Trust Rachel to have another method to show rather than completing the 14x51+10 method.

Well done to Paul. Tought he was going to max the game, but 13 max is pretty hot.

Yeah, ridiculously great standard by Paul. I almost thought David was going to unfortunately break the low-scoring record for a champion outside of a series finals, but that last numbers game saved him there.

PAGEANT in round 12 as an alternative.

1st Numbers Alt.: (((50 x 2) + 8) x 7) + 6 = 762
WE ARE PREMIER LEAGUE!!!
UP THE MIGHTY TERRIERS!!! ;) :) :D :mrgreen: 8-)

Both contestants could have got there. 8×9×10+9×6-50=724.

Yeah that was my way but then I realised it was basically RRs method too except she just did some split multiplication and saved herself a 9. It was the only round I won too :-)

Was it not 12 maxes? (Still way better than I usually do on Apterous, even with an optimal blood alcohol content.)

I think he still does have The Record in the new 15-round format.

Seems there is a beater in RIVALISE not reported here (which is one of those "new" words), so 12 max.
