Sung-Won Choi can't believe his eyes after the win and celebrates it with his friend William.

The final of the Agipi Masters will be a match that even the specialists of three-cushion could not have predicted. The 33-year-old Korean Sung-Won Choi reached the final after beating Filipos Kasidokostas tonight. The 29-year-old Frenchman Jérémy Bury is his opponent in the final, which will be played tomorrow at 20.45.

The two finalists in the Agipi Masters referred the establishment to the second plan. The Agipi final was in 2008 and 2009 a battle between Torbjörn Blomdahl and Dick Jaspers, last year Jaspers played against Caudron for the main prize.

Jérémy Bury of course is not a stranger in arena of Agipi, Sung-Won Choi starred this year for the first time and impressed with incredibly exciting matches. He defeated Eddy Merckx last night with only one point (50-49), after two missed match balls and tonight against Kasidokostas the score was again 50-49. This time the Korean missed four times his matchbal. The fifth was more or less a lucky shot. ,,I had two chances to score, but wanted the ball hit after three cushions'', he confessed. He missed, but the ball returned and made the carom. ,,It was basically a lucky shot.''

The Korean felt his hand still trebling of emotion long after the match. ,,It was a match with a murderous tension'', he said. ,,For me this is a great success, but also for billiards in Korea.''
