Eight Winner(s)

Jim Bast

The tournament director was Danny Huneycutt. The tournament referee was Jeff Soo.

The format was a double Round Robin. Each game in the First and Second Eights went to the peg (no time limit); each game in the Third Eight was to the peg on the first day, two hours and forty five minutes long on the second day, and two and a half hours on the third and fourth days; and each game in the Fourth Eight was two and a half hours long. There were no tie-breakers; a group could end in a tie.
