U.K. National Championships 2007

The Second National Championships in Stratego was played in early December 2007. The events available for competition were Classic Stratego, Barrage Stratego and Ultimate Lightning Stratego. The results of the championships are below. 

U.K. National Classic Championships 2007

The 2007 Classic event went more or less according to how the rankings predicted. The only slight upset was that Matthew Ratcliffe finished above the #3 seed Cris Sargeant. Cris finished in fourth place. Right from the start the battle was going to be between the top 2 seeds of Richard and Anthony. No surpises with the crunch match being decided when these 2 players played each other. Richard won the game and thus his second U.K. National Classic Championship win. Anthony improved on his surprise 3rd place in last years event, with 2nd place this year.

Medal  Positions:

1st: Richard Ratcliffe (England)
2nd: Anthony Melbourne (England)
3rd: Matthew Ratcliffe (England)

     U.K. National Barrage Championships 2007

This was the tournament of  surprises. The odds on favourite to win was Richard Ratcliffe, but a good performance on the day gave Cris Sargeant the gold, Matthew the silver and left Richard taking the bronze. These 3 players were neck and neck all the way through the tournament and the final positions couldn't have been much closer. It was good to see such a close tournament. Cris wins gold in Barrage and takes his second gold of the year, after getting gold as part of the British World Championship winning team in Classic. Matthew takes his second successive silver in this event, after taking silver in the 2006 Barrage Championships. Richard takes the bronze after winning in 2006.
    Medal Positions:

Not surprisingly Richard Ratcliffe followed his second successive gold in the World Championships by winning his second successive gold in this event. Matthew Ratcliffe came second and Roger White took the bronze and his second tournament podium finish of 2007.
