Wednesday, 28 March 2012: After a long match over 17 racks, Ivica Putnik (CRO) stayed on top of Paddy McLoughlin (IRE) with 9:8.

The match was a head to head race all the way through. Both players played on an even level and made some mistakes. In the end, McLoughlin seemed to cross the finish line first and went on the hill, taking an 8:7 lead over Putnik. But Putnik struck back and levelled the match at 8:8. Then, McLoughlin had a dry break and Putnik got to the table. He played some good shots but missed the 5-ball. However, the ball went into another pocket and allowed Putnik to stay at the table and run the rack and win the match with 9:8. Tough luck for the Irish.

Other notable results include Ralf Souquet (GER) winning against Albin Ouschan (AUT) with 9:6. Marcus Chamat (SWE) eliminated Eric Robaine (FRA) form the winner’s side with 9:3.
