(4) GERMANY 9 vs. KOREA

Germany battled from a 2-6 deficit to eke out a victory from the on-form Korean pair. Korea‘s Lee Gun Jae & Hwang Yong were having a comfortable lead after winning 4 straight racks starting from the 5th. They gave Ralf Souquet & Thorsten Hohmann a chance, the German pounced on it to equalize at 6-all then lead 8-6. It was 6 straight racks for the Germans after losing 4 straight. Korea won the 15th to get closer but lost the battles of safeties in the 16th rack to give the Germany tandem the win, 9-7. It is the 2nd World Cup of Pool final for Team Germany.

(7) TAIWAN 3 vs. 9 THAILAND

The Thai pair of Nitiwat Kanjanasri & Kobkit Palajin  beat team Taiwan of Ko Pin-yi & Ko Ping-chun. The Ko brothers who came of a hill-hill victory over the very strong Orcollo-Alcano tandem, came of short as they did not survive the fast start of the unheralded Thai pair. Thailand took a 3-0 lead then a 6-2 before finishing off the Taiwanese at 9-3. Thailand will now face the formidable German tandem in the final.

Semifinal Recap:

Just like the other rounds, the semifinal had a big surprise. Only few believed that the Thais can reach this far but they have making believers out of many billiard fans. Will the Cinderella run continue? We will know in a while.
