My job is quite challenging at times, having to commentate on all the matches, being master of ceremonies but I love it all. I consent to my personal data being processed so that World Snooker and its affiliates may use it to deliver news and ticket information, as well as to improve the quality and relevance of services to me through online surveys. He obviously played very well in Q School, do you think that will give him confidence going into the new season? Â What unique challenges do you face in your job? In terms of viewing figures, snooker in Germany is on the up. Â Â How did you first get involved in snooker? It was a development step by step but it was great as the popularity increased all the time and now we have thousands of fans across the country. That must have been six or seven years ago. Plenty of them like O'Sullivan, Hendry and many also love Davis who had a great reception for his exhibition today.

Are you aware of any other German young talented players coming through? We have seen that in darts, where a successful German player Max Hopp was responsible for much bigger media interest. Shaun Murphy is also very popular here, he was so surprised that when he had a day off sightseeing in Berlin he got stopped several times for autographs and photos! Â Do you think there is demand for tournaments in Germany? In terms of the playing and the interaction we will have to see. He is also the master of ceremonies at German snooker events and is widely regarded as the sports biggest fan and supporter in the country. Amongst many other things I asked him about snooker in Germany, his role in the commentary box and much more, read on for the full interview. That shows them what is possible and of course it will make them work even harder. There are a few players doing well, if they will really make they way it is too early to say.

Snooker has reached mainstream media already in Germany, but somebody like Lukas could give that another boost. . At first the German public did not know much about snooker so it was difficult. Â How did the German public receive Snooker when it first started? Our staff is committed to providing your family with the highest quality care and service in your time of need, and we take pride in our responsibility to lighten your burden as you take the first steps toward healing. When did you first hear about Kleckers? Â Who are the favourite Snooker players in the country? Â Are there any good young German players to look out for in the future? Of course he should take confidence out of this. There are so many different matches, which delivered different stories, all of which were brilliant. As well as having to commentate on every match he had to be the master of ceremonies for the event, a role which he does at every professional event in Germany.

That makes his success even sweeter. But we have to wait and see whether they can continue on the right path. And it is an inspiration for others, as it shows that the hard work and commitment pay off. Now the next step has to follow. But it took some time until I first saw him playing.

 I had to explain the the basic rules all the time as people maybe first came in to it by accident, possibly zapping through the channels. Hopefully it will increase as time goes on.  What is your favourite snooker match you have commentated on? We all know that Q School is a very tough way to earn a tour spot. I love snooker, I get to watch and talk about the best players in the world and get to be paid for it, I have the best job in the world. I can't say which match individually was my favourite. All of the snooker players are greatly appreciated by the German fans. Exclusive interview with German EuroSport commentator Rolf Kalb.

Also there are a few other young prospects in Germany, aged 11 to 14. I have acknowledged the informing me of how my data will be processed, and the measures in place to guarantee the protection of my rights as a data subject, and the relevant points of contacts should I have any question or query. It is his spirit which impresses me. If there is a successful German player on the tour, to what extent do you think that will create more interest in snooker in Germany, especially among the media? But he is very well aware that just to stay on tour is a harder job. There was real hunger for top snooker and you shouldn't overdo it as we have a nice balance. The German Masters is working well so you need to be careful with bringing too many events in.

I first got started with snooker as a journalist as I had to do a job on it. Â Any last words about snooker in Germany? Having Lukas as a role model can only help them to develop. Â Â How are the grass roots and the game of snooker developing in Germany? Later on I got offered the commentating job on EuroSport as none of the other journalists knew anything about snooker so it was perfect for me. Of course a successful German player on the Tour will also create more media interest. We all know players that can break through and challenge the top but only a few can do that. Rolf shares a joke with Eurosport presenter Matt Smith Rolf, how pleased are you to see Kleckers qualify through Q School and become the first German player to earn a tour spot since 2013? There are many more players and tables in Germany than there was 10-15 years ago. I understand that my consent will be asked again before any other use be made of my personal data.
