Congratulations to Anthony Ker, who defeated his only rival on Thursday, and won the championship with a margin of one and a half points!
Thanks to everyone who took part over all 3 groups, despite all the disruption caused by 2 changes of venue, and a change of club night, there was some very interesting chess being played. Let me know if you would like a copy of the final PGN file with all the games included (maybe for a small donation to chess club coffers).

Here are the games that were played on Thursday, the decisive Ker vs Dive game, and the short game between Andrew Stone and Peter Stoeveken. Somehow the ending of Ker v Dive looks very wrong, so if anyone could provide a correction I would be grateful!
