Blackburn went through the field unchallenged, besting Albert Otto in the winners’ side final four 7-4 to reach the hot seat. His opponent there was Jeff Abernathy, who had just sent Melvin Shelton to the one-loss side 10-4. Their match went double-hill, but in the end it was Blackburn who escaped with the 7-9 win.

An easy 10-2 defeat of Brian Bryant sent Hall through to the next round, where he ousted Shelton in fifth place by the same score of 10-2. Brent Hensley tied with Shelton after Otto won their match 6-7. In the quarterfinal match, Hall whitewashed Otto 10-0.

Abernathy was waiting for Hall in the semifinal match, but he could not stand up to the force and fell 10-7. In the double-elimination final match, Hall won the first set over Blackburn 10-2 and then surged ahead in the second set to win the match and title 10-5.
