2017 Championships - Who Won What

Grand Prix Championship 2017

Ever since John Slattery won two consecutive titles in 2003 and 2004 he's held the record on his own - until now. Brian Lever maintained his lead over his nearest rival, Robert Perry to win the title for a second year running. It was Brian's winning streak at the November UK Finals that helped him to increase his lead and I'm sure he'll be looking for three in a row next year.

Brian is the longest-standing active Biba member having joined in the very first week of its formation. He's taken home 14 winner's trophies over the years, including 6 Mains (the UK Finals 2017 being his latest). Robert Perry, Runner-up, is a newcomer to the Grand Prix stats despite his 1 Main and 3 Consolation titles. Perhaps next year, Robert?

Finally: Overall it's been a good year with an increase of 9.5% in entrants over last year and a new record of 322 players taking part from a range of tournaments. Thank you to all that participated and I look forward to a good turnout for 2018.

IMPORTANT STUFF: After discussions with a few players and after reading some of your emails it has been decided to include the Friday Warm-up in the GP awards as a seperate event thus giving entrants two scores over the weekend. This was decided upon in order that Biba entrants were able to get in six 'events' during the season.

Grand Prix Championship after the Bright 'n' Breezy, January 2018

Early days .... not a lot to say .... once we get a few more events in things'll take shape.

Grand Prix Championship after The Lakes and British Open

Coming in to the Top 8: Paul Christmas, Lawrence Powell, Graham Read, Peter Christmas, Andy Darby, Crispin Duke and Neil Foston.

Dropping out: Jon Barnes, Nicky Check, Stephen Carder, Walter Busato, Radu Ciortan, Eric McAlpine, John Hurst.

Staying in: Uli Koch.

So, a few changes, then? More will follow the Manchester One-Day and Blackpool.

Grand Prix Championship after The Manchester One-Day and the Imperial Cup - Blackpool

Paul Christmas drops down from 1 to 9 as Jon Barnes storms into the #1 slot. Graham Read knocks Lawerence Powell into 3rd and Martin Barkwill edges above Andy Darby. Eric McAlpine, Paul Barwick and Radu Ciortan move up and Uli Koch, Peter Christmas, Crispin Duke and Neil Foston drop out.

Following the cancellation of the English Open the next event is July's Liverpool Open from which I'm expecting even more changes.

NB: The scores from Manchester are based upon the top 8 in the Main, Consolation and Last Chance. The scores from Blackpool are based upon the Swiss plus the higher scores from the Imperial Cup or the Fylde trophy.

Grand Prix Championship after Manchester, Blackpool, and Liverpool

Coming into the Top 8: Jon Barnes, Paul Barwick, Martin Barkwill, Eric McAlpine, Radu Ciortan, Brian Lever. Paul Barwick rises to 2. Lawrence Powell drops from 2 to 8 and Graham Read remains at 4.

Paul Christmas, Uli Koch, Peter Christmas, Andy Darby, Crispin Duke, and Neil Foston have all dropped out of the Top 8.

So, a few changes, then? More will follow the Sussex Cup and the Irish Open.

Grand Prix Championship after Sussex Cup - Bognor

Minor changes; everyone remains static except Brian Lever and Lawrence Powell who drop to 8th and 9th as Robert Perry moves up to 7th.

No doubt there will be greater movement after the Irish Open in November - and final movement at the UK Finals a little after that.

The Ranking Championship ended in 2014 when Biba downsized to four events a year. With just three that qualified it was felt no longer viable to continue.
