Two Hill-Hill Matches Start the DayIPT discussion forum (/forums/index.php)Day 6 image gallery (/pool_billiard_photos/thumbnails.php?album=20)Match schedule for July 29, 2006 (/images/stories//IPT_News/day7_schedule.pdf)On one table, the inscrutable Russian, Evgeny Stalev, faced off against Thorsten “The Hitman” Hohmann, the 2003 World Pool Champion. Though Stalev held an early 3-1 lead, Hohmann slowly got back in the match and took over. Stalev stared off into the distance as Hohmann ran out. When the German reached the hill, he came up empty on his break, and Stalev got up to the table, one-stroking his shots. He got out of line and was forced to play safe, which ended up in a defensive battle that saw Stalev drill one of his balls cross-side. Ending up with the cue ball at one end of the table and the 8 at the other, he played safe, which turned out to be his final shot of the match, as Hohmann was able to clear the table and win 8-3.
