The star of the show and winner of the event Justin Hewitt managed to win the tournament in remarkable fashion. The underdog managed to take out Jerome Duarte in a thrilling match up. This was anyone’s match, but it was Justin who managed to hold his nerve for a win over Jerome, who managed to score heavily during this game including a 180. Justin clinched wins over Jayc Alecio and Ethan Cleverly. Justin also managed to hit a 180 followed by a 131 finish in the second leg over Ethan Cleverly.
Sean King Negrette enjoyed his best ranking run with wins over Joseph Borge, Ethan Smith and Kaylan Franco. Kaylan caused the biggest upset by defeating Craig Galliano who recently enjoyed a good run earlier this month at the World Masters. Nevertheless Sean managed to beat Kaylan in the semis to eventually book his place in his first final.
