With all scores from the previous round erased, a new set of three games was contested amongst the top 10 qualifiers.

The first knock off round witnessed Asian Intercity Senior’s Singles event champion Jim Pinaula slip by Jhun Viray 207+8 handicap and Joe Mafnas 182+17 as he banged a 227 scratch game to advance to the semi-final match against Norison Catbagan.

In the best 2 of 3 game set semi-final round, Norison Catbagan ousted Jim Pinaula in two sets 209-177 and 236-201.

The finals featured Kathy Mandapat against Norison Catbagan on lanes 17 and 18 in a best 2 of 3 games format. Catbagan outclassed the higher seed 204+5 to 157+20 in the first game. In the second game, Mandapat took an early lead on Catbagan as the later opened with a split on the second fame. However, Catbagan found his groove and began striking, first with a turkey on the third to fifth frame followed by another set of strikes to close out the game and erase the handicap deficit for the crown on a set of 181+20 to 231+5.
