    18-year-old Mor defeated Nofar Hershkovitz in the best-of-three games final, two-games-to-none (191-180 and 200-190) to book a spot in the prestigious World Cup for the second time in her career. Mor finished tied for 28th place in Singapore 2004.

    Her 27-year-old brother, runner-up in the 41st World Cup in Ljubljana, Slovenia, last year, swept Gal Shemer, 2-0 (203-181 and 253-196), to make his third World Cup appearance (the other was in Riga, Latvia, 2002).
