Rick also picked up the $25 tournament high run prize with a break of 63 in his second round match against Shawn Fequet. Semi-finalists were Jacques Cote and Billy Martin, who each lost 4-3 to Leon and Boone respectively. Leon has now qualified for the Canadian Snooker Championships coming up next spring in Toronto.
