The held over final of December's tournament gets well under way. Blaine Buchanan was a narrow victor over Rosey Bensley, and was later presented with the John Chidgey Cup, as well as the tournament winner's prize of over 400, and a small cash prize for finishing 3rd in the Open Grand Prix.
Stuart Mann (right) kicks off his 2002 Premier League campaign with a victory over Charlie Hetherington. Charlie was runner-up in 2000, Stuart emulating that achievement last year.
