The first result in, before play even started, was the win awarded to Theo Slade after Dave Littlejohns was taken ill and had to retire to his room. Gostelow seemed to have decided that rather than risk suffering a long, lingering death, came out from the start with all guns blazing, but Arkell was not one to be panicked and soon had all his pieces on active squares, and his biggest problem was trying to decide which of the potentially good lines to select. He soon got the full point, to maintain his 100% score.
