Saturday would see 62 Amateur players show up for a piece of the $2680 pot. Louis Altes would prove why he is considered a high level Amateur player by going through the 62 man field undefeated to take his first KF Title. Altese had to play good as he had to play the best players on tour in every round with wins over Jason Richko 7-4, Wesley white 7-6, Mike Delawder 7-6, Dan Lettau 7-5, Jerry Troy 7-5 to put him in the winner side final to play Travis Moore who had made his way to the finals with wins over Lincoln Seiffert 7-6, Tony O Donnell 7-6, Jesse Bradley 7-5, Brian McBride 7-3 and then Glen Olson 7-4 to put him up against Altese for the hotseat. Altese would manage to squeak this one out to capture the Hotseat with a 7-6 win.

While all this was going on Dustin Morris from Minnesota was a man on a mission after taking a 2nd round loss to Brian McBride 7-2 Morris would plough his way through the one loss side with wins over Josh Lewis 5-1, Dan Dennis 5-1, Mike Delawder 5-4, Joe Scarborough 5-0, Carlos Torres 5-0, Richard Murray 5-2, Jerry Troy 5-3, Glen Olson 6-5 and a win over Travis Moore to put him in the final to play Louis Altese.

Jason Sheerman & Eddie Wheat

The hotseat match was a lopsided with Wheat coming out a 7-2 winner over Sheerman.

While all this was going on Mike Xiarhos Snr after taking a 1st round loss to Mark Wathen 7-4 would go on a rampage with wins over Louie Smith, Kevin Tennery, James Adams, Mike Delawder, Dan Dennis, Bill Stoll, Louis Altes a revenge win over Mark Wathen which was followed by one more win over Dan Whitten before losing a very close 5-4 match to Jason Sheerman to get to the final.

Sheerman was looking for revenge from his earlier 7-2 loss to Wheat, Revenge it was as he would reverse the role and take down wheat 8-2 and take his first KF Cue tour win.  With 9 ladies in attendance we paid the top 3 after a play off which Stephanie Mitchell won.

Jose Del Rio, Justin Hall, Mike Davis

Mike Davis would prove to be the man to beat on the day after he would make it all the way to the hotseat with wins over Louis Altes 7-4, Michell Monk 7-0, Justin Hall 7-0, Donnie Mills 7-2 and then a 7-2 win Over Hunter Lombardo to capture the Hotseat, Lombardo   had made his way to the winners side final with wins over Jessie Bradley 7-4, Jim Sandaler 7-4, Dave Ross 7-1, Mike Delawder 7-5 before taking his loss to Davis.

Justin Hall who had taken a bad 7-0 beating from Mike Davis earlier was in no mood on the one loss side as he would make his way back to the final with wins over Jason Richko 6-5, Jason Sheerman 6-5, Mike Delawder 6-5, Donnie Mills 6-2 and then a 6-4 win over Lombardo to set up a revenge match with Mike Davis and a chance to win his 1st KF title. The final would be a single race to 9, Hall would come out firing to take a 7-3 lead and put one hand on the trophy. Davis would now mount a come back taking the next four games to tie the match at 7-7 and just when it looked like he would take the lead to go 8-7 up trying to play a tricky positional shot the cue ball would scratch and throw the momentum back in Halls favor as he would take this and the next rack to win his first KF cue tour title by the score of 9-7.
