Sharp Practice has prevailed in this high voting and at times extremely close match up with 53% of the vote.

The last QF is underway today and its another corker. General de Armee takes on Chain of Command.

General de Armee is a big battle Napoleonic game from the pen of Dave Brown. It saw off The Men Who would be Kings in the first round and then Fire and Fury in an epic 2nd Round clash. Could Dave get two sets in the semi finals.

Chain of Command is a WW2 Skirmish Game which is one of the most popular for that genre. It's the last remaining "seeded" rule set in the competition having defeated Mortem et Gloriam in Round 2. It has a big following so lets see if they turn out.

In QF two To the Strongest is ahead of Lion Rampant by 5 votes with 460 cast. Whilst QF 3 I turning into the heavyweight match up we were hoping for. Battlegroup is just 4 votes ahead of Sharp Practice with nearly 900 votes cast. Both are way to close to call.

O Group has qualified for the semi finals this morning, but the other two quarters are remarkably close.

So one last time for this round, get voting !

Chain of Command eases through with 72% of the vote.

There have been just shy of 12,000 votes overall so far, Semis will start on Thursday
