In Knock-Out tourney B, the final has just begun between David Elwood and Jean-Paul de Baene.The all-play-all final is well underway and Les Ellis has taken a commanding lead on 5/6 but there are still 16 games remaining.
There have been 63 entries for these tournaments with many players wanting to play in multiple tournaments. I thank everyone for their entries. Tournament A (domestic all-play-all) has 35 players divided into six groups. Tournament B is a six-player all-play-all. Tournament C has been divided into two KO tournaments of eight players in each.
