This was his second world title. In 2003 he won the World 9-ball Championship.
The 26 year old German beat his countryman Thomas Engert 200-80 in the final. The losing semifinalists were Max Eberle (USA) and Mika Immonen (Finland).
Hohmann also posted the highest run of the event, a brilliant 174 (unfinished) against John "400" Schmidt. That's just eight points shy of Joe Procita's record for tournament play. Here are the top five runs from the event:
- 174 Thorsten Hohmann
- 132 Mika Immonen
- 127 Max Eberle
- 125 Mike Sigel
- 123 Allen Hopkins
Word is that tapings have been made and that the DVDs should be ready in about 6 weeks.
