 1989 vandt han det nationale mesterskab, og deltog tre gange på European Youth Championship. Han vandt guldmedalje ved alle disse lejligheder. Jaspers begyndte at spille i den vesttyske afdeling af Billiard World Cup Association (BWA), som dengang styrede de professionelle Grand-Prix turneringer. Jaspers vandt flere af disse turneringer, og blev senere suspenderet af Den Europæiske Billiard Association for fem år for hans deltagelse. Flere andre verdensklasse spillere modtog samme suspension. UMB støttede denne afgørelse og Jaspers og de andre spillere havde forbud mod at deltage i EM og VM for fem år. Efter suspensionen forblev spillerne medlemmer af BWA og spillede alle deres turneringer med dem, hvilket resulterede i en lang suspension I 1998 blev konflikten løst og spillerne var i stand til at spille EM og VM igen. Jaspers vandt BWA VMi 1997 og 1999, og modtog de Gyldne KNBB nål i december 1999. I oktober 2000 Jaspers dominerede VM Han var ikke i stand til at forsvare sin titel det følgende år, men han vandt sølvmedalje i 2001 World Games i Akita, Japan. I Göynük, Tyrkiet vandt han i 2003 EM og han blev UMB verdensmester for anden gang i 2004, da han slog sin græske modstander Filipos Kasidokostas i 3 sæt (15-9, 15-0, 15-5). I 2005 vandt Jaspers tre sølvmedaljer (World Games, World Nations Championships og Euro Billiard). Den 3. september 2006 Jaspers vandt sit 13. hollandske mesterskab. Japspers besejrede igen Blomdahl i 2009 i Agipi Billiard Masters. Præmien var 20.550 Euro
