2005 World Cup men’s champion Michael Schmidt of Canada is very well placed to stand atop the rostrum once again, now

Top 8 Men

placed second to top seed Matt Miller of London, England.

In turn, Miller will be determined to give his home country just their second World Cup men’s title, the first won by Bernie Caterer in Singapore in 1973 when he beat Glen Watson by a single pin in the title match.

Another American bites the dust as John Szczerbinski, tournament leader for so long, lost five of his round robin matches and slumped to fifth place.

But one player from each zone in the final as Boboy Rivera from the Philippines slid neatly into third place by winning six games.

Previous front runners Grabowski and Sandbaekken both slumped during the round robin and finished seventh and eighth respectively.

It is Gye Min-Young with a 100 per cent record of being top of the leader board as she goes into the stepladder final on

Saturday as the number one seed, winning six of her eight games in the round robin.

Gye will be joined by Fiona Banks of England, runner-up to Lynda Barnes in Slovenia in 2005, and Aumi Guerra of the Dominica Republic in third place.

It was a great disappointment for Malaysia’s Wendy Chai, well up among the leaders through the rounds, now she lost seven of her eight games and finished bottom of the round robin table. She was hoping to improve on her third place finish in 2005 behind Fiona Banks.

Another sorry bunny must be Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, hoping to post yet another victory for the United States, finishing 60 points off third place and a stand on the podium.
