Huidji See (NED) ousted David Alcaide (ESP) out of the 9-ball competition with 9:6.

Alcaide probably lost the match in the first few racks.  He made some grave mistakes that put him  in arrears and he never seemed to recover from those mistakes. Huidji See was even taking a nice 5:1 advantage over Alcaide.  Though the Spaniard  tried a comeback, he was not able to tie the match again at any time. The closest he could get was a 4:5 deficit to See. Then the Dutch World 10-ball Champion won another 3 racks in a row which put him on the hill with 8:4. Alcaide fought and tried to avoid the defeat but all he could do was win another rack and lose the match finally with 9:6.

Other notable results from this morning include The Dutch women's team, consisting of Kynthia Orfanidis and Tamara Rademakers, winning over Team Sweden with Louise Furberg and Caroline Roos with 2:0. Team Norway (Ine Helvik and Line Kjoersvik)  sent team Spain (Silvia Lopez and Amalia Matas) home with 2:0.

In the men's team competition, team Spain eliminated team Sweden with 3:0. A small upset was team Poland winning over favoured team Russia with 2:1.
