COLIN XI The Hangover- the results

Post by Ben Wilson » Sun Jan 25, 2015 4:04 pm

I'm back from South Hykeham where 31 anagram enthusiasts have just competed for the second title of the weekend, and here's how it all went down...

The seedings were arranged according to the finishes from the COLIN XI (with any new players slotted in according to their predicted strength). and by happy coincidence, this meant that the two people to win the overachiever prizes (there was originally only going to be one, but they tied for the prize) were the two undefeated players who didn't make the final: JAMIE MCNEILL and ZARTE SIEMPRE.

Max game badges were also awarded at the hangover. I can't remember exactly who got them as I lost my notebook clearing everything up before heading home, but I do know they included at the very least KIRK BEVINS (who is now 27 for 27 top 10 finishes at co-events), INNIS CARSON, JAMIE MCNEILL, ZARTE SIEMPRE and the two finalists. More on them in a bit...

In addition to the solo awards, a team award was up for grabs at the hangover. Everybody was randomly divided into two teams before the day started, and any games between players on opposing teams counted toward the team's total, and everyone on the winning team at the end of the day went home with a special award. 31 inter-team games were played, and winners- by 16-15 (after having to come back from 1-6 down) were the WHITE TEAM, who consisted of LUCY WESTWOOD, STEWART GORDON, ALAN YOUNG, ADAM DEXTER, PAUL WORSLEY, JAMES LAVERTY, JON CORBY, LAUREN HAMER, JEN STEADMAN, JON O'NEILL, JAMES ROBINSON, KIRK BEVINS, GILES HUTCHINGS, JAMIE MCNEILL and the two finalists, who I'll come to now...

Finishing as runner-up in the hangover for the second consecutive year was JACK WORSLEY, narrowly missing out on the conundrum in a double max game against the winner...

CONOR TRAVERS! the 2008 COLIN champion (as well as the holder of a few other prestigious Countdown-related titles) stormed through the opposition, the final being his third max game of the day. In addition to the title, Conor also set a new record for the highest score ever achieved at COLIN, scoring a whopping 92 points against Gevin in round 1 (yet another max game), and finishing the heats with an average score of 75.5 per game. This would've means an octototal of 604 in the old 9-round format- a phenomenal achievement by anyone's standards.

Here are the full results. Hope to see you all for COLIN XII in 2016!

Well, there's quite an unusual feat - I finished in exactly the same tied position (equal 9th) at both COLIN XI and The Hangover.
