 It will be noticed that in spite of the number of unexpected results throughout the week, the accelerated Swiss pairing sytem used has brought the top 2 players to the top in the final round  - clear 1st and clear 2nd.

As is usual in the circumstances, there was a multiplicity of short draws as players sought to make an early start home. The exception being those still with a chance of getting into the prizelist. Of these, Raymond Gamble and Ivor Annetts got the sharp wins that were rewarded. The “Juniors” was even tighter than usual with just a single point separating 7 of the 10 players. Arguably, the outstanding performance was that of Dave Rogers (149), who played the 4 top-graded opponents and drew with them all.

The final prizelist was as follows:-
