Rob Hall beat Martin Goodwill to take first prize in the final ABC ranking event at Nuneaton. Goodwill made it 2 finals in 2 appearances this season, narrowly making it through by 3 points in his quarter final against the unlucky Mark Hatton. Goodwill got past Chris Mitchell in his semi, with Hall beating Darren Kell. Brian Harvey had a good ton in losing to Kell, debutant Chris Wakelin played well until coming across Goodwill (scoring 539 in the hour) but Hall continued his dominance of procedures with a big win in the final, a score of 574 in an earlier round, 2 double centuries including the days highest and further increasing his rankings lead. Chris Taylor recovered from a first round defeat to the ever improving Adam Clarke to take the plate, beating Eddie Fielding in the final. Taylor squeezed past the unlucky Jim McCann in the quarters, making a 79unf to win by 7… Centuries were made by Brian Harvey (125), Rob Hall (163,208,100,208),  Mark Hatton (107), Martin Goodwill (162,165), and Darren Kell (157). An honorary mention for the hospitality from the host Atack club, especially the historic bacon buns!

Results Here, the rankings are up to date and not much changed, the Hall/Taylor top two looks assured.
