Two of the fourth stage matches were straight 3-0 and two were decided with extra balls in the fifth game. Pasi Uotila knocked Petteri Salonen easily 3-0 with big figures.
Same did Dominic Barrett to Osku Palermaa. The finish of the third game was dramatia, when Palermaa missed a 3-6 spare. Converting it would have given him a victory in that game and a chance to play more.

Team mates Jari Ratia and Dennis Eklund also played five games. Ratia was leading going to the last frame. He missed a 3-6 spare and Eklund converted tenpin and took the nine pins to win by two.
