Lee managed nine pin and spared, then made a seemingly perfect shot only to see pin 7 and 10 standing but a messenger came by to take out pin 7 to the relieve of Lee and all his supporters. He kept his composure to spare the single pin to seal victory.
Lee also edged another Hong Kong national, Ivan Ise 279-262 in the second semi-final match to reach the final while Lau ousted his compatriot, Jimmy Cheung 268-233 in the other all-Hong Kong second semi to face Lee in the final.
The champion also registered the highest game of the leg when he trashed James Lui of Hong Kong, 289-201 in the opening round and another Hong Kong national, Tony Wong, 257-214 in the second round.
Lee was awarded his fourth tour trophy and a cash prize of US$500 while Lau settled for US$300. Tse and Chueng picked up US$150 each as second and third runners-up. Mr Chao Kuok Wai, Head of Sports Development Department, Sports Bureau of Macao SAR Government presented the prizes.
