Boxing Day for Vassilis Koutsompinas

Markos Kapsabelis, Vassilis Koutsompinas and Leonidas Koutromanos

It was a real Boxing Day this Monday in Pireas where the local club "Pireas Lions" was holding a Christmas Cup with a very nice field of 16 players divided in four groups. Among the competitors, some "big names" were making a WASPA debut, including Markos Kapsabelis (Foggia CT). The group stage saw many close games and in three groups, two players tied in second place with 4 points. Dimosthenis Kalatzis, who was the surprising winner of group 1, defeated organizer Leonidas Koutromanos in the quarter-final round to reach the top 4 but couldn't create another sensation in the semi as he lost to Vassilis Koutsompinas. Koutsompinas later won the final against Markos Kapsabelis in sudden death. Congratulations to the Pireas Lions for another successful tournament! Please note there will be another WASPA event in Greece on December 1, this time organized by the club of Proteas Athens.
