In the first semi, Smith dominated proceedings against Kauste, after a big 4 in the 3rd, eventually taking it 7-4.
The second semi was a lot closer, with the MacDonald rink up 1 without hammer, after 7. With Ewan out, due to a knee injury, Dave Edwards has been skipping this weekend and John Penny has stepped in as their “super sub” (not Dave’s words)! With Van Dorp already sitting 1, it left Jaap with a straight draw to the four foot for the win, which he made.
So the final of the 2015 Edinburgh International will be:
Smith (SCO) v Van Dorp (NED)
