Good to hear he's hungry for more title's so there will be more to look forward to in the coming future from the best 3 Cushion player The Netherlands has and most likely ever will have.

World Cup 3C Blankenberge Belgium won by Dick Jaspers
In a very exciting final, Dick Jaspers has won the World Cup 3C tournament in Blankenberge Belgium beating Semih Sayginer from Turkey.
Sayginer on the way back after some years of absence in tournaments like these played great during this tournament.
Only being stopped by Dick Jaspers in the final who reached a great 2.353 average and 2.061 in general.
After an according to himself lesser period this win really did good and moved him back in the UMB top 5.
After a week of great matches Dick Jaspers won his 4th World title in 3 Cushion in Cairo.
He played an exceptional tournament, won all of his 7 matches, played a world record average of 2.353 and had a high run of 12.
A magnificent result by an exceptional player.
