The twice postponed tourney finally got underway at the Wenlock PH in N1 unperturbed by the modest turnout & the moderate standard that was prevalent. Sadly with the current holder Colin Pettet + 4 other previous winners unavailable - past champions were represented by 1995/6 winner John Hill.

The round robin saw Jim Davies eliminated despite his winning more games than semi finalist qualifier Steve Lay - the rules making provision for halving matches that fail to complete within agreed specifications. Consequently the group ended up as so...

N                 P    W    D    L    Pt.
John Hill         4    3    1    0    3 1/2
Peter Hollman     4    1    2    1    2
Peter Czabotar    4    1    2    1    2
Steve Lay         4    0    3    1    1 1/2
---------------------------------------
Jim Davies        4    1    0    3    1

The subsequent semi finals both ended with 2-0 scorelines, John Hill beating Steve & Pete C beating Pete H. The final between John & Pete C has as yet to be arranged.
