rexhurley (Indo-Greeks) has taken a firm grip on Division A
with 6 consecutive wins. shadowblack (Indians) is the closest challenger with 4 wins from 5 and NikiforosFokas (Rhoxolani) is unbeaten in 3. There is a similar situation in Division B
where Cunningcairn (Indians) has won 7 out of 8 matches. Only Dortmund (Bosporans) and MikeC_81 (Seleucids) have a mathematical chance of overtaking him and Cunningcairn has to play MikeC_81 in his last match. nyczar (Scots-Irish) has stormed to the top of Division C
and now has 7 wins from 7. Hendricus (Seleucids) is in second place with a very creditable record of 6 wins from 8 matches, but the biggest challenger to nyczar is Lognormus (Indians) who has 4 wins from 5 and who still has to play nyczar. At the bottom Brenmusik (Slave Revolt) and Spectre195 (Armenians Tigranes) have yet to play a match which is likely to decide the relegation issue. Division D
is by far the slowest division in the tournament but it hasn't stopped paulmcneil (Indians) from completing 8 of his matches and topping the table with 6 wins. Praeter (Romans) is very much in the hunt with 4 wins from 5 and Conaire (Scots-Irish) has won his first 2 games. A very interesting situation is developing in Division E
where pbuck777 (Jewish) is still the front runner with 6 wins from 8, but Gwaylare (Pontics), Zolwer (Spanish, Sertorius) and 76mm (Ptolemaics) are within striking distance. Supervark (Ancient British) is in danger of getting the wooden spoon with 6 straight defeats so far.

Player of the week
nyczar, Division C, has registered 4 wins this week to top Division C with his formidable Scots-Irish army.
Also, spare a thought for poor old Brenmusik (Slave Revolt) who has now suffered 8 consecutive defeats in Division C. He can still get off the bottom of the table if he beats Spectre195 (Armenians Tigranes) in his last match.
