The finals came down to Daniel Maize, rated a “4” on a regional handicapping system used, and Jimmy Nosavan, rated “6″, – both from Des Moines, IA. Maize had remained undefeated while plowing through the latter side of the “A” bracket with wins over Greg Knight 4-2, Steve Aldrich 4-2 and Jimmy Nosavan 4-2. Before being upended in the A-side finals by Maize, Nosavan turned back in the latter stages Bruce Ribble 6-4 and Scott Hargens 6-3.
In the B-side finals, Nosavan again dispatched Hargens on the hill 6-5 before losing out in one set for the title to champion Daniel Maize.
By virtue of Daniel Maize also being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 8-Ball singles entry into the 2013 Pure X ACS Nationals at the Tropicana Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS.
