Ra Hanna went to the hot seat after some early close matches and sent Dave Shlemperis to the loser side in the hot seat match.
Meanwhile, on the loser’s side, Tri Chau was on his way to winning 5 matches in a row for a shot at the title.
In the semifinal, Shlemperis took a commanding 4-1 lead until Chau comes back winning the next 5 racks finishing with the last 2 racks making the 9 on the break.
Ironically, in the finals against Hanna, Chau took a 5-2 lead till Hanna wins the next 4 racks ending it with a 9 on the break.
