Well done to Trevor on the win, he was simply awesome all weekend.
Great tournament as always, thanks to Graeme Le Monnier, Sean Le Bauvant and helpers for organising a terrific weekend.

i think the ommaroo do a fantastic job as hosts as well. food ( breakfast, snack menu and meal of the day etc) were all spot on I allways thought the only thing missing from jersey was the entertainment (like in bournemouth) now jersey has better...loved it
Okay, here's a bit more (last 16 onwards) to whet the appetite until the organisers put up the full transcript of the competition.

Well done to Guernsey for having spawned a worthy World Champion on the 'rival' Channel Island. Well done to Jim who though fighting a lost cause once Gallienne had touched up in the second game, still provided the spectators with some entertainment in the form of playing out time with an exceptionally rapid break. Well done to Surrey's Gary Powell for making the Semi-Finals, a surprise to many but not to me. And more 'well dones' to Sue Mariner and the still-only-22 y.o. BB Reaper for making it to the last 8 stage.
Thanks once again Jersey for staging such a wonderful event.
