Zarte Siempre vs Philip Aston

We have a rematch in the final, Zarte came out on top previously - will he make it 2/2, or will Philip get his own back?

Zarte Siempre vs Phil Davies

Blimey that was close! Congrats to Zarte, commiserations to Phil.

I thought picking a 5th vowel in R7 was an odd choice, a C would've given SLUICEWAY.

Paul went from a 42 point deficit to just a 12 point decifit, would've been sensational if he won.

I know people guess non-words but two people coming up with LUMINEER and LUMINEERS is a bit of a weird coincidence. What about LUMINEER says "word"?
They were likely thinking of LUMINAIRE

Re: While y'all wait...

Very nice, HOATZINS is a good spot, and you even managed a solution to a numbers round with a typo! The 18 should've been an 8.

A 7 is available in R2 and a 6 available in R4, but I don't think they'll be found. The conundrum remains unsolved.
