The first time Ussery and Davis met was in the hot seat match, after Ussery had sent Ty Bissett to the one-loss side 8-2 and Davis defeated Chris Turner 8-5. Their meeting turned out to be a lopsided match that saw Ussery head west after an 8-1 routing by Davis.

Charlene and Mike Harvey were relegated to a seventh-place tie after being ousted by Tony Morrison and Arnold Hamlet, respectively, both 8-3. Hamlet in turn was sent home in fifth place by Chris Turner 8-6, while Bissett tied with Turner after an 8-5 loss to Morrison.

But Ussery was determined to wreak revenge on Davis for his hot seat loss and turned Morrison away 8-3. It was an epic struggle in the finals, but eventually it was Ussery who eked out the 11-10 victory.
