Gambill's loss-side journey to the finals began with a 9-4 victory over Wayne Church and was followed by a double hill win over John Ailstock. This set Gambill up to face Roper, while Fox squared off against Zach Hampton, who'd defeated Brent Stembridge 9-4 and Randy Canipe 8-4, to reach him.

Gambill took the quarterfinal match 9-5 over Hampton and then defeated Musselman 9-4 in the semifinals.
