Jim   Chawki  (SWE)  with  8:4.  Both  players performed  on  a  high  level  but  it  could  be  seen  that  Alcaide  had  much  more experience  on  his  side.  Chawki  played  a great  semi-final.  He  even  managed  to  get  a 3:1 lead over Alcaide. But then the tide turned in  the  match.  Alcaide  played  much  stronger and  ran  out  4 of  his first  5 racks.  That  might have  impressed  Chawki.  The  Swede  also scratched  on  his break  shot  two consecutive times  in  the  10th  and  12th  rack  which probably  broke  his  neck  in  this  final  match. Alcaide  punished  his   mistakes   and  jumped up  when  he  pocketed  the  8-ball  to  win  the match with 8:4.
In  the  women’s  final,  Kjoersvik  showed  no  mercy  with  Marika  Poikkijoki (FIN). Again,  the Finish player  could not  win the event after  eliminating Jasmin Ouschan  out  of  the  tournament.  Maybe she  had  lost  too  much  energy  in  the semi-final. Kjoersvik simply played stringer and deserved the victory with 6:1.
In  the  wheelchair  division,  all  odd  were  on  World  Champion  Henrik Larsson  (SWE).  But  Dinsmore had  other  plans.  He got  an  early  lead with  3:1 and protected that until the end of the match.
