Alex Jardine won the Tunbridge Wells B Level Advanced Tournament, beating Jon Diamond in the final, despite Jon winning all six of his games in the flexible Swiss.

Following four withdrawals, the field was reduced to eight which meant that the swiss format nearly became all-play-all. Excellent weather and true-running lawns made for rapid play and an early finish each evening.

Classiest game was the third-turn ball to rover and fifth-turn finish from Jon after John Hobbs got round to 4-back, with the rover peel, off the contact but failed to peg the opponent out. However, in the final, it was Alex who got both balls round before rushing onto the peg, leaving a three-ball ending. Jon refused the safety option and went for a brave 3-ball break, eventually coming to grief off oppo's ball at rover, giving an easy finish.


Final: Alex JARDINE beat Jon DIAMOND +15


Alex JARDINE 4/6
John HOBBS 3/6
Paul MILES 3/6
Rodney PARKINS 2/5
Mick BELCHAM 2/6
Philip MANN 0/6
