Mastermind Champion of Champions

Congratulations to Pat Gibson (Old Dog) who in August 2010 won the battle for the ultimate title, Mastermind Champion of Champions.
Sixteen past champions including Andy Page (also Old Dog) participated in the event,

In their heats Pat took 'Pixar Animated Films' and Andy answered questions on the TV series 'Arrested Development'. Both heats produced close finishes - Andy was beaten by a single point but Pat progressed to the final with fewer passes.

In the final Pat scored 16 points on 'Great Mathematicians' to trail by one point at the halway stage. Adding a further 20 on general knowledge he finished level with Jesse Honey but once again triumphed by virtue of taking no passes.
