Also 100 x 6 + 25 x 10 - 4
and one of the 6s:
((8 + 1) x 8 - 4/4) x 9 = 639

And its mirror image 100 x 10 - 25 x 6 - 4
Dreadful tactical decision to risk SPOKIER in the last letters round. Nothing to gain, everything to lose.

I think the challenger was quite good today, but he seemed annoyed that he threw the game away. But although he failed to score in any of the last four letters rounds, he would have needed to score in every single one of them to win the game, unless he actually beat the champion in one of the rounds and assuming the champion still got the conundrum.

If he had a 6 in the round he risked spokier, there would have been a crucial conundrum. Maybe he might have been more competitive in the conundrum? All surmising though!

The champion was poorer than usual at the numbers today. I reckon that could be tiredness though!

Can't help but think the challenger through the game away today after having a steady lead. After losing his >10 point lead he just seemed to collapse.

John does appear to be noticeably weaker than at the start, though this could just be down to nerves/tiredness. I still think he's almost certainly going to octo.
