While Dagotdot fought his way through the one-loss side of the chart, Fliz went undeterred through the right side, defeating George Osipovitch 6-4 to reach the hot seat match. Her opponent was Wilson Cruz, who had just defeated Wilfredo Albray 7-3. The hot seat match was as close as possible, going double-hill before Fliz edged out Cruz 9-8.

After eliminating Ed Culhane 7-6, Dagotdot went on to face down Scott Simonetti 7-1. In his next round he faced off against Albay, who was fresh from his winners’ side defeat by Cruz. He sent Albay home with a 7-5 victory to move on to the quarterfinals against Ron Mason. Another tight match ensued, but Dagotdot pressed on for a 9-7 win. It was touch and go again for him in the semifinals against Cruz, as Dagotdot squeaked past him 7-6. In the finals, though, he kept a bigger margin of safety around him as he defeated Fliz 11-5 for the title.
