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.

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.
