Barry, the competition format was four all-play-all sections whose winners entered a knockout stage. The semi-finals and finals were decided by two games for each match. John Nunn defeated Mike Healey in one semi-final while Gavin Wall beat Russell Granat in the other. Nunn won the final 2-0 although he looked to be in trouble in the following game before recovering to demonstrate his superior skill in rook and pawn endings.

What you needed John was a Giant Bishop! :D

Thanks for pointing that out, Clive.

I think of that bishop of mine more as a redundant verger - let that be a lesson to me.
