Group B started with a marathon match between two defensive minded players, Jamie Felton and Serogo Tabuni, which Jamie won eventually in the fifth. John Duncalfe was in fine fettle, attacking at every opportunity, but in the end (after 24 games in the group!) Bertie Anstis and Serogo Tabuni progressed.
Group C featured John Talbot, Dom Juiwong, Damon So and Richard Anstis. The group was comfortably won by Dom, and John T won second, so also progressed.
