Book Prize Tournament Final Round

Book Prize Tournament organiser Peter Przybycin announces the pairings for Round 11 – the final Round. He also lists the Round 10 results. And reveals what the Book Prize is.

Hi All,

The remaining two round ten games were played this week, and the final round is about to commence.

The top three players again recorded wins, so Mike Henbury continues to hold a half point lead over Rob Sims. It’s now between just the two of them, and it hinges on the results of their round 11 games!

Unfortunately for John Kooner he’s now out of the running despite his win, as he had earlier lost against Mike (the tie break if scores are equal) in round seven.

This is the prize that will go to either Mike or Rob:
