van den Berg hammered current 8-ball world champion Karl Boyes (England) 8-1. The victory was worth 5000 € for the Dutchman and Boyes got 3300 € for second place.
The final was a repeat of last month's Austria Open final. That time Boyes came out on top.
In the semifinals of this 10-ball event van den Berg edged Mark Gray (England) 8-7 while Boyes defeated Mario He (Austria) 9-3.
This was van den Berg's fifth win on the Euro Tour. The victory takes him to fifth place on the all-time list.
Boyes is currently on an impressive hot streak. In addition to winning the 2010 8-ball world championship he has finished 2, 1, 2 in the last three Euro Tour events.
The win lifts van den Berg from seventh to third in the Euro Tour Ranking. Losing finalist Boyes stays in first. Daryl Peach (England) holds on to his No.2 position.
The tournament was played 26-28 August 2010 at the Entertainment & Leisure Centre Flamingo 8, Vantaa, Finland. It was the fifth event of seven on the 2010 Euro Tour. Next up is the Portugal Open which runs from 28-30 October 2010.
