Williams come out of the gates strong in the final and made Richeson pay for every mistake he made to take a 6-0 lead, the next few racks were traded with Williams looking like he was going to win easy as he go to the hill 9-3, a few mistakes by Williams would see Richeson gain momentum and claw the score back to 9-7 but that would be as close as he would get as Williams ran his way through a very tricky rack to take match and his 2nd event in a row.

The final was a very cagey affair with both players trading racks, Langston would get to the hill first with an 8-5 lead but several missed opportunity's would see more claw his way back and tie the match 8-8. The final rack would see both players missing balls and just when it looked like it was all over Langston missed a tricky 8 ball and that would be it as Moore would take the match and his 2nd event in a row.
