Europe won pool’s 2014 PartyPoker Mosconi Cup, beating the USA 11-5 in front of a boisterous crowd at the Tower Circus, Blackpool.
There was no-one more proud than Blackpool’s Karl Boyes who made it three Mosconi Cup wins from three.
Boyes said “It’s amazing. It’s my third Mosconi Cup which is a brilliant achievement and obviously in my home town it’s very special.
“The first win (in 2010) was my favourite in terms of drama with the scoreline. Last year in Vegas was very much a one-sided tournament.
“The last two days were a bit like Vegas last year because we broke away and got the win. When I saw the team sheet, I was a little disappointed because obviously I want to play and win the Mosconi Cup.
“I’ve played three doubles, one singles and feel like I’ve played well and not really got the recognition – I’ve played in three Mosconi Cups and only lost three matches.”
