The current top ten players in the club grand prix are:
Games played in the club championship, Tony Locke rapidplay and the NECL league/knockout count for points in the grand prix. Where points are equal percentage score is used as a tie-breaker.
Games have only been played in two of the seeding groups for the club championship. In group 1, Mohammud and Nathan have both won a game and the match between them will determine who comes first and second in that group. Brian Remmer has a draw and a win from his two games in group 4 - meaning, due to tie-breaks, he will finish in 1st place. 2nd place in group 4 will depend on the result of the match between Dave Chatfield and Shazia Jaufarally. In the Tony Locke Rapidplay there are a number of players who have not played all their first three games yet so the current standings are not clear. Nathan, Svein and Clive have all played more than one game and are currently unbeaten.
In NECL Division 2, Colchester A are in 1st place having won three matches and drawn one. Colchester B are in 6th place but have only played two games (a win and a loss). In Division 3, Colchester D are in 1st place after winning three matches and losing one; Colchester C are in 7th place with one win and one loss. In the NECL Plate, Colchester have reached the semi-final where they will play Baddow B.

Where previous round games have not been played both players have been given half a point for the purpose of making the 4th round draw - when the games have been played both player's scores will be updated. These half-points are shown in player scores above - so some scores could potentially go down as matches from previous rounds are played. Three players have been added to the draw this round - they are shown as having a score of 0.
