In the final rounds of the B-side, Tommy Hernandez (Glendale Heights, IL) [6] ended Billy Jones (Bartlett,IL) [4] run at 5th place by a 6-2 margin, where Jeff Cox (Naperville, IL) [4] joined Billy as a result of a 1-6 loss to Alan Friedrich (Fox River Grove, IL) [6]. Hernandez then eliminated Friedrich at 4th place 6-3. In the B-side finals Eddie Balderas (Palatine, IL) [5] took out Tommy Hernandez [6] 5-5. The tourney finals was all Ike Runnels [7], as he dominated Balderas [6] in the first set for a 7-2 title win!
