World Champion Daryl Peach and European number one Mark Gray - Team England.

England Oust Canada - Philippines and Japan Join Last 8

England 8 – 4 Canada

ENGLAND set up a mouth-watering quarter-final clash with Germany as reigning World Champion Daryl Peach and European number one Mark Gray defeated Canada 8-4 and will now play the German duo of Ralf Souquet and Thomas Engert in what promises to be the match of the tournament so far.

"Read More..." for the details.

Canada made a bright start by taking the first two racks but England instantly fought back by winning the next two.

The English then took the lead at 3-2 as they worked their way through the table, the highlight being an exquisite positional shot from the 6 on the top rail to the 7 down table.

A legal break from Gray kept England at the table and the pair looked very smooth as they. Peach didn’t manage to get the requisite three balls past the headstring so control of the table passed back to the Canadians.

Edey messed up on a safety but Gray missed the 4 ball into the centre pocket and that gave the Canadians a great chance to take the rack which they did to go 3-4.

A dry break from Canada prompted a push out from England but Edey snookered himself on the 2 ball. Peach and Gray fought for position throughout but managed to clear to go 5-3.

A twitch from Montal saw the 1 ball stay out of the centre pocket but it was not pottable for the English. They exchanged visits before Gray kicked out of a snooker to combo the 9 ball up table and back down again, into the corner pocket and give them a 6-3 lead.

Gray missed a long pot on the 2 ball on the next and the Canadians gave themselves a real shot in the arm as they reduced the deficit to 6-4.

Montal played a bad shot on the 2 ball to hand the table back to England and a superb shot on the same ball from Gray set up the run out and they succeeded to get to the hill at 7-4.

With awkward cueing, Gray missed the 1 ball. The rack looked a formality for Canada but Edey missed a shocking 7 ball but Gray missed a long cut on the 8 ball with victory in their grasp.

Montal missed a slow bank on the 8 and that left it on for Daryl Peach who made it to set up an 8-4 victory for England.

Francisco Bustamante from Team Philippines shows off his world famous big break.

Philippines 8 – 3 Russia

TOURNAMENT favourites the Philippines moved into the quarter-finals of the PartyPoker.net World Cup of Pool as they moved past an error-prone Russian side at the Outland in Rotterdam.

Francisco Bustamante and Dennis Orcollo looked good in patches but the Russian duo of Ruslan Chinakhov and Konstantin Stepanov made far too many mistakes for opposition of this calibre, particularly the 16 year-old Chinakhov who looked a different player from his Round 1 performance.

The Philippines took the opener but the Russians levelled it in the second before an illegal break in the third allowed the Philippines to move ahead.

The measured run out from the off gave the Philippines a 3-1 lead and then a monster break from Bustamante came up dry to let Russia back to the table. They made a poor safety attempt leaving a 1/9 combo which Orcollo missed.

With most of the balls on the rails, the Russians came unstuck as Stepanov stuck the cue ball to the 9 going from 6 to 7 and Chinakhov missed the pot with hampered cueing. Bustamante played a great safety and although Russia’s escape was good, it left the 7 ball on.

The Philippines made it but Bustamante left his team mate a nasty thin cut on the 9 and although Orcollo bagged it, the cue ball eventually scratched into the centre pocket and gift the rack to Russia, and move the score to 2-3.

However, the Philippines got to the table to re-establish a two rack lead at 4-2. With the Brunswick Gold Crown breaking extremely tough, there was another dry break. The Russians though missed a ball though and Bustamante and Orcollo ran out for 5-2.

An illegal break from the Philippines saw the table returned to the Russians. A poor shot from Chinakhov allowed the Pinoy duo to clear but Orcollo missed a bank shot on the 6 ball.

Chinakhov blundered again, as he missed the brown 7 into the top pocket. Busta missed a table length bank on the same ball, before Stepanov took his turn to miss. Finally it was Orcollo who dropped it and the score moved onto 6-2.

There was further dry break action in the next but an out-of-sorts Chinakhov missed the 1 ball. Both sides had chances before Orcollo played a bad safety on the six ball to give the Russians a chance and they took it for 6-3.

The last two racks were easier going for the Philippines as they took full advantage to secure an 8-3 victory. They will now meet Japan on Saturday evening in the quarter-finals.

Satoshi Kawabata and Naoyuki Oi, Team Japan in action in Rotterdam.

Japan 8 – 5 Holland B

JAPAN ended the hopes of the home nation Holland as the B side of Roy Gerards and Gijs van Helmond, who won a local qualifying event to claim their place in the competition, departed the tournament at the hands of Japan.

Earlier the Dutch A team of Niels Feijen and Nick van den Berg were KO’d in the first round by local rivals Belgium.

Japan's Satoshi Kawabata and Naoyuki Oi led 4-0 and, despite a fight back from the hosts, won 8-5 and now meet the Philippines on Saturday.

Holland made a poor start as they fell 3-0 down in the earlier stages. An illegal break from Japan in the first rack gave Holland a chance but van Helmond missed the 1-ball and it was 1-0.

The Asian pairing doubled their lead despite another illegal break as van Helmond also missed, this time on the 8-ball, in what was becoming a nervous start from the inexperienced Dutch players.

Holland were spending a lot of time in their chairs as it soon became 3-0 before Japan ran out the fourth with the ever-smiling team of Oi and Kawabata laughing and joking their way to a 4-0 lead.

The Dutch finally got another chance in the fifth as Oi missed the brown 7 and the hosts, to the delight of their fans, got on the scoreboard.

Holland won the next as well after a foul from Japan but the momentum switched back to the Asians as teenager Gerards, 19, hit his break shot too hard and the cue ball flew off the table.

Oi's attempted jump shot though, ended in disaster and Holland were grateful of the opportunity to win their third rack in a row.

Japan won the next for 5-3, Holland B claimed the ninth for 5-4 but Japan restored their two rack advantage by winning the 10th.

However, Holland B were staying in touch and the deficit was back down to one after a double kiss on the green six left Holland with a chance that they took.

An undercut six from Gerards that stayed out of the pocket helped Japan move to the hill at 7-5 as they closed in on a place in the quarter-finals.

Gerards then missed the same green six in the next rack and that proved to be their last shot in the competition as Japan sealed the victory.

Shane van Boening and Rodney Morris from Team USA celebrate their win.

USA and Germany Struggle Through - Italy Slaughter Korea

USA 8 – 5 Croatia

The American team of US Open champions Shane van Boening and Rodney Morris eased their way into the quarter-finals of the PartyPoker.net World Cup of Pool but not without a struggle as they overcame the battling Croatian team 8-5 at the Outland in Rotterdam.

Like Germany, who had scraped a win over Poland earlier in the session, USA were not at their best but still did enough to secure a victory. The winning margin was 8-5 and the USA will now play Austria for a place in the semi-final.

The USA had overcome Iceland in routine fashion in their first match but Croatia had pulled off the best recovery so far as they fought back from 7-2 down to defeat Spain.

Croatia's Ivica Putnik beat USA's Shane van Boening in the lag but Croatia produced a dry break. The crucial moment in the opener came when Putnik potted the pink 4 but the cue ball hit the knuckle of the right side pocket and then disappeared into the left side pocket as America went one up.

The Europeans instantly levelled after Van Boening scratched on the break and Philipp Stojanovic made a good pot on the 9-ball after Putnik had left him with a difficult shot after underhitting his previous positional effort.

A Putnik scratch helped put USA back in front before a lucky fluke on the 2-ball from Van Boening led to it becoming 3-1.

Both sides won one of the next two for 4-2 before Croatia had some bad luck when a 7-8 combination worked but the 7-ball ended up tight behind the 9-ball. Putnik opted for power but left it on and it was 5-2.

A missed one from Putnik saw it move to 6-2 and seconds later it was 7-2 thanks to a golden break from Morris.

Croatia had already fought back once in this tournament from 7-2 behind and they would have to do so again.

They made a bright start as a double kiss on the green six from van Boening led to Croatia taking the tenth for 7-3 before the same player missed the same ball in the next and the scoreline now showed 7-4.

The fightback seemed on when Croatia won the 12th but America ended the resistance by winning the 13th to seal the match.

Ralf Souquet and Thomas Engert from Team Germany celebrate their win.

Germany 8 – 6 Poland

THE GERMAN pairing of Ralf Souquet and Thomas Engert moved into the quarter-finals, but they will be relieved to still be in the competition as both players struggled with their break shots before clinching a narrow 8-6 victory over Poland's Radoslaw Babica and Mateusz Sniegocki.

Germany, who are one of the favourites to win the title on Sunday, now meet either England or Canada in the last eight on Saturday.

Poland won the lag but Germany were soon at the table with Engert sinking the 9-ball for 1-0. A German dry break gave Poland a chance in the second but Babica's missed brown 7 proved costly and it was 2-0.

Souquet's break in the third was illegal and the Poles ran out from there. Both sides were having trouble mastering the break as Babica came up dry in the fourth and Germany moved two ahead before Engert's break saw him opt for power that sent the cue ball to the carpet. Poland capitalised to now trail by 3-2.

Germany then restored their two-rack advantage before Poland, aided by an outrageous fluke from Sniegocki where his pot on the green six missed in the top right pocket and then went in the side pocket brought it back to 4-3.

It should have been 5-3 to the Germans but Souquet failed to down a pottable 8-ball and that gifted Poland the rack for 4-4.

Poland, took the lead for the first time in the match by winning the ninth, although a dry break in the tenth gave Germany a chance to tie the match up instantly.

Unbelievably, Germany had more problems with their next break. So from five breaks they had had four dry breaks and one foul and again it proved costly as Poland moved two racks away from a huge upset.

Poland then also produced a dry break and Engert and Souquet ran out for 6-6.

Souquet decided to break from the other side of the table for the first time and had his first legal break but had to play safe. However, a one-rail escape from a snooker from Babica went wrong to give Germany ball-in-hand and they moved to the hill at 7-6.

When they needed it most, Engert came up with a good break and Germany ran out to triumph 8-6.

Team Italy - Fabio Petroni and Bruno Muratore.

Italy 8 – 0 Korea

IN THE FIRST match of the day, Italy secured only the fourth whitewash in World Cup of Pool history as they destroyed Korea 8-0.

A succession of bad shots and a dose of bad luck contributed to Korea exiting the tournament as Italy booked a quarter-final spot with China.

Korea had produced one of the performances of the first round as they eliminated last year's runner-up Finland.

But Kim Woong-dae and Jeong Young-hwa could not recapture that form in the early stages of their last 16 match against Italy.

The Italian side, consisting of Fabio Petroni and Bruno Muratore, raced to a 5-0 lead, aided by a number of poor shots and misjudgements from the Koreans.

Korea came up with a dry break and then did not get another shot until the third rack as Italy moved two ahead with an error-free opening.

The Asians got to the table in the third but made no impact as Jeong missed an attempted 1-9 carom before Kim dogged a simple-looking 8-ball into the side pocket for 3-0. Italy had made two mistakes in the rack but still won it.

Woo was struggling and missed a straight-forward 7-ball down the side rail and it was 4-0 before Italy ran out the fifth to extend the advantage further.

Despite a dry break and Korea having a number of opportunities the score then ticked over to 6-0. However, for the first time Korea had been unlucky, instead of playing poorly in a rack.

A good break from Muratore left Italy with a shot on the 1-ball and it was 7-0. Italy also had a shot on the 1-ball in the next but Muratore missed the pink 4 to give Korea another chance. They could not capitalise as Kim failed with a 4-9 carom and the match was over 8-0.
