Whoops! Dunno how that happened.
The 7 points should be for the Faces - Pool Hall Richard.

Everything else remains the same

Results so far are very very surprising to say the least! Especially the track currently in first place! ohmy.gif

While a few others which I thought would predictably do very very well are underperforming quite spectacularly.

Voting for this rate will close on Wednesday.
