The one official LIBRIUM team and two impromptu teams from The Three Crowns in Stone were just too much for the teams from Stone's Royal Exchange and The Sun in Stafford.
Ian Hare and Steve Haimes came out victors securing the Team Challenge Trophy for The Three Crowns after a nail biting 4 games with 5 teams followed by a deciding match.
A warm up game using the new DGT Timer was enough to sharpen the skills needed to win a game of LIBRIUM with 15 seconds set for each move, but both the official Three Crowns team and the pairing of Carl Howe and Elliot Plant representing The Royal Exchange ended the normal rounds on 4.5 points, so a deciding match was fought... with Carl dropping the cards after a sterling effort in an attempt to retain the trophy for the Exchange.
Well done the Three Crowns!
