Steve Crockett does it again!

1 Oct. Steve had more or less bagged his prize by Christmas amassing large scores in the early rapidplays at Leamington, Bolton & Bury. Late entrant Raven Kelly-Brown (Chorlton, GMC) might have been able to make a serious challenge if there had been more events later in the season. In total, 49 players entered two events or more and of those 7 played in three or more events.
