SEOUL - The Blomdahl of the second day was not even a shadow of the player he was on the starting day in the LG U + Cup. The second round Caudron was more than two times better than the Caudron from the first session. Marco Zanetti was the best man of the sixteen players in the tournament over two rounds. Only Nikos Polychronopoulos is the only of sixteen qualified for the quarterfinals after two days. Dani Sánchez and Nguyen Quoc Nguyen will definitely not return for the knock-outs.

That is the result after the second day of the tournament, continuing the struggle between Europeans and Asians. Two big guns, the world champion and the Asian champion, are out of the game. In the four groups, the battle is still completely open. The last day will be decisive for the final rounds.

Torbjörn Blomdahl was the most capricious in two days, with a 5.000 average on the opening day and 1.000 average in his second performance. Haeng-Jik Kim, who defeated the Swede 40-27 in 26, maintained his chance to qualify. The Korean meets the Vietnamese Nguyen in his last match. Torbjörn Blomdahl bumps in the other match with Choong-Bok Lee, who bested Nguyen 40-35 in 28 and is the only player with four match points in the group.

The top five in averages after two days:
1 Marco Zanetti 2.963
2 Jin-Pyo Hong 2.344
3 Dick Jaspers 2.105
4 Jung-Han Heo 2.030
5 Torbjörn Blomdahl 1.971.
The highest run came from Blomdahl with 18.

The ranking in the last group after two days:
1 Choong-Bok Lee 4-1.633-5
2 Torbjörn Blomdahl 2-1.971-18
3 Haeng-Jik Kim 2-1383-8
4 Nguyen Quoc Nguyen 0-1.111-5.
