ONE of the biggest scrabble tournaments in the world came to Coventry last week as challengers from all over the globe competed for Europe's top prize.

Over 60 players, including World Champion Nigel Richards, took part in the UK Open tournament which was being held for the fifth consecutive year at the Quality Hotel in Birmingham Road.

A total of 56 matches took place from January 3-8, 18 in the warm up and 38 during the main event, and a special prize-giving ceremony was held on the final day of the event.

Richards continued his impressive form on the circuit after being crowned champion and winning £3,000 in prize money, with Phil Robertshaw finishing second and Weibin Toh came third.
