Close contest between Steve Mifsud and Kacper Filipiak

It was tit for tat time in the match between Steve Mifsud of Australia and Kacper Filipiak of Poland. Steve started well with a break of 70 but Kacper in the very next frame hit a 70 of his own. Kacper continued with strong game and won the next two frames to put Steve under pressure. But because of his vast experience Steve took it as a challenge and won the next frame to narrow the deficit. Kacper break of with 50 in the 6th frame made the situation quite bleak for Steve but a controlled game by Steve pushed the match into a decider.
