Pool - The 3rd Annual 2015 Deurne City Classic

28th May - 1st June 2015 / Ames Deurne, Deurne, Netherlands


The host nation's Alex Lely was the stand out performer in the 3rd Annual 2015 Deurne City Classic; claiming titles in the One Pocket and Molinari 9 Ball Main events.

256 players, both professional and amateur, took part in one of European Pool's headline tournaments - with 20,000Euros on offer.

In a very similar structure to the popular Derby City Classic from the USA, there were a number of different disciplines that the field could play in.

Lely picked up the biggest cheque of the festival (3,000Euros) with his victory in the main event. He is the third Dutchman in a row to win the honour after Nick Van Den Berg in 2013 and Niels Feijen last year.

Courtesy of his One Pocket success as well, Lely was also named the overall 'Master Of The Table'.

It was a great outcome for German players too, with Florian Hammer taking home 500Euros when conquering the Kamui 9 Ball Challenge, whilst the young Joshua Filler retained his 9 Ball Bankpool crown from 2014.

​The Netherlands also had Melvin Reese win the 14.1 Shootout.
