Matt Krah followed up his victory on the Planet Pool Tour the week prior with another W at the Mezz Pro-Am Tour’s July 24 stop, besting Brett Stottlemyer in a hill-hill final match.

Krah dominated the top half of the bracket, notching wins over Lou P. 7-5, Rob Vannatta 7-4, Sean Morgan 7-5, and Josh Brothers 7-3. Leading the bottom half of the bracket was Joey Testa, who had wins over Max Much 7-1, Wali Muhammad 7-3, and Jose Burgos 7-1. In the following hot seat match, Krah and Testa collided, and Krah escaped with a double-hill victory.

Stottlemyer awaited Testa on the one-loss side after relegating Burgos to fourth place. Testa fared little better and went home with third as Stottlemyer easily handled him 7-2. In the finals, Stottlemyer had to best Krah twice for the title. The first and only set went hill-hill, but in the end the day belonged to Krah, who came away with the 7-6 win.
