Tod Wood is Season 16 Champion; Nic Rawlings Wins Season 16 Week 6, Amy Coshan 2nd, Brian Yates 3rd

BCPC Season 16, Game 6 – Friday 14 October 2016

A strong run from Tod saw him top of the league going into the final game, with only Simon Smith who could catch him. Simon would need to win and Tod not finish 4th or higher. Of course there were other considerations as well with the top 8 winning a seat.

League table at the start of the night:

Position Name Pts
1 Tod Wood 43
2 Simon Smith 31
3 Amy Coshan 23
4 Matt Godwin 22
5 Adam Smith 21
6 Steve Healey 20
7 Brian Yates 18
8 Chris Baker 18
9 Charles Mason 17
10 Matt Kay 15

On the night

Tony T was in good WIll Kassouf form – a lot of table talk and a couple of clocks called :). I liked Adam Phelan’s comment: “World champion? More like world chumpion.”

Tod looked over at the break to see Simon lowish in chips, and indeed he was gone an hour or so later in 14th, meaning Tod had won the league for the second time – yay!

Charles Mason’s 5th place gave him an additional 5 points which was enough to take him above Adam Smith and Chris Baker into 8th place.Steve Healey’s 6th place was good enough to keep him in the seats – finishing 6th overall.

Matt Godwin’s 4th place on the night catapulted him up to 4th overall. Brian Yates’s 3rd was good enough to see him rise to 5th in the overall standings. And Amy’s second saw her pip Simon for overall second place.

Nic Rawlings popped his cherry with his first league victory – and this was good enough to capture 7th overall. Congratulations, my good man!

So the points scorers on the night were:

Position Name Usual Points Actual Points
1 Nic Rawlings 15 15
2 Amy Coshan 12 9
3 Brian Yates 10 10
4 Matt Godwin 8 8
5 Charles Mason 6 5
6 Tony Trippier 5 5
7 Steve Healey 4 4
8 Chris Baker 3 3
9 Laura Rhoden 2 2
10 Tod Wood 1 0

And the final table looks like this:

Position Name Pts Seat
1 Tod Wood 43 £500 + £200
2 Amy Coshan 32 £500
3 Simon Smith 31 £400
4 Matt Godwin 30 £400

6 Steve Healey 24 £200
7 Nic Rawlings 23 £150
