On the winners’ side Corr quickly met with Phil Stevens in the hot seat match and pounded him 9-3. On the one-loss side, control shifted after each match. In the quarterfinals Roy Morgridge and Peter Bowman clashed after each had worked up a short comeback. After the dust settled it was Morgridge who earned the right to advance. Next, Morgridge faced the incoming Stevens in a match that kept close throughout until Stevens managed to gain a quick edge for the 9-7 win.
