Michael Wareham

Michael Wareham was the Series 19 champion.

The headmaster of New Park, Prep school in St. Andrews, Fife in Scotland, he first appeared on 2 March 1990, beating Robert Endeacott 58 – 45. Wareham won 3 more games before falling at the hands of Sylvia Roche 55 – 34. Wareham's 4 wins were enough to earn him the #3 seed spot for the final rounds, where he beat Mark Cooper and Elaine Newcombe on his way to the final against Gino Corr. The final was neck-and-neck after the first conundrum, but three disallowed words from Corr allowed Wareham to edge ahead, running out the 92 – 68 winner and champion of Series 19.

Wareham returned in 1991 for Championship of Champions V, but lost to Lawrence Pearse in the first round.

Five years later he returned again for the Supreme Championship, but lost again in the first round, this time to Allan Saldanha. He holds the dubious honour of having achieved the lowest score in the Supreme Championship, having made only 20 points here.
