Pretty low scoring affair with the admirable exceptional of Clapo, whose 9 points are more than double anyone elses! With 50 potential points available for the final everyone as far down as Jamee still has a nominal chance of glory, but it realistically lookes all about second with The Bunny destined for glory; Matteh's blank allowing Somers to sneak into sliver. Tight at the bottom now too, with just 3 points separarting headhunter from altoz.

With the double points on offer a few tipsters really cashed in. The Bunny's 12 is enough to close out a dominant performance & bring home the gold, Somers & Matteh both notch 16s to make up the minor medal positions. Perm gets a 10 & ohtani also bags a 16 to relagate me to 6th, about the lowest I've been. Choke, moi?! :ph34r:

Clapo completes a successful final weekend with a 12 to go with his 9 from the 3rd place play-off & finishes in 9th. Finally, at the bottom headhunter's 16 is enough to relegate altoz to the spoon.

Thanks to all who took part. :)

Unlucky mate..
You where right up there until the last few rounds.

Good effort by Headhunter too, its tough in these things if you miss the first round or so.
