David was very worried before the finals about playing Conrad, but his practice at playing 3L paid off with the standard
method solve to make it crucial. Well done to both for setting up an exciting finish.

I REASONED that SOLANDER would score me 8 until Susie got OLEANDERS.

That was a very good game in the end. At 35-7 and Dave not scoring in any of the first four letters games, it looked like a walkover. Because I've watched the games out of order, I knew the result, but otherwise a tense conundrum!
