Congrats to Stephen on becoming an octochamp, a member of the 900 club and also the all centuries club :D

Think TRILOGUES was there in the OUTLIERS round.

Shame you had to suffer the most boring dictionary guest I've ever witnessed for the last part of your run. Gives the impression he'd rather be elsewhere.

He must be fairly high up on the max % and number of maxes list...he hardly missed a thing!

Yeah, very good run. Nicely over the 900 mark. Obviously 1000 would have taken a fair bit of good fortune as well as good play, but blame Eoin for spreading the thought around the forum.

Edit - I think the max was only 1021 anyway, so not conducive to a 1000 score!

Couldn't agree more, I don't think he contributed to a single game. I thought he might have had a prod from behind after the first "day" but it appears not. I hope he isn't invited back.

I doubt he will be, waste of time and money. Rarely found anything longer than a 5 letter word and just sat there looking glum. Zero personality whatsoever. The good thing is I record it (or rather get my mum too!) and so don't have to suffer any dull anecdotes as I can fast forward them. Still makes for uncomfortable viewing when Nick turns to dictionary corner and asks what else was available though.
