Pairs Competition & Presentation Night 2016 

There was a good turnout at APH for the Pairs competition and Presentation Evening on Monday 23rd May.

After a written qualifying competition, six randomly drawn pairs of players went forward into the semi-final stage.  This was played n 15 to 1 style, with each pair having three lives and being asked questions in turn until only the final three pairs remained.  These three pairs had their lives reset, and the final was played under the same rules.  You can watch the knockout stages of the competition here.

 

Trophies were presented to the teams present who were runners-up/winners in the various competitions.  Pictures can be seen on the Gallery page.

Riley Cup 2016 

After some very close quarter and semi-final matches, the final of 2016's Ted Riley cup was played between Oxton Cons of Wirral Division 1 and CTK Wanderers of Liverpool Division 2.  Oxton Cons carried a handicap of 4 points, while CTK were slightly better off with a handicap of 18.  You can watch the whole of the match below, or scroll down a bit to see the result.

By the end of round 6 the scores were very close and it looked like Oxton were on course to overhaul the deficit, but CTK won the final two rounds to take the trophy, winning 46-36.
