The final day at the 39th Annual Simonis/Aramith US Open 9-Ball Championship began with the quarter-final rounds where Shane Van Boening claimed the hot seat with a firm 11-4 statement over Greek powerhouse Nikos Ekonomopoulos. On the one-loss side Dennis Orcollo hit that absurd high gear that he has and just maintained control of the table throughout the match. It wasn't that Dechaine didn't play well, he just didn't play much and fell 11-2.
