SCHILTIGHEIM - The finale of the Agipi Masters 2012 is going to be a duel between two worlds, two cultures and two generations as well: Torbjörn Blomdahl (49), who is a lifetime on the top of three cushion, will play Kyung-Roul Kim tomorrow (Sunday), the 32-year-old Korean who defeated Martin Horn in a stunning end rush tonight.

Torbjörn Blomdahl plays his second final in Agipi, for Kim it's gonna be an absolute highlight in his career so far. He can be the successor of his compatriot Sung-Won Choi, but has to beat the Swede, who seems to be in the form of his life.

Kyung-Roul Kim excelled against Horn in a very hige class and solid match. The match was very exciting until the endrush of Kim. Therefor it was constantly in balance (12-12, 17-17, 22-22 and 27-27), until Horn took a lead between the 12th and 16th inning with small runs, which brought him to 38-32.

It seemed the decision in the match, but at 40-34, the Korean fought back with a small run of four to 38-41 and then finished in the next with twelve to 50-43 in 20.

The final will be a duel between two very attractive players. Torbjörn Blomdahl showed his top form against Sung-Won Choi tonight with an amazing average of 3.571, Kyung-Roul Kim finshed 2.500 against Horn.

The schedule for Sunday:
10.30: for seventh place: Kasidokostas-Sánchez.
14.00: for fifth place: Jaspers-Merckx
17.00: for third place: Choi-Horn
20.30: final Blomdahl-Kim.
