Hull aims for his 4rd final in 30 years
Runner-up at 1993 European Snooker Championship and European Snooker Champion in 1997, Finland’s Robin Hull is one step away from his 3rd final of the Men’s competition this 2023 in Malta: the best of 7 Frames semifinal 1 round match of the Men’s competition where the aged 48 Finland’s competitor faces Scotland’s Ross Muir is underway at St. Paul’s Bay Dolmen Hotel.
Fantastic resilience from Hull: in 1993, 30 years ago, and playing at home soil (Helsinki) he was in the decisive clash but England’s Neil Mosley claimed victory and the title by 8 Frames to 6. Four years laters – and still… 26 years ago -. Hull played his 2nd European Snooker Championships final, facing Iceland’s Kristjan Helgasson and he lifted the trophy, prevailing in the best of 13 Frames match in which he trailed from 3-0 down to claim 7 Frames in a row for his belt and the crown (7-3), a match in which the now EBSA Chairman Maxime Cassis was the referee, played in Biarritz (France).
A lot of experience from Robin Hull, one of 2 competitors this Saturday who can still stop Scotland’s dream of a Grand Final among 2 players from this last country. The other one is Ireland’s Ross Bulman, at his 1st European Snooker Championships Men’s competition semifinals: he is the last obstacle for the 2nd Scotland competitor in the semis, Michael Collumb, in a also best of 7 Frames semifinal 2 round match schedules to start at 1 p.m. also this Saturday March 18th. Semifinal 1 as Bosnian Almedin Hodzic as referee and Moldavian Catalin Cojoc as marker.
The best of 9 Frames Grand Final match of the 2023 EBSA European Snooker Championship, the 415th match of this yeas competition for 177 gladiators, is scheduled to start from 6 p.m. also this Saturday in Malta. Still four candidates do succeed Estonian Andres Petrov as european snooker champion and win also the nomination from EBSA to World Snooker to play on the tour.
