Hofstätter was undefeated throughout the event. In the final she beat Shu-Han Chang (Taiwan) 7-3 to earn the $12,700 first-place cheque. Chang received $7,800 for second.
The semifinals saw the Austrian defeat Karen Corr (Ireland) 7-4 while Chang edged Xiaoting Pan (China) 7-5.
This was Hofstätter's 12th (?) Classic Tour title but her first since the 2000 BCA Open 9-Ball Championship. She has also won the 1995 World Championship and has numerous European titles.
It was the second Tour victory in a row for Austria, as Jasmin Ouschan won the season-ending WPBA Championship.
Defending champion Monica Webb (USA) finished tied ninth after losing 9-3 to Hofstätter.
The event took place from March 10-14 2010 at the Viejas Casino, Alpine, California, USA. It was the first of two(!) events this season on the Classic Tour.
