PCA 2013: Canadian Cup runner-up Joseph Stiers wins the $5,300 heads-up

Joseph Stiers must have felt like that he needed some heads-up practice. Just a few days ago he made it to the final two in the Canada Cup against Danny Noseworthy with a four-to-one lead. He didn't manage to convert it to the win.

This time round Stiers learnt his lesson and managed to power through to victory over fellow Canadian Hagop Ketendjian.
