There was going to be no repeat of my collapse in the 2012 tournament. Last year I got 8:2 up and then managed to lose all 8 of the next 8 games and lose 8:10.
This year I got ahead just as early on in the year but Mark could not catch up . He did beat me twice and we halved one match, but that was it.
The great thing about a competition like this is that even as best friends it just makes us that bit more competitive and focused even when we are out having a “Sunday Fiver” game. There’s a picture of the “cup” in this post about the inaugural 2011 Gilroy/Taylor Tour competition. I’ll post an updated one soon.
But, for the record books, the score stand as follows :-
|2013||14½ : 2½ – Gilroy|
|2012||8:10 – Taylor|
|2011||7½ : 2½ – Gilroy|
