According to PBR, After defeating Missouri Thunder and Arizona Ridge Riders in their first two games, they were now against Oklahoma Freedom. Prior to this game, Oklahoma Freedom had won one and lost one game. On the final day of the event, the first ride of both teams went to waste after their lead riders failed to capitalize on their chance. In the second round, Rafael dos Santos scored a perfect ride on Pneu-Dart’s Chief Wahoo scoring 88 points and the Gamblers the much-needed lead. For Oklahoma the story was the same and Bill Henry failed in his attempt.

In the third round brothers Adriano Salgado and Thiago Salgado appeared for Gamblers and Oklahoma. But, unfortunately, both were unsuccessful in their ride and failed to give their respective teams a score. In the fourth round, Ezekiel Mitchell scored an epic 90-point ride on Preachers Kid and helped the team score 178 points on board. This was the last successful attempt of the game with Oklahoma failing to score in its remaining rides. After winning their second against Arizona Ridge Riders by a margin of 4 points, thanks to Jose Vitor Leme’s 90-point ride and fabulous start at the first game, this was an incredible ending for the Gamblers.
