Here are the results of tonight’s quarterfinal matches of the 2011 World Cup of Pool:

Sweden 5 vs. 9 Korea

The pairing Lee Gun Jae & Hwang Yong has reached the semifinals of the 2011 World Cup of Pool as they beat Sweden’s Marcus Chamat & Thomas Mehtala. The surprising Koreans blitzed the Swedes to a 6-2 lead then held on to win 9-5.

(4) Germany 9 vs. 1 (5) Philippines B

Ralf SouquetThorsten Hohmann of Germany never gave a chance to the legendary pair of Efren Reyes & Francisco Bustamante from the host country to win convincingly their quarterfinal duel 9-1. The Filipino pair did not take advantage of the poor breaking of the Germans as they missed several makable  shots. Ralf Souquet is going deep again in a tournament held at the Block Atrium at SM City North Edsa. The Germans will be facing Korea in the semifinals.

(11) Poland 6 vs. 9 Thailand

After beating two Southeast Asian teams in the past 2 rounds, the Polish team of Karol Skowerski & Radoslaw Babica faced a Thai team of Nitiwat Kanjanasri & Kobkit Palajin with great confidence. The Thai team however, showed that they belong to this tournament that pits the worlds best as they battled Team Poland rack for rack to eventually grab the lead for good at the 11th rack for 6-5 score. They held on to win 9-6 and grabbed a spot in the Final 4.

(7) Taiwan 9 vs. 8 Philippines A

The last game of the round turned out to be the best among the 4 pairings. Team Taiwan of Ko Pin-yi & Ko Ping-chun battled the Philippine’s Dennis Orcollo & Ronnie Alcano in a hill-hill encounter. The Philippines started the game strong to grab 3-rack leads at 4-1 and 5-2. The Ko brothers won 5 straight racks to silence the home crowd at 7-5. The teams split the next 2 racks to put the Taiwenese at the hill 8-6. A dry break from Team Taiwan brought the World’s No.1 and No.3 ranked players back at the table and they did not disappoint as they leveled the match at 8-8. A sorry miss by Alcano in the last rack gave the Taiwenese the victory, 9-8. It’s going to be Taiwan vs. Thailand in the second semifinal pairing.

Day 5 Recap (September 10, 2011): The 2 teams from the host country fell today. One was routed. The other one lost in a heartbreaker. It was tough but as the saying goes, anything can happen. That is the beauty of a single elimination tournament.

It is going to be Germany vs. Korea and Taipei vs. Thailand. 3 Asian teams have made it to the Final 4. Germany is the lone European team but it is the highest seed left. Expect the unexpected in tomorrow’s games.
