Feijen's upset of Efren Reyes on Thursday...

One night after barely squeezing into the Round of 32 with a 9-8 win over Ramil Gallego, Earl Strickland was eliminated from the 2001 Admiral World Pool Championship in Cardiff, Wales, on Thursday night. German Andreas Roschkowsky topped the five-time Player of the Year, 9-7, to advance to the last 16, beginning on Friday.

A few hours later, Dutchman Niels Feijen knocked out Efren Reyes, 9-5. Backed by a large collection of fans, Feijen took advantage of Reyes' difficulty on the break. "I was breaking the same way he was," said Feijen, "but the balls were bunching up for him. I know he's a better player than me in the long run."



...was cause for celebration in Cardiff.
