Israel 2 also notched up a 5-0 win over Romania 5 in the men’s section also.

Belgium 1 Masters also picked up three points thanks to a 3-2 win over Ukraine. Mario Van Herk and Alain Vandersteen both lost their individual matches against Alan Trigg but won all other three frames with Van Herk having breaks of 54 and 65.
