Irapuato, Mexico
August 29-31 2008

Mexico, one of the biggest countries in 3-cushion billiards chose Irapuato to be the place for this year’s World Cup. Roberto Rojas, a great player and now we know also a great organizer, took care of us during the tournament.

I was drawn against young Mexican Raymundo Munoz in the first round. Some of my collegues already congratulated me before the match. But this young man can play! 3-0 for me (1.875) but Munoz had 13 in 7 innings in the third.

On Saturday Ramon Rodriguez of Peru ended my tournament beating me 15-11, 15-10, 15-9. Reading the numbers one might think I had a chance but I was off boil and scored only 1.034.

Jaspers beat Sanchez in the final after crushing Caudron in the semis and took a good lead in the total World Cup standing.
