The 2010 WPA World Eight-ball Championship was an eight-ball world championship, organized by the World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA), and held 4–10 April, 2010 at the Fujairah Exhibition Centre of the Al Diar Siji Hotel in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates. A total of 64 players competed in the tournament.

The event was won by Englishman Karl Boyes, who defeated Niels Feijen in the final 13–12.[1][2]

Tournament summary[edit]

The event was split into two sections, a double elimination round, splitting the field from 64 to 32, and then a traditional knockout round.[3] In this round, former two time 9-Ball world champion Thorsten Hohmann lost to Masaki Tanaki [de] 8–7, thanks to a miscue in the final rack.[4]

David Alcaide also lost in this round of the tournament, despite being 5–3 ahead of Oliver Medenillia [de]; he would lose 8–6.[4] Mika Immonen lost in the round of 32 to Ruslan Chinachov.[5] Chinachov would make it to the semi-finals where he would lose to Karl Boyes, whilst Feijen would overcome Darren Appleton.[2]

In the final, Boyes had the much better start and led Fiejen 4-0 and 11-5, before his opponent started a catch-up and levelled at 12-12. Boyes won the final rack, winning 13-12.[1]
