因此,在里加的最後一天,8名球員仍然為在拉脫維亞衛冕的機會而戰。比賽開始了,結果讓誰進入了半決賽階段。有趣的是,這個階段沒有頭號種子,所以偉大的庫爾特·馬夫林被投向了中國選手羅宏浩。也許在比賽中取得如此遠的進展壓力到了羅,因為他在這場比賽中沒能給人留下深刻印象,而他的挪威對手則建立了他迄今為止的偉大狀態,將年輕球員吹向了出口,輕鬆贏得了比賽。,4-1。同樣,馬克·喬伊絲再次進入齒輪,推動塞爾比的殺手,斯圖爾特卡林頓到機場終端提前飛行。這些球員的體重肯定已經提高,因為他們現在可以展示他們的價值,當斯諾克精英們打得好的時候,這些技能在很大程度上被掩蓋了。喬伊絲在最後一局以68分的破發以4-1獲勝,證明了這一點。4-1似乎是當天的味道,因為相同的結果在馬修·塞爾特和馬克·金的比賽中創造。金在比賽的這個階段看起來不錯,我相信他可以走遠,但最終一個最好的七場比賽可以擺動任何方式,今天鐘擺轉向塞爾特的角落。然而,馬克·金可以離開里加,他的頭高舉,並建立這個偉大的形式,他的下一場比賽。參加本次比賽的兩名中國選手必須深入挖掘,才能晉級半決賽,而這場比賽並沒有讓嚴冰濤迎戰李航。韓以衣著時髦的著稱,尤其是他選擇的鞋子。今天,他的鞋子被放在超速行駛,他可能需要參觀鵝卵石後,他的馬拉松步行在桌子上。兩位球員都做出了徒勞的努力,以3比3拿下比賽。然而,最後的推落落到嚴冰濤,使他成為一個有價值的贏家,包括經典的兩個紅球廠的道路上。在半決賽中,馬克·喬伊絲對陣庫爾特·馬夫林和嚴冰濤對陣馬特·塞爾特。喬伊絲在比賽中奮力一搏,將比賽帶到決定勝負的位置上,庫爾特不願意輕易翻身。然而,馬克·喬伊絲的潮流在一天更強勁,以126分的破發以5-4拿下比賽。庫爾特·馬夫林應該為他的努力感到驕傲,這個週末已經證明他在斯諾克中是不容忽視的力量。在另外一場半決賽中,比賽採用類似風格,雙方球員都希望獲勝,因此比賽進行到最後。馬特·塞爾特和嚴冰濤之間的斯諾克大戰非常激烈,塞爾特連續贏得兩局。不過,賓濤是當天兩場比賽中最強的,以5比3獲勝。因此,我們面臨著一場令人垂涎欲重的決賽,嚴冰濤和馬克·喬伊絲都面臨他們的處女賽決賽。比賽一開始,雙方球員都因兩邊都有學生失誤而緊張地開始比賽。經過一場曠日持久的安全戰,喬伊絲看起來好像在清理,但錯過了框架密封綠色。嚴然後斯諾克他身後的黑色和喬伊絲給他的對手框打藍色。冰濤然後清理,離開馬克喬伊絲生病像鸚鵡。1-0 嚴秉濤。嚴在二局先得,但只打出18分。然而,喬伊絲,從第一幀受傷,無法鍋球,讓嚴再次和賓濤資本化,並採取了框架,以2:0領先。第三幀開始與炎紅的嚴,最後喬伊絲得到了他的機會與一個紅色的左中口袋。然而,喬伊絲在30日崩潰了。馬克再次得到後,嚴錯過了一個長紅與螺絲延長,並採取了框架與103休息,他的第三個世紀一天。藍色上的斯諾克引起了喬伊絲的悲傷,這過濾到框架與賓濤使它3-1。喬伊絲在下一幀中錯失了一次黑色,讓賓濤輕鬆首發,但他沒能從機會中得到任何機會。當嚴沒有把一個紅色罐子放大時,馬克又被放了進來。喬伊絲殺死了框架,並使其3-2。一個滿球的吻在下一個,離開嚴有一個早期的機會,但再次冰濤耗盡汽油在65。喬伊絲開始開車,但犯規時,他試圖黑色和Yan領先4-2與一幀遠離贏得冠軍。賓濤在下一局的出色開局讓他贏得了比賽,但我們知道,當你接近獲勝線時,壓力總是會來。喬伊絲在炎黃子球上接球,開始發球,但在第45局就崩潰了,嚴冰濤在臨床風格上拿下了框架和配合。冰濤的呐喊使他成為為數不多的獲得冠軍的青少年之一,也是第三位贏得排名賽的中國選手。一張當之無愧的5-2的勝利和一張5萬英鎊的支票。下一站將于04/08/19在中國舉行的國際錦標賽。
