Spoilers for Thursday August 14th 2014 (S71 P28)

Post by Jordan F » Thu Aug 14, 2014 12:08 pm

Mark Davies is up to 4 wins, and is presently number 2 seed of the series thus far. Can he get a 5th win and further cement his position on the board?

Join James for the recap later.

Did anyone else notice some calculations magically appearing in the first numbers game?

25×(7-2)×(9-1)-3=997 for the standard method in round 6.

I wondered why Rachel was scribbling on her clipboard there until I saw her solution.
Obviously she missed the easy standard method.

A bit shaky from Mark today. He wouldn't be able to do that against Tricia Pay.

I think Mark was tired at the end of a long day's filming. Let's hope for him he slept well the following night.

I completely agree with Gavin. This wouldn't be anywhere near good enough in the finals. But as Tony very kindly says I was exhausted after a full days filming. I could barely think in this game.

No surprise there mate, but well done for surviving.

I look forward to this great game you promised me on Twitter yesterday. ;) :) :D

Yes I did, and to check we saw what we saw, played back the video.
Apparently 5 x 75= 375, 3 x 10 = 30, 30 - 2 = 28 and 375 - 28 equalled 347!!!
357 was the target.
So if Mark could spill the beans as to who submitted the wrong calculation.....

I'm pretty sure it was an attempt by Rachel. She realised she'd messed up then got it during the break. I definitely didn't offer anything.

Well, it does. It's probably too many levels of abstraction for your mind though.
