In the a-side semi-finals, Jeet Kandhai ousted Eric Hildebrand 7-7. On the other side of the bracket, Mario Morra was handing out donuts quicker than your local Tim Horton’s employee. On Mario’s route to the finals, he played perfect winning 34 consecutive games. He beat Chris Bateman 10-0, Chad Bishop 11-0, Alex Radomski 10-0 and then won the first 4 games against Jeet in the finals. Jeet Kandhai managed to pull 3 games together before Mario won the A-side finals with a 11-3. Mario looked unstoppable!
In the B-side Finals, Erik Hjorleifson eliminated Jeet with a 11-3 score. The win set up the last match of the tournament which was a repeat of the finals that occurred 4 weeks ago. This time the result was different as Erik beat Mario 9-5 for the title. Another great event with some spectacular pool put on display.
