Spoilers for Monday 6th February 2017

Elliott Mack's eighth game, so he will retire one way or another today.

I've quite enjoyed watching Elliott's games, partly because it seems to mean the world to him when he wins, puffing out in relief whenever he wins a close game. But also his reaction to basically any letter other than an E, S or T coming out as if it's the worst thing in the world.

A fine accolade in solving all 8 conundrums, with terrific speed too!
Well done Elliott Mack!

Did Tony call 4 large a "Stelling Selection"? Not sure I've heard that term before, nor can I think of what connections 4L in particular has to Jeff.

I wondered about that too, and thought maybe I'd just forgotten.

By the way, I got the numbers your way and Rachel's (late) way within the time, so I think that's the first time I've beaten Rachel twice in a single numbers game. I was surprised she didn't get it actually. More than one large and a target around 625 and multiplying up is always an obvious avenue to explore. And if you don't notice that, the 75*8 solution was fairly obvious anyway. Still, Rachel's normally pretty good and I'm happy to get the double beater!

I liked the camera man's reaction to the CAMERAMAN tea time teaser :)
I thought I was good at Countdown until I joined this forum

The Jeff connection with 4L is it's the same as "too" small :-)
