And Alan makes it six octos! Can one of the TWO NEW CONTESTANTS be our 7th?
There are 7 octos already, aren't there?

Re: Spoilers for Thursday 4th October 2018 (Series 79, Prelim 70)

Mike facing another good player -9 maxes apiece, do not think someone has lost on that in a prelim for a good while. Scoreline was a bit harsh imo and like Tealin, Susan could have one a few but Mike is a good player :) It was a decent enough game, but maxes don't tell you everything. I think the r...

Re: C of C Draw......

Just a quick irrelevant Q: Who was the DC guest for the final day of recordings (a.k.a today's) - Wiki states Jon Culshaw but the ticket states and has stated for a while that it was Rufus Hound. Thanks :) Jon Culshaw is in the various pictures people have posted on Facebook, so it was probably him...

No joy for Unstarted in R1....

Good quality game there. Feel for Tealin a bit as he is unlucky to lose on 87, and could have definitely gone on to win a few more, but those small letters errors cost him in the end, as it could have easily been a losing score of 95-100+ for him without them.
