"Napoleon" Marcus Chamat wants the gold

In a high level semi-final, Marcus Chamat (SWE) defeated Aki Heiskanen (FIN) with 9:4.

In the early stage of the match, both players were playing at equal strength and none of the two was able to gain an advantage over the other. That changed after the 9th rack. Heiskanen seemed to have lost his focus a bit and Chamat took his chances, running away with 7:4. In the 12th rack, Heiskanen had the chance to close the gap a bit but he made too many mistakes which were not tolerated at all by Chamat. “Napoleon” went to the table and conquered the match with 9:4. In the other men's 9-ball semi-final, Francisco Diaz (ESP) remained the upper hand over Nick Malai (ALB) with 9:6.

In the women's division, favourite  Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) got smashed by dark horse Jasmin Michel (GER) with 7:3! Ouschan was not able to perform up to her abilities while Michel was focussed and in the zone at all times. The other semi-final was won by Marika Poikkijoki (FIN) with 7:3 over Line Kjoersvik (NOR).

In The wheelchair division, favoured player Jouni Tahti (FIN) eliminated Fred Dinsmore (IRE) with 7:4. He will play the final against Daniel Luton (GBR) who won against Roy Kimberley (GBR). This final is an exact replay of this year's 8-ball final.
