Series 25

From Countdown

Series 25 ran from January 1993 to April 1993, and began with Championship of Champions VI. The twenty-fifth of 53 series presented by Richard Whiteley, it was won by Don Reid.

The finals of this series went completely true to the seedings (i.e. the higher seed always beat the lower seed, with no upsets).

Seed table

Rank Name Wins Points
1 Don Reid 8 487
2 James Sinclair 8 395
3 Dave Rickard 5 299
4 Noel Turner 4 259
5 Pat Hynes 4 228
6 Mike Drew 3 199
7 Roly Hawkes 2 162
8 Ralph Mayer 2 156
NOTE: Lynne Belgum, with 3 wins and 182 points, would have been the #7 seed, but for unknown reasons, she didn't return for the finals, so Ralph Mayer took her place.
Between Series 22 and Series 37, players were ranked by total number of points, including winning and losing scores.
