The players mean business as the seasoned participants wasted no time dispatch their opponents to increase their chances of making it to the final table on the night. The usual count down to the final table was as quick as having a very cold Mokaii Cult Shaker. Thirty-Two (32) turned to the magic number four (4) – The lucky four as the crowd has baptized the final table, in a firm whip from the strong.
The final four table proved to be a family affair by luck of draw. Brothers Thaddeus Gaston and Pius Gaston vs Dave Charlery and Sarah Joseph. Immediately, the brothers fiercely grabbed the first series 6-4 leaving Dave and Sarah to quickly revise their game plan for the second series. Whatever they did worked like magic as Dave and Sarah angrily avenged their loss with a stunning 6-0 sweep to own the second series. The sweep in the second series lit a fire under the brothers chair as they bravely and patiently outplayed Dave and Sarah with a 6-3 win to be the first ever pair of brothers to qualify for the grand finals together (6-4,0-6, 6-3). Qualifying winners Pius Gaston and Thaddeus Gaston each received $50.00 as well as Black&White giveaways on the Night.

The final was a battle of the sexes as well as experience vs Youth. Marcus Martelly & Simon Joseph versus Kina Mathurin & Sarah Joseph.
