Zion Zvi, Frankie Hernandez, Ramon Mistica, Daniel Dagotdot, and Noel Bensurto

The Mezz Pro-am Tour made its way to Raxx Bar & Grill in West Hempstead NY on July 10, 2011 where a strong field of 34 players came out to compete, including such notables as Matt Krah, Joey Testa, Zion Zvi, Frankie Hernandez, Daniel Dagotdot, Noel Bensurto, Oscar Bonilla, Michael Wong and Ramon Mistica.

Leading the top half of the bracket was Dan Dagotdot with wins over Larry Ross 7-1, Barry Banks 7-6, Frankie Hernandez 7-4, and Ramon Mistica 7-6 .  Leading the bottom half of the bracket was Zion Zvi with wins over Samantha Miskevich 7-0, Tony Tjioe 7-3, Bob Madara 7-3, and Oscar Bonilla 7-3.  

Playing for the hot seat was Daniel Dagotdot vs Zion Zvi. This was a one sided match with Zion Zvi taking control of the match from the start and winning easily 7-2, sending Daniel Dagotdot to the one loss side.  Waiting for Daniel Dagotdot on the one loss side was Frankie Hernandez;  this too was a one sided match,  this time it was Frankie Hernandez taking control from the start and never looked back winning by a score of 7-2 to get to the finals.

In the finals it was Frankie Hernandez vs Zion Zvi, Hernandez had to beat Zvi twice in order to win the event.  This first set it was Frankie Hernandez winning 7-4, the second set was a great match that went hill hill with Zion Zvi winning 7-6.
