SCHILTIGHEIM - The final day in the last qualification round of the Agipi Masters promises to be a hard fight for  the four remaining places. Seven players are still in the race for the final round, three out of ten in this round are already eliminated.

Dick Jaspers is even with four matchpoints out of three and 2.403 average not sure of qualification. The Dutchman needs a win are at least a draw tonight (21.00) in his last game against Zanetti.

Filipos Kasidokostas (group C) and Martin Horn (group D) are the leaders after two days. Both players are unbeaten, the Greek after three matches, the German after two games, including the victory with one point in his match against Dick Jaspers.

The battle for the leading position in C was a battle between Kasidokostas and Blomdahl in the late night. The match was decided in favor of the young Greek, who particularly to a run of twelve made a big gap (39-19) and then finished simply with 50-30 in 30 innings.

That means for Blomdahl, who didn't show a strong impression yesterday night, that he needs a win or a draw in his match against Tayfun Tasdemir (17.30). Both players gathered four points out of three matches, the difference in average is minimal (1.477/1.443), but in favor of Blomdahl.

Four players in the C group play one more session (Kasidokostas-Palazón, Blomdahl-Tasdemir), in the other group, the battle is still wide open.

Martin Horn, Dick Jaspers and Marco Zanetti seem to be the three players competing for two places, but even Lütfi Cenet has a small chance if his wins his last two games against Ryuuji Umeda and Martin Horn.

Marco Zanetti needs at least one win out of two matches against Horn and Jaspers. The German will be advanced for the final round if he defeats Zanetti or Cenet and Jaspers needs a win in the final evening session against Zanetti.

The ranking in the two groups:
Group C:
1 Kasidokostas 3-6-1.648-12
