After an exciting and surprising 3 match victory over favourite Brad Sheehan, Robert-Jan Zwiers reached the last 8 of the ETSL. The first 2 matches were both for the USSR (the victory of Brad lasted only 18 minutes!), but the decisive match showed a long Final Scoring game, which went to the US of Robert-Jan, ending up with 18 VP. The 3 matches were played in only 3 hours time! Robert-Jan will meet Tijs de Kler now, while Brad Sheehan will compete against John Bennett for the lower positions.
