Arthur Evans Shield - Liverpool MIMIR competition 2019

The final of this year's Liverpool MIMIR heats took place on Wednesday 6th February 2019 at Aigburth People's Hall.  16 players took part, with the top two players from each four person match progressing through the competition.

The players in the final were Mark Kerr (Victorian Cricketers), Brian Thompson (Aigburth People), Stuart Scholes (Kluggers) and Danny Grimes (Aigburth Swans).

At the end of the regulation five rounds, the scores were Mark 12, Brian 12, Stuart 10 and Danny 11.  This meant that the competition would have to be decided on a tie break, in which the tied competitors were asked the same three questions in turn, with the highest scorer winning.

At the end of the round, both Mark and Brian scored two points, meaning that a second tie break round had to be played.  In this round, Brian scored two out of three correct, but Mark answered all three questions correctly to take the title and the Arthur Evans Shield for the sixth time.

The finalists and the top three scorers from the losing semi finalists will be invited to take part in the MQL MIMIR Championship, which will take place on Wednesday 20th March 2019, with the final being contested at the MQL Presentation night on 15th May 2019 at a Wirral Venue.
