    • Barry Sutton (£6, to be awarded).

Particularly memorable was:

  • Andy's controversial FIDE Law 10.2 draw claim in round 3, which was awarded.
  • Colum's mad time scramble vs Mark in round 4, finishing in a draw by 3-fold repetition, just after Mark's flag had fallen first! To be fair, Mark had just arrived back from abroad and started late with just 10 minutes on the old Fulham clock.
  • The final round 2nd place deciding game between Andy and Colum, which was a tricky game.

The following are the standings after the last round:
