A hill-hill match led to an escape by Chau from Chris Karp’s clutches in the winners’ side final four, as Palone also won his match 7-6 over Richard Ng. In yet another double-hill bout, Chau eked out a 7-6 victory over Palone to remain uncontested.

Karp quickly folded on the west side, sent home in fifth place by Jaydev Zaveri 7-3. Joining Karp was Al Cacciola, who was eliminated by Ng 7-3. Ng went on to power through Zaveri in the quarterfinal match with another 7-3 score.

Ng’s tournament was ended in the next round by Palone in another hill-hill match 7-6, as Palone was itching for another chance at Chau. However, Chau managed to hold off Palone’s advances in the final match to take the win 7-5.

Results:
1st Tri V. Chau $560
2nd Joe Palone $280
3rd Richard Ng $170
4th Jaydev Zaveri $110
5th Chris Karp
Al Cacciola
