It was also determined by many  missed  shots  from  both  contestants which proved the amount of nervousness that was obviously  striking them. But since both of them   were  affected,  none  could  get  a  real advantage over the other player which cause dthe match to result  in a 5:5 hill-hill situation. Poikkijoki  was leading with one rack most  of the time  during  the match so  she  decided to do that one more time. She won the 11th rack and took the match with 6:5 off Nechaeva.
A  huge  upset  happened  in  the  men’s   division,  when  young  Ruslan Chinakhov  (RUS) defeated BCA Hall of Famer Ralf Souquet  (GER) with 8:5. At the same time, it  was smooth sailing for Oliver Ortmann (GER)  (8:3 over  Dino Cerimagic (BIH)) and Stephan Cohen (FRA) (8:1 over Alen Muratovic (BIH)).
