On the Winner’s Side, Dennis Orcullo met up with Santos Sambajon, where Santos maintained a 4-0 lead, but not for long. Dennis crept back up, but Santos still led 6-3. Dennis then takes the lead at 7-6, but Santos wins the next game to make it 7-7 and breaking. After the next game bring Santos gets on the Hill at 7-7.

With a dry break and tough lay-out, Santos tried to be a hero and ends up losing! John Schmidt got to the hill first playing Vilmos Foldes at 8-4, but Vilmos won a couple games to make it 8-7…Schmidt might have been too much for Foldes and wins 9-7.

HOT SEAT MATCH!
John Schmidt vs. Dennis Orcullo
Dennis Orcullo came out feverishly winning two racks in less than 10 minutes, but when John Schmidt got to the table he took advantage. At 4-2, Dennis Orcullo put his car into the next gear going to 6-2, but with a couple innings on the 3ball, John Schmidt takes a ball-in-hand and wins the rack.
Francisco Bustamante and Oscar Dominguez were then featured on the live stream table with a large audience watching as the two battled it out. Bustamante got to the hill first 7-2, but not without Oscar winning another game bringing it to 7-4. Oscar was down on the 7ball and misses (which at first looked like a skid)! Oscar at that point concedes the match to Bustamante.
John Schmidt takes his time to warm up for Francisco Bustamante for 3rd place and $1,025!Bustamante wins the lag, but scratches on his break, but with a bad roll on the 5ball for Schmidt, Bustamante comes back to the table to clear the table. With several innings to the table and mistakes by both players, John Schmidt ties up the match at 1-1. Schmidt scratches on the bracket and Bustamante then runs the table (2-1). With Django’s fancy maneuvers around the table, he was able to take the fourth rack. Bustamante overtook Schmidt and got to Hill-2. After John was able to win his 3rd match, Bustamante played a safety. After what he may have thought was a bad hit on the 1ball, John Schmidt conceded to allow Francisco Bustamante the win.
Dennis ‘RoboCop’ Orcullo
Francisco ‘Django’ Bustamante
(One race to 11)
Francisco Bustamante comes out the gate winning the first game, but Dennis checks his 1 and raises him 5 MORE GAMES! After running 3 packs, the score was 6-1. After Dennis played a successful safety, Bustamante turns to the crowd and says, “that’s all I got!” Dennis then goes back to his regularly scheduled program and wins the game bringing the score to 7-1. Bustamante jokes with the crowd (being down 8-1), and says, “You can do it, Django!!!” As he misses the 1ball, Bustamante says more quietly, “Shit…I can’t do it.” But, lucky for him, Dennis missed the 1ball and Francisco was back at the table. Several innings on the two and hooking himself for the 4ball, Dennis gives up the table to Francisco to win the next game to bring the score to 7-2. With a little funny foot work through a couple more racks, Dennis eats his 9th meal of the match. Remember in the call pocket format, each pocket has to be called, so when Bustamante made the 4-ball in a different pocket and Dennis got up, Django jokingly said, “Where are you going?” With that, Dennis finished off the rack and put himself on the top of the hill. As Django misses the 8ball, he concedes the match, give Dennis Orcullo the win!
