White wins                                  5   8   8   9      30
Black wins                                  14  11  11  10     46

For the second year running, we note that Black has won 60% of his games to white's 40%. It is possible that this is caused by kyu players regrading themselves less optimisticly by following the EGF rating list. It is proposed to alter the handicap slightly for next year.

  • Best %: Richard Brand on 80%
