The Challengers' League was held again at ISH in London over the bank holiday weekend, but this time it started a day later, on the Saturday, and ran to the Tuesday. Eight of the top players from the Candidates' Tournament, who were both available and managed to confirm their attendance, took part under the watchful eye of Jenny Radcliffe.
Reigning British Champion Andrew Kay won all his seven games to win the League. Alex Kent won five games, losing to Andrew and also to Harry Fearnley, to become the other player in the forthcoming title match. Third were Des Cann and Boris Mitrovic with 4 wins, fifth were Harry Fearnley and Alistair Wall with 3, Alex Rix was seventh with 2 and Kiyohiko Tanaka was eighth.
