The White Lines Cube has taken place and went okay. The reason that it didn't go too good was because only 8 players took part. E. Lamb had already made it known from weeks before that he wouldn't have been able to make it, however seven other players dropped out within 48 hours or so of the tournament. One of the notable drop outs was R. McKoy who has yet to show his face at a tournament of the new spTT. Another thing to maention is that the majority of the participants left before the tournament was over. This kind of made the finals a lot less exciting than it could have been. We encourage all the players to hang around and even join in the press conference, as only the top three players were there at the end of it all.
The first match that was played was between A. Lewis and E. Robinson. A. Lewis won in straight sets. It wasn't a very good match though because it seemed as if A. Lewis was practicing some loop shots on E. Robinson which is a disrespectful act. Folks this a very un-professional thing to do and it is strongly discouraged. Practice before a match not during it, because it shows an ultimate lack of respect for the opposing player.
The second match saw D. Phillips take on K. Lamb. D. Phillips won out against K. Lamb in three sets. It was a good performance by K. Lamb even though he didn't win. He has, however, shown that he has improved enough to take a set away from a former tournament finalist, so expect him to try even harder next time.
The third match was a walk over as S. Lewis easily took out J. Fuller, quickly and painlessly.
The fourth match saw H. Cooper take on N. Casey, both being previous champions. This was the best match of the tournament as both players put on an impressive show. H. Cooper taking the first set looked confident, however, N. Casey came back with a vengeance and only allowed two points form H. Cooper in the second. The third set saw H. Cooper prevailing, nevertheless, took take the third and deciding set.
The semifinals saw A. Lewis taking on D. Phillips  to secure the first place in the finals. D. Phillips took the first set and looked as if he was on his way to a victory. A. Lewis then stepped up his game in the second and took that set by only two. He, however, stepped up his game even some more, to take the third set convincingly.
The other semifinal saw H. Cooper taking on S. Lewis and taking him out in two sets, which was expected. S. Lewis put up a strong fight, but was later referred to as just a mere mosquito that needed to be swatted, by H. Cooper.
The finals saw H. Cooper taking on A. Lewis which was a repeat of the very first Lumber Shield finals. H. Cooper made it to be a no-contest as he used A. Lewis' weaker backhand to his advantage, attacking it as often as he could. A. Lewis did play some good shots but he couldn't hold of H. Cooper as was the case the first time.
