Like Zarte's first ever game. We needed a nine after those other selections. And I'm glad it's common enough for me to spot it on countdown

I'll be really surprised (and disappointed) if mike doesn't make the 800 club After today, I honestly don't think he's that likely to anymore -- he'd need his highest score so far (115) to qualify.

He wasn't, I was so shocked that he didn't even get an invite, especially as there's only one from S76.
If that's the only basis you have for his case, I'm not surprised he wasn't invited at all.
