Hohmann Takes 14.1 World Tourney
Sep 6, 2011, 2:28 PM

Thorsten Hohmann, undoubtedly one of the favorites in the 64-player field at the World Tournament of 14.1, did little to disappoint in the opening round-robin stage. The 2006 World Straight Pool Champion went unbeaten, winning all seven matches to advance easily into the 32-player knockout round.

But in the one-and-done phase, Hohmann really got rolling. The 32-year-old German rolled through all five of his opponents, posting 100-ball runs in each match en route to the $20,000 title.

In the final, Hohmann faced Mike Davis, the first American to advance to the final in the years since Dragon Promotions revived the 14.1 franchise in 2006. But Davis was no match for Hohmann, who put together a run in the triple digits to establish a big lead. Davis put together runs of 38 and 41, but the German easily closed out the match.

Though not officially sanctioned by the World Pool-Billiard Association, and thus not an official world championship, the World Tournament provided Hohmann with yet another major 14.1 crown to add to his impressive resume.
