The final round of the Summer 2012 Tournament

Concentration at the Summer tournament

The fight was on for winner of the overall tournment. Early in the Summer David Seaby looked like he had a unassailable lead. Matthew Chapman caught-up and to his credit - had he not played the last game would have shared first place, he played and drew against Robert Lavery. Its was therefore for Pat Coleman to become overall winner by beating Sam Flanagan. Pat was undeafed during the competition - a very good thing to achieve in such a strong group.
