OSHANE White emerged as the second Portmore-leg champion of Supreme Ventures Limited's Domino Masters tournament, with over 200 participants expressing their intellect, endurance, and ability to comprehend the game.

The tournament, which is played in a cut-throat format, was held at Caymanas Park on Sunday, May 21.

White advanced to the finals along with Natasha Brown, Monique Cunningham, and Dwayne Brissett. White won the first six points, followed by Brown (three), Brissett (three), and Cunningham (zero), to be crowned champion.

As the winner White received $150,000, Brown got $100,000, while Brissett and Cunningham picked up $75,000 and $50,000, respectively.

"To be honest, I came here to help my family. I was overjoyed because I had been assuring them that this was mine. I won five games on my table the last time I participated but someone won six games and I didn't make the semi-finals, so this time I decided that this is mine and I was determined to grab it.

"I was knocked out in the first round but I came back in the second round and just took it for my family. It was far too easy," White told the Jamaica Observer.

Gary Peart, executive chairman of Supreme Ventures Limited, expressed satisfaction with the tournament's growth over the last few months and excitement for the national finals.

"It was fantastic; it was a fantastic tournament. The tournament is rapidly expanding. The average person does not play cut-throat but we have seen that more people are starting to play — and I believe that with a $1-million prize for the finals more domino players will certainly come out. I'd want to congratulate the winner, Oshane White, on his outstanding performance, and Supreme Ventures is overjoyed that we're making more people wealthy.

"It's incredible; this is the first time we've seen two ladies compete in a final. It's my one regret [neither winning the event]; I was blown away by the number of ladies that competed in the competition and I truly believed a lady would win, but that didn't happen," Peart said.

The top 16 people from each community will compete in the national competition to be hosted at the Chinese Benevolent Association on July 2. The ticket price for the national championship is $5,000.
