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.

We should also thank Robin Haldane who recorded the moves in the final games.

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.
