Championship of Champions II

From Countdown

Championship of Champions II ran from 31 March to 8 April 1986, and was won by Clive Freedman. The championship grand final between Freedman and Peter Evans was the first grand final in history to have been decided by a tie-break conundrum, and even today it remains one of a very few games to have featured three conundrums.
