January 23-25 2009
Sluiskil, host of the World Championships 2010 started up the 2009 World Cup. As always well organized and in front of full stands. With a 3-1 win against Japanese Suzuki I started the tournament but before I left the room I could witness a great sensation. Pierre Soumagne, my French teammate in Laxou played a beautiful match and won against World Champion Marco Zanetti.
