Things are hotting up after four rounds.  Steve Kee won the big clash on top board against Luke and Colin kept his hopes of retaining his title still very much alive with a good win over Brian.  Elsewhere Sanjoy and Brendan picked up wins, while the games between Mike Coffey and Steve Burge and Peter Jenner and Steve Winstanley ended peacefully.
