Things looked to be quite promising when Peter Barabas did not appear.
Ray and Mick were first to finish with Ray losing out. Drew versus Ben were next - this was very sharp stuff and could have gone either way. Graham U versus Stan was also very close, with Stan taking the point. John managed our only win as Andy played down to a lone king and certain death.
