Jérémy Bury celebrates his win after his last carom against Javier Palazón.

The final round of the Agipi Masters has been a demonstration of big matches and high runs so far. Jérémy Bury, who defeated Javier Palazón in the third match of the quarter-finals tonight,  crowned his win with a run of fifteen. The Frenchman will play the semifinals of the Agipi tournament for the first time in his career tomorrow and may see that result as a highlight so far.

Speaking about high runs: Filipos Kasidokostas made the highest against of 21 against Jaspers, Frédéric Caudron followed this afternoon with sixteen against Jaspers and Jérémy Bury made his fifteen tonight. The Frenchman made a big gap with that run in the fifth inning and had a substantial lead over Palazón for some innings. The young Spaniard, who usually has steel nerves and is such a strong finisher, however had to fight together with Bury against the pressure at the end of the match.

He closed the gap after the breakaway of Bury to five points (35-30, fourteenth inning), then missed a crucial bankshot, so that Bury could bring the advantage to 41-33. The Frenchman made a wonderful carom at a score of 46-39, but instead of finishing the match, he lost the control for some time. He needed four more innings in the blistering final to determine the match at 50-42 in 28 innings.

,,Javier couldn't really threat me after my run of fifteen, but for sure he was not far behind during the whole match'', Bury said later.

The Spaniard can prepare now for the battle for places five until eight. Jérémy Bury will meet Marco Zanetti in the semifinal. It is the second clash between two players Agipi after Frédéric Caudron was eliminated by Zanetti yesterday evening.
The France-Italian collision, of course with many French people in the stands, but also with a fanatical group of Italian fans, will be a delicious warm-up for the final. It also means that in any case a player Agipi will be in the final, just like Frédéric Caudron did last year. The home crowd in Agipi can expect two great semi-finals tomorrow and then on Sunday an excellence final match.
