British Pairs Quizzing Championships 2010

We offer our congratulations to David Edwards and Nic Paul, winners of the 2010 British Pairs Quizzing Championships. In our now traditional knock-out format they emerged triumphant from a field of 36 pairs to become the first pairing to regain the title. They did this thanks to top scoring in the final round, digging out 40% more correct answers than the highly fancied pairing of Kevin Ashman and Pat Gibson. Over the three knock-out rounds Ashman and Gibson outscored the eventual winners by two points, but could not maintain their momentum in the final round, garnering only the bronze medals behind the pairing of Jesse Honey and Sean Carey.

The KO stage was preceded by a preliminary round requiring 60 answers. The top scoring 30 pairs were then placed into six groups, with the top scoring sides kept apart (i.e. the quarter final round draw was seeded by reference to scores in the preliminary round).
