Final Score: 53–61 (max 73)

NOW 3/4 :!: :!: :!: ;) :) :D :mrgreen: 8-) Unsurprisingly, Jono was right behind me, but I was well delighted to win on the top table, as it got me right back into the swing of things. :D :D :D :D :D

Statistics Corner

Jon:
Total score - 53
Raw score - 53
Total % of max - 73
Raw % of max - 73
Total average score per round - 5.9
Raw average score per round - 5.9

Raw score - 68
Total % of max - 84
Raw % of max - 93
Total average score per round - 6.8
Raw average score per round - 7.6
Number of maxes - 6

So, after those results, I dropped down the rankings a bit to 7th place, but worryingly for me, the 2 people in 8th and 9th place were Graeme Cole and Ben Wilson, who had I had "fond" memories of from Co:Leam 5 weeks ago...............

The end has a bit of an unusual climax, as Ben accidentally messes up the flip action for revealing the conundrum, and Graeme buzzes in immediately, with me just behind, but Ben thinking I must've missed, but as he asks if he thinks we should have a redone conundrum, I throw in the towel, as I knew Graeme had got it, and I had a clear view of it, so fair is fair, Graeme got the win and some revenge for earlier on. :D

So, that's my COEDI journey over, a 9th place finish on the "Edinburgh" system is pretty decent, and I somehow don't seem to lose on anything than a crucial at the moment.......... :P

Awesome recaps as always Robbo, had a feeling me vs Graeme might have been a double max. :D

By my reckoning we've now played 3 times in my last 4 co-events (that I actually played in) so we'll likely face each other again plenty of times in future events!

Just as an aside - the OTWITDUET conundrum in the Anne v Graham game must have been one of Mike's conundrums that were for the games I was going to be involved in. Certainly wasn't one of mine.

Conundrum created a problem - at CoEdi I do the conundrums and Mike does a separate batch for the games I'm competing in, but we hadn't bargained for having to play one another. Nevertheless, with a room filled full of Countdown aficionados, such problems are very easily overcome, and thanks go to Innis who supplied our host Michelle with the following -

Round 9: I C O M E T O P S

C2 buzzes on 3 seconds to say COMPOSITE which is correct.

Mike and I had caught the bus that morning from near the hotel we were staying in to the venue of the event. I bought the tickets and told Mike that if we played he'd have to let me win or I wasn't going to give him his ticket. Surprising what a bit of blackmail will do :twisted:

Mike went to get the conundrum, but when he revealed it, it turned out to be one of mine that he'd picked up by mistake. I pointed this out and he went to get one of the ones he'd done. Would my honesty be rewarded with a win?
