In the tenth end, China skipper Zou Qiang drew his final stone onto the button inside two Danish counters to score one point for a 6-5 win.

Against the Netherlands, China underperformed and trailed 8-1 by the fifth end break. The Dutch squad scored two more points in the seventh end for a 10-2 lead and China conceded the match.

It was also the Netherlands’ first win at the world championship.
