Final match of the Dynamic German Open to begin

Saturday, 27 August 2011: Serge Das (BEL) defeated Manuel Ederer (GER) in the first semi-final with 8:6.

Though Das managed to get on the hill with a comfortable 7:3 lead over Ederer, the match was far from being over then. Ederer tried to fight back and snatched rack after rack, making the score 7:6. In the 14th rack, everything looked quite promising for Ederer. He was at the table with all balls spread wide open. If he would run that rack, it would have been his own break to come up in the final rack. But Ederer missed a makeable 5-ball. He left a difficult combination shot for Das as the only alternative. Das took his time and fired the combination shot, sinking the 10-ball in the corner pocket and earning his place in the final of the Euro-Tour the second time in a row.

In the other semi-final, Dimitri Jungo (SUI) ousted Karl Boyes (GBR) with 8:5

Jungo proved to be the better safety shot player and gained an advantage over Boyes with 3:2. Boyes had the break shot and pocketed two balls when he missed an easy 1-ball. That was the ignition for the Swiss player. Jungo accepted the gift and took a 4:2 lead over Boyes. Boyes was forced several times by Jungo to play a foul. With that tactic, Jungo went on the hill 7:3. Boyes could win two more racks in a row. In the 13th rack, Jungo again forced Boyes with an excellent safety shot to commit a foul. Jungo took ball in hand and ran the rack which made him the winner with 8:5.
