Orcollo was the final player to use his buy-back and crushed Mika Immonen 7-1 in the semifinals. In the finals, an overcut 3 ball by Van Boening deposited him in his chair for that game and the four following, as the Robocop picked his way through rack after rack. Up 5-0, Orcollo came up empty on the break, and after exchanging a couple of innings each, Van Boening won that rack to finally get on the board. However, it was all over when Van Boening missed the 5-ball in the next. Orcollo easily cleared the table and broke and ran the final rack. Final score: 7-2! Indeed, ‘twas an awesome win for the Robocop on his 32nd birthday!
Happy birthday and congratulations, Dennis!
