Cam's team had a strong start finishing in first place after the first three days, but lost 0-4 to Raon team on the fourth day, reducing their chances to win the championship, since they could have lost by score differences if they ended up tying with the first place team with seven points.

Shinhan Investment team's top rival team competing for the championship, Raon, unexpectedly lost 1-4 to SK rent-a-car team on the last day of the competition.

The team finished its sixth and last round with a 3-3 draw against a third ranked rival team, Heroes, which helped Cam's team to scoop the first place with eight points, winning a cash prize of around $85,000 and boosting him to third place afterward in the PBA's world rankings.

The Phoenix team also got eight points but was pipped at the post by a lower score difference. Cam had also attended the PBA Opening Tour SK rent-a-car Championship in July, also in South Korea, finishing fourth to win $8,400.

He had won the one-cushion carom trophy at the 2019 Asian Carom Billiards Championship in HCMC by beating South Korean's Seo Hyun-min 100-51.
