Letchworth advanced weekend, 5-6 August 2017

Nick Mounfield won the Letchworth advanced weekend, beating all the other 8 players. He also completed his first sextuple peel.

The best game was Lines v Lines. Ian and Debbie were both 1 and 4-back when Debbie got a break. Unable to set up a standard TP, she instead went for a standard TPO. (This tactic was briefly in vogue in the early '90s.) Two balls were pegged out. Ian proved better at gaining position, and despite there being just one roquet in the endgame, Ian won by 2.

Best of the rest was the improving David Marsh. He had 2 TPs, including a 6th turn effort v Ian Lines.

1st Nick Mounfield 8/8
2nd Ian Lines 6/8
3rd David Marsh 5/7
