Steve Redfern got his 6th win and a guaranteed place in the finals yesterday. Can he try to improve his standings with a 7th win?

Erm, don't you mean me, Jordan??

P.S. For those of you wondering why Mark Davies was in the audience yesterday, it's because his wife is today's challenger. ;) :) :D

Is CAMPION valid in round 13? or am I just allowing myself to be clouded of pride formyold primary school?

Are we going to get a special between Mark and Anne-Marie?
Definitely not Jamie McNeill or Schrodinger's Cat....

In the SHARKS round (8) I though wouldn't it be nice if SHAKIRAS was a beater. I didn't realise I almost had it right but for two vowels switched :-)

Well I will - ODE3 only has lowercase v, ODO has uppercase V in the title but lowercase v in the example sentence.

There was an alt 8 there anyway and also an 8 in the "OUTSETS" round.

Yeah, and there is a verb as well, which uses the lower case too.

VEINLETS as the alternative in that one, and TESTUDOS in the "OUTSETS" round. 8-) ENCOMIA in round 13 too.

2nd Numbers Alt.: ((75 + 1) x 7) + 6 = 538
3rd Numbers Alt.: (100 - 9 - ((75 + 50) / 25)) x 7 = 602

UP THE MIGHTY TERRIERS!!! ;) :) :D :mrgreen: 8-)

To clarify, it also uses it in the example sentence as opposed to the entry. It's a weird one, but it's explicitly listed with a capital, so I'd say it's out. I'm not sure if example sentences count as the rules.

Guys, you're both experienced forumers - you must know how it works by now! If you can find the forum, you can find the dictionary!

It was allowed in OED3, presumably as a verb as there is only one type of vaseline (or Vaseline if you prefer).
