At a co event recently with very few "proper countdown players" the few of us decided to not take the piss, i.e. if there was a lot of spottable 7s and one obscure bullshit 8 to declare 7 if the opponent did. Obviously there's nothing you can really do if they declare like 5 but eh I think it helped

A win with at least 60 points puts him top seed, which surely must be doable. He needs 49 points for seed 2 and 30 for seed 3. Should he lose, 41 points puts him at seed 5, else he'll stay in 6th. Let's go
