EMPIRE POOL TOUR - THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS 8-BALL TOUR IN EUROPE

Internationally recognised players like Ronnie O'Sullivan, Tony Drago, Marcus Chamat, Mika Immonen and Nick den Berg have raised the profile and status of the Empire Pool Tour to new heights, and it is now fair to say that it is now the premier 8-ball pool tour in Europe.

With this in mind, it is with great pleasure that we can inform you that in the highest quality field yet, Neil "Razor" Raybone has totally dominated the final of the Empire Pool Tour's 2006 Midlands Open, winning by a massive 10:4 margin over Dutch Pool Superstar, Nick van den Berg.

The 22 year old Raybone must have felt right at home with this event virtually on his doorstep, his home club is the Midlands Sports Club, and although he has only recently started playing American 8 ball (because of the IPT), his rise top the top has been meteoric, although perhaps it's only fair to mention his 7 year "apprenticeship" with English pool!

It's a more remarkable affair considering this is already his second EPT final and then, when the Midlands Open draw was announced it definitely looked lop-sided talent wise, and Raybone was in the thick of the far tougher looking half.

There could be no more formidable an opponent than the current European No.1 - Nick van den Berg, making his EPT debut, but this time it was Raybone's day.
