Re: Spoilers for Wednesday 7th March 2018 (Series 78, Prelim 42)

Zarte's awesome obviously, but has anyone else ever scored with a three letter word declaration? If so, I suspect it wouldn't be someone with a near-perfect record of century game scores! There have been a few occasions where this has occurred Peter, twice if I recall rightly in the last series (1 ...

Alt 2nd numbers ("standard method"): (100+25)x7-(9x(6+2))
Also (9 x (100-6-2)) - 25
And ((100 + 25 + 7) * 6) + 9 + 2

Anyone freak out with the letters selection at the beginning of R4?

Re: Spoilers for Friday 19th January 2018 (Series 78, Prelim 9)

TERRAPINS and PRETRAINS also in R8.

Also, 102 points by the 2nd break, and a raw score of 143 is probably a new record for me. :)

MIDLIFE + Z = FILMIZED for a R11 beater. :)
Completely missed this - excellent spot.
Cheers, Elliott.
