The third round was a double play. Lim dedicated himself into the match, beating his opponents 82-22, putting Team WP ahead at 2-1.
In the fourth match, Moh played against Noppon for the single frame. Mistakes made by both caused the points to equalise for a long time. Eventually, Moh switched to a defensive strategy to pull ahead. At this critical juncture, the table was left with blue, pink and black balls. Noppon tried to reverse the situation, but lost when Moh potted the blue and pink balls to win the fourth round with the score of 82-38. Under the heavy pressure to win back the fifth round’s single frame, Nutcharut made mistakes after mistakes to give the game away, scoring only 22 points against Lim’s 70 points, who secured Malaysia’ Team WP victory 4-1 against Thailand’s Team Hi End.
