Sep 1, 2011, 1:11 PM

Sigel was untouchable in his first seven 100-point matches.
At the Dragon Promotions World Tournament of 14.1, Mike Sigel showed that he can still walk the walk. In the event's opening round-robin phase, the Hall of Famer went undefeated through seven 100-point matches. Not only that, Sigel shut out reigning champ Oliver Ortmann, 100-0.

But Captain Hook wasn't the only player to emerge from the opening phase unscathed. Thorsten Hohmann, Rodney Morris and Charlie WIlliams also went undefeated through the round-robin stage, where the 64-player field was divided into eight groups of eight, with the top four from each flight advancing to the 32-player knockout round.

A majority of the favorites including Johnny Archer, Mika Immonen and Stephan Cohen advanced easily. In addition, legends like Ray Martin and Allen Hopkins also impressed as they booked spots in the knockout bracket.

Single-elimination play, which will run through the championship on Friday, will consist of 200-point matches.
