The situation in the medal table has not changed too much, but the distances are pretty close between the different nations. Poland is still leading the table with 2 Gold, 1 Silver and 3 Bronze Medals. The Russian team is up their neck, only having one Bronze Medal less than the Polish. Third ranked nation is Finland with one medal of each colour.
Earlier today, matches of the 9-ball individuals were played. Defending Champion Konrad Juszczyszyn (POL) took down Marc Turpel (LUX) and eliminated him with 9:1 from the field. Denis Grabe (EST) paved his way into the round of the last 32 players in 9-ball by outplaying Jani Uski (FIN) 9:8. In the all-Russian class between Fedor Gorst and Konstantin Stepanov, Gorst remained on top in the end and won the match with 9:6. „The Kaiser“ Ralf Souquet (GER) had to deal with „The Terminator“ Niels Feijen (NED). While Souquet has already taken a silver medal in the 8-ball earlier this week, Feijen was still looking for his medal to come. But Souquet destroyed that dream of Feijen by winning 9:5. With Feijen out of the 9-ball, he will not be able to win a medal in the individuals in this year’s European Championships.
團體賽前稍早也進行了男子9號球。衛冕冠軍波蘭的 Konrad Juszczyszyn 9:1 輕取來自盧森堡的 Marc Turpel。Fedor Gorst 與Konstantin Stepanov 之間俄羅斯內戰，則由 Gorst 以 9:6 淘汰老大哥。另一場比賽中由名人堂德國名將 Ralf Souquet 對決 “荷蘭終結者” Niels Feijen。Souquet 在此前的8號球項目獲得銀牌，反觀 Feijen 則仍在覓尋著! 然而 Souquet 最終以 9:5 淘汰 Feijen，隨著在9號球項目的出局，也代表著 Feijen 今年奪牌的最後希望遭徹底粉碎。
Another national clash happened between the two Dutch players Jan Rempe and Marc Bijsterbosch. Young Rempe sneaked past Bijsterbosch by taking the match with 9:8. Joshua Filler (GER) wasted no time with Sergey Lutsker (RUS), winning 9:2 in 25 minutes. French up and rising player Alex Montpellier sealed the destiny Eklent Kaci (ALB) in the 9-ball individuals by making it with 9:8 over the Albanian. Sam Wetzel (LUX) surprisingly took out newly crowned 10-ball European Champion Mieszko Fortunski (POL) 9:8. That surprise was as close and as unexpected as the match between Mats Schjetne (NOR) and Francisco Sanchez-Ruiz (ESP). 9:8 was the final result in favour of Schjetne.
另一場國家內戰在荷蘭的 Jan Rempe 與 Marc Bijsterbosch 之間上演，年輕選手 Rempe 9:8 力克 Bijsterbosch。新科美國公開賽冠軍 Joshua Filler 則僅花了25分鐘以 9:2 送 Sergey Lutsker 返回俄羅斯。法國選手 Alex Montpellier 9:8 驚險淘汰阿爾巴尼亞新星 Eklent Kaci 挺進最後32強。另一場搶尾局大戰中，挪威的 Mats Schjetne 出乎意料地以 9:8 淘汰了西班牙年輕好手 Francisco Sanchez-Ruiz 晉級下一輪32強。
