In third, winning £40 was Rosario Graziona and fourth, with £20, Tim Kent.

Carol, Catherine and Dean do a £160 chop

Nick runs hot at start of Winter Season

December 2 saw a single handed heads up with chip leader’s pocket fours  beating the contender’s A3 in an all in clash.Nick Jeffery won £65 for his efforts, Roly Holas £39 and Daryl Hitchings £26. Our bubble was Dean Ghasemi. Nick had opted to play his season’s joker in its first game so has instantly got a commanding lead through getting 50% more points than normal. We’ll see if he’s still at the top at the end of February.
