Countdown in Milton Keynes 2016

From Countdown

Countdown in Milton Keynes was a FOCAL tournament on Saturday 20th August 2016 at The New Queen Victoria pub in Wolverton, hosted by Series 69 contestant Zarte Siempre and Series 61 semi-finalist Innis Carson. It was attended by 46 players, making it 2016's joint most-attended event. The event was the second to be held in Milton Keynes, after 2015's Countdown in Milton Keynes, which saw a record attendance of 50 players.

It was won by James Robinson, in a repeat of the previous year's final against Dylan Taylor. Robinson had lost in 2015, but won this time on a second tiebreak conundrum - LASTTIMEH (ATHLETISM) - after both contestants matched each other for the first 8 rounds and failed to solve first conundrum OHCRUCIAL (ACHOLURIC), which none of the other attendees had managed to solve.
