Twenty-six players turned out to compete at the Tiger Florida Tour Stop #2 at Shooters Billiards in Port St. Lucie. After a long day on these tight Diamond tables, Jessica Barnes with the lead but ending up in a hill-hill final match against Asia Cy to take the win!  This day saw several surprising early knockouts as top players Michell Monk, Nicolle Cuellar, Jeannie Seaver, Crystal McCormick and Stephanie Mitchell were all out of the money.
 
?The women play a modified double elimination format. The final two from the one-loss side redraw back into the final two on the winners' bracket. The Final Board is a single elimination race to seven. Barnes and Cy made it to the Final Board undefeated. Roe Guarnero and Vanessa Seaver came from the one-loss side. Seaver lost to Barnes and Guarnero lost to Cy, leaving Barnes v. Cy in the Final match. Both women played brilliantly all day, with the lateness of the night starting to show. Finally, however, Barnes won the double-hill match and Tour Stop #2.
