Afternoon session : Finals decided as Millie survives Jazz comeback

After the final round of pool matches the playoff positions are decided, with the finals being Millie Tomlinson v Georgina Kennedy and George Parker v Patrick Rooney.

All four won their Pools with three straight wins, and all four Pools finished with clear 1/2/3/4 positions, no countback needed!

Women’s top seed Tomlinson fended off a comeback from Jasmine Hutton to win in five, while Kennedy, seeded four in her pool, has yet to drop a game.

Parker and Rooney have been impressive in their progress to the men’s final, and with just ten places between them in the world rankings (42 v 52) a close final is in prospect.

Morning Session : Gina on a roll as pool deciders approach …

Gina Kennedy continued her impressive form, a straight-game win over Lucy Turmel putting her in pole position in women’s Pool A, but Turmel and Julianne Courtice are still in contention. In Pool A Millie Tomlinson and Jasmine Hutton notched up their second wins to set up a pool decider later today.

In the men’s pools top seeds George Parker and Patrick Rooney both recorded their second wins, Parker faces Richie Fallows in a Pool A decider while Rooney, Ben Coleman and Charlie Lee could still win Pool B.
