A last round win against Jim Sherwin allowed Paul Helbig to overtake him and win both the West of England championship and the British Championship qualifying place. Patryk Krzyzanowski finished with 3 wins in a row to move from 1.5/4 to 4th= and a share of the prizes. On the other side of the coin, last round losses for Jim Sherwin and Alan Pleasants saw them slip from 1st= to 4th=.

  1. It was Andrew Smith not Alan. Still if it reaches the databases it's good for confusing GMs. There are at least 3 A Smiths with distinctly contrasting styles.
