Mike Barnes came from behind to emerge the winner of the Lightning event. In round 3 he was defeated by Pete Mercs but recovered to win his final 3 games, although he was lucky to win in round 5 against Graham Gibson, who missed a guaranteed draw. Graham also gave away a draw to Drag Sudar in round 1 when clearly winning.
In 2nd place was Pete Mercs who, after beating Mike, only drew with Drag before losing to Derek Padvis, but then beat Mick Harper in the final round.
Joint 3rd were Drag and Mike Naylor, who met in round 5 with Mike punishing a poor move by Drag before losing in the title decider to Mike Barnes.
Final Scores (out of 6):
4.0 Sudar, Naylor
