Anders Buhl Hansen had big balls in Berlin

There was a lot of fun and excitment last week-end in Berlin (Germany) where the local club of Sparta Spreeathen 74/82 was organizing the 27th Berliner Bären Pokal. Players were not only coming from Germany but also from England and Denmark. The Berliner Bären Pokal is a very special that is played with the old German rules, with large ball and without referees. The main event attracted 16 players and there were a lot of close games. In the end, Anders Buhl Hansen (Denmark) beat Björn Kegenbein (Germany) in the final (5-3) while Michael Stolzenberg was third and Marcel Kwiatkowski was 4th. Phil Holmes (England) won the 50+ tournament while Björn Kegenbein won the U20 event. Rasmus Lund won the tournament organized for the players who were there only on saturday. There was also a small tournament for national teams where germany was 1st, England 2nd and Denmark 3rd.
