The second seed established his on lane mastery of the short oil pattern by scorching the lanes against 9th seed Joey Miranda III 221-181 in the semi-final before dismantling top seed Bruce Calip in the monthly finale 266-203. Calip ousted 6th seed Brian Manibusan in the semi-final round sneaking past the lower seed with a 217-211 set.
