The first player to reach the last 8 is Barlow Boy with a very close and high scoring victory against Big Jon.
He can now sit in his rocking chair with a bottle of Brandy and box of Cuban Cigars and watch the rest of us battle it out.

Big Jon "£172.50" loses to Barlow Boy "£178.75"

With a deficit of only £6.25 Big Jon must surely be in with a chance of the best losers play off for the final last 8 spot, watch this space,

Thanks for the update SW, I don’t drink whiskey and have never smoked, but I’ll have a can of lager or two to celebrate.

Good luck to Big Jon in the play offs comp.

Cheffy,
You need to bet on all four matches as per rules and not three.
And as you've done avoid any bets identical to Brighouse White at the same time.
