Ian Volante Previous two rounds too :(

Samir Pilica

Samir Pilica Don't understand this. Why were all Liam's game ruled out ? His vocabulary is immense. Surely, no need to cheat.

Ian Birdman

Ian Birdman Why the fact he was cheatimg is why his vocabulary seemed immense samir! Fair play to amie for winning one...true champion in my eyes (with honourable mentions to the others liam cheated on the way)

Ian Birdman

Ian Birdman Maybe the fact he was cheating...i think its fair to say i could do with some kind of cheat detector to help my typing ability!

Phil Collinge

Phil Collinge I elected not to comment publicly until I had contacted all interested parties, as disqualifying someone who has just won a title is a big call to make, and one from which there is no going back.

Discussions have taken place and this process is now complete.

Whilst I did receive correspondence from Liam on 1st May he made no appeal against the disqualifications. However, in the interests of fairness, representations have been made on his behalf.

It can now be confirmed that all four of Liam's matches in this tournament have been disqualified, there will be no reversal, and all four results are now deemed void.

Furthermore, Liam will not be welcome to enter any subsequent tournament that I may organise.

The four players affected by his conduct have been invited to rejoin the tournament, and have all now accepted.

Ian Birdman

Ian Birdman Immensely disappointing. But where one door shuts (goodbye), another hopefully opens....good luck to those left in!!

Elliott Mellor

Elliott Mellor I myself was very surprised to see this as I've played Liam many times before and would never have suspected him. I'm very glad that it's been found, and that the people he cheated against are being given a chance to have a fair crack at winning. Good luck to Norm, Tim, John and Amie, you're all immensely talented players and didn't deserve to be wrongfully ousted.

Tim Down

Tim Down To be honest, I played like a pile of old plops against him and he would have had no need to cheat so it's a bit of a lucky break for me.
