Out of 38 entrants, Frankie Hernandez (handicapped at +4) won the tournement and took home $700.00 for his $25.00 entry fee investment. He beat Brooklyn local Dong (+2)in the finals giving Dong the seven ball. Dong took home $375.00 Two matches earlier, Dong had beaten Fong (+4), the same Fong that knocked off Corey Duell at Mohegan Sun recently. To get to the final, Frankie had beaten 18 year old Nicky Shulman(+3). Shulman, and T3 placer Pauline (7) took home $175.00 each.

Not a bad start for Platinums first tournement.
