The first meeting between Jacobsen and Schlaugh occurred in the winners’ side final four, where Schlaugh sent Jacobsen to the one-loss side 7-5 and then moved on to the hot seat match. His opponent, Jason Richko, had just bested Jose Del Rio 7-4. It was a close one, but Schlaugh edged out Richko 7-5 to remain undefeated.

After ousting Richko in the semifinals at second place, Jacobsen went on to his rematch with Schlaugh in the final match. The extended race to 14 saw a lot of play by both, but in the end, Jacobsen wreaked revenge to the tune of 14-9.
