A very high standard of potting in this headed by Gordon Dong with 590 points from 7 x 21 minute frames including 117 in one frame. In the afternoon re-draw he also had the highest score of 477 followed by Lee Rudolph with 463. Rudolph was in front by 24 points going into the last round and looking like winning the event but Carlson failed to hit the yellow in his last round game against Dong who got 20 points before the bell went.
Also a time frame tournament, player of the day would have to go to Junior, Pravil Kant who played some impressive snooker end up with 4 wins in section play then beat Ashwin Kumar in the Quarter-finals 2/1, Cliff Keach in the semi-finals 2/1. Unfortunately in the final he had a rush of blood in the final frame losing to Evan Carlson who had beaten Lee Rudolph 2/0 in the other semi-final.
