Yeah, decent game. Shame it didn't quite go to a crucial. I didn't think the 737 was that easy, as someone said above. I actually did (100+8/4)*6+50+75, rather than adding the 8 and 4 separately, so arguably I made a bit of a meal of it.

Zarte caused Alex Ferguson's brain haemorrhage. Wow. Jesus fuck - dark :lol: That's like something I'd say :lol: Well played today by the way. I think Jan always knew she was likely to struggle today, but her score probably doesn't fairly reflect how well she would normally expect to have done. 0 o...
