Ronan Deegan had a good 2-1 win over number 2 seed Gary Seales in their quarter final match. Dave Seales was in fine form against Robert Rogers and went through to the semi final with a 2 nil win.

Larry O'Dea won the first frame on the blue but the second went down to the black, Dan had his chances but left the black on into the center pocket which Larry potted to give him his first tour final. Ronan Deegan had a close encounter against Dave Seales but Ronan won both frames to reach his third tour final in a row. The final saw Larry take the first but Ronan came back to level at 1-1.
