Ryuuji Umeda is the unbeaten leader in his group.
Ryuuji Umeda is the unbeaten leader in Group 2 of the preliminaries, in which all players are ranked after two matches. The Japanese leads with four match points after his victory against Jérôme Barbeillon tonight.
Jef Philipoom beat Glenn Hoffman at the other table and kept his chances alive. The Belgian and the Dutchman played a very bad match. Philipoom didn't search for excuses, but said: ,,I played very bad, I must blame myself for it, because I didn't feel the tables at all.''
Glenn Hoffman struggled with the same problem: the young Dutchman played an appalling party (50-45 loss in 40 innings) and is now definitely off.
Ryuuji Umeda has almost certainly qualified by the victory against Jérôme Barbeillon: 50-43 in 38. 'It could still go wrong,'' the Japanese had calculated quickly after the match. ,,I may nog lose against Hoffman with a bad average tomorrow.''
