Spoilers for 18th March 2019

Well done Maggie! A very likeable personality and a strong player, too- one of the best non-Apterites in a while. Look forward to seeing her in the finals! On that note, I think I will start making some stats for the first 3 octochamps so far.....

Re: Spoilers for Friday 15th March 2019 (Series 80, Prelim 38)

Nice second numbers solve there but slightly easier is (100-8)x75/25-10+50 (though sadly out of time). Standard method for last numbers: (75-50)x25+100+10. Shame that he was paired up with Maggie, probably some of the best non-apterite gameplay I have seen in a while. The 4L solve was class. Yet, I...

Is Maggie an Apterite? You don't casually declare CRAZING without any hint of it being a risk if your only exposure to words is "real life".
No, she isn't- one of the most talented ones I have seen in a while.

I've said this a few times this week about players like Adam and Jimmy, but Kerry seems like the consistent type to win a few more. Does not strike me as octochamp material as it stands, but 109 is a very nice score to debut on nevertheless, and it was a good game to watch!
