Our South West regional final was hosted by the Grosvenor in Plymouth which saw another increase in player numbers. This, however, didn’t stop the region’s dominant force, the Chaddlewood Inn, on cleaning up by winning both major awards again.

Their first was the team event which was won by their Wednesday gang. Congratulations to Lesley Watt, Mark Haslam, Damien Wood & Steve Hosking.

The Brendan Arms in Bude and the White Hart in Holsworth also had a good showing with 2 finalists each.

With the two final table big stacks representing the day’s team event winners, they were big favourites to claim the double. Chip leader Steve Hosking hit the heads-up match against the Brunel Inn’s Nigel Parsons. The day’s winner was uncovered as Hosking held 8-6 to Parson’s A-2. The final board was perfect for Steve as it ran off 9-5-9-8-9 to crown him the latest South West regional final champion.
