In the deciding match Caudron edged Turkey's Semih Sayginer 40-39 after having been 39-29 down. He also survived five matchpoints.
Because of the unique format of the event Caudron would have had to beat Daniel Sanchez (Spain) if he had lost loss to Sayginer. Sanchez now had to be content with the runner-up position. Sayginer took third.
Caudron received $12,000 for the win. Sanchez earned $9,600 and Sayginer $8,000.
Sayginer's 16 was the highest run of the event. Torbjörn Blomdahl had the best single game average of 3,500.
The event was played August 13-19 in Carom Café Billiards, New York, USA. A total of 84 players took part.
