Sylver Ochoa, in the meantime, was battling through the west, in a series of matches that would put him into the semifinals against Van der Veer. From among the event’s final 12, he got by his first two matches versus Eduardo Ramirez and Jacob Warrnier, respectively, giving up only three racks in 17 games that earned him the right to face Villarreal, whom he defeated 7-2 to get into the quarterfinals. It was James Davis, Jr., after wins over Cesar Garcia and Frank Ferrer, Jr., who was waiting for Chin. Four of the seven matches among the final eight were determined with one of the players on the hill.
