For the third week of the Smash Bowl, the ruleset used was Phone-A-Friend. And so the player count doubled up for the event making it a 2v2 single-elimination bracket.

- Enrique Hernández "Maister" Solís & Arturo "Joker" Ochoa
- Eric "Mr. E" Weber & Salvatore "Zomba" DeSena
- Alexis "Mr. G" Stennett & Lucas "Chase" Ray
- Brett "8BitMan" Esposito & Rylan "ChunkyKong" Silva
On the mic were once again Zak "Coney" Zeeks, Phil "EE" Visu, and Terrence "TKbreezy" Kershaw. doubles provided some excellent highlights of team combos that are rarely seen. As well as some amazing 2v1 situations.
After a comfy two hours of play. The projected winner of the event, Maister, secured himself a captain role for Stage two. Round one came close as Maiser and Joker got a 3-2 victory over 8bitman and ChunkyKong. They would then face Goblin and Chase and quickly dispatch them to lead a 3-0 victory. In a second for the competition. The losers of the winners' finals did not go on to be the final runner-ups of the weekend. Goblin and Chase instead lost to their first round opponents Mr. E and Zomba.
