Before I get on with my review let's just take the time to appreciate and congratulate Rachel Riley for being on the show for a decade (Actually it's tomorrow but it's a Saturday)! :D I somehow mentioned Anniversary in a different way before OOW and during the second TTT ad break where I saw the "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" guy, realising 2019 marks 20 years since that scandal. Had absolutely zero idea Susie was going to mention this! Remarkable achievement and cheers to the next 10 years ahead! Alright back on track!

Today marks the halfway point of the Championship and, the final preliminary of that as well. Well-played from Philip with TOLUENE and SIDERATE! (On the other hand, unlucky on the bluewing declaration; he mentioned in the daily chat it's in CSW (i.e. Scrabble Dictionary) but not ODO.)

Noel has somehow traded his curly hair for some straight one (Am I the only one that cares about people changing their hairstyle or looks on the show after they last appeared some time back?), and we all know by now his ultimate weapon: 4 Large. I'm so, so glad he got to show off his skills in R14 which I'm sure will be the highlight of the day! Sadly, you couldn't beat Philip and he won in identical circumstances like yesterday (14 point deficit leading up to the Conundrum). :( After all, I don't blame Philip for choosing 1 Large instead of his usual 3 Large to play safe (Which he did admit). Nevertheless, I have to agree with Philip, you certainly are the best 4 Large Player anyone has ever seen in recent times and from here on the Forum and Apterous, you deserve our applause and even a standing ovation for the times you've outrageously showed off your Maths skills. :) It's a shame you've moved on from the community as you mentioned here after filming was over last year. but I'm sure your spirit lives on here and I wish you all the best in your career as a Maths teacher!

With the Preliminaries all done and dusted, we have 100% of S73 contestants, 75% of S77 contestants and 50% of S78 contestants that are through and the rest have to either go home or watch the rest of the Championship in the audience. A new week and it's Jonathan who will take up Philip. Based on my archived information about the recording, today and next Monday's episode were filmed consecutively, I wonder if this will cost the latter the chance to progress further...

Preliminary #1 (02 January): Jonathan Wynn (Series 73 Grand Champion) vs Phil Davies (Series 78 Semi-Finalist) (103 - 68)
Preliminary #2 (03 January): Ann Dibben (Series 74 Runner-Up) vs John Cowen (Series 77 Semi-Finalist) (94 - 97)

Preliminary #4 (07 January): Thomas Carey (Series 73 Semi-Finalist) vs Stephen Read (Series 76 Grand Champion) (106 - 87)
Preliminary #5 (08 January): Paul Erdunast (Series 74 Grand Champion) vs Zarte Siempre (Series 78 Grand Champion) (105 - 113)
Preliminary #6 (09 January): Tom Chafer-Cook (Series 77 Grand Champion) vs Martin Hurst (Series 75 Grand Champion) (129 - 89)
Preliminary #7 (10 January): Bradley Horrocks (Series 77 Runner-Up) vs Andrew Macleod (Series 75 Runner-Up) (128 - 104)
Preliminary #8 (11 January): Philip Aston (Series 78 Runner-Up) vs Noel McIlvenny (Series 77 Semi-Finalist) (103 - 89)

I care too. I thought Noel's hair looked like Zarte's new style a little. and we all know by now his ultimate weapon: 4 Large.

Whoops. Didn't think it would just be in the middle of your whole text thing. I thought it would say (Owen Carroll says) or something like that. Sorry about that. Also sorry if I make you read this whole text thing. It's the only way I know.
