After the two competitors split the first two games of the second set, Hohmann had a chance to take the lead in the third game but missed a clean cut of the 4 ball in the side pocket. His opponent grabbed the rack, then used a combined shot on the 10 ball to increase his lead to 3-1. The German seemed well placed to reduce his deficit to 3-2 but left the ball 7 in the jaws of the corner pocket, allowing Krause to win the set.

The Spaniard cleared the table to reduce the lead to 3-2, then tied the score when Grabe missed the 3rd ball in Game 6.

The Estonian built a 2-0 early in the next period thanks to a break-and-run and a victorious safety rally on the 6 ball. Grabe then tacked on another play when his opponent missed the 6. ball in the next play, but relinquished control of the table in the fourth play when he scratched on the break. Trailing 3-1, Sanchez-Ruiz had a chance to take the lead but missed the 2nd ball after the break. After throwing the 8 ball into the corner pocket after a save, the Spaniard had one last chance to stay in the game but pushed the 9 ball off the corner pocket, giving the match to Grabe.
