Pfffff, after some silly errors on my part in the numbers round, Dan cost me of a win. Nevertheless, there were 2 great players on the show, and made for good viewing, with some decent scores, too. Even had a 26 point lead ahead of Dan, but it wasn't like I lost to a bad player though.
My scores:
Me:83-84 (Dan)
Me:89-73 (Rob)

Yeah was a cracking game today with 2 good players - VENISON in particular was a brilliant spot, beat my WHINES hands down.

GROUNDIE as a nice new tennis related 8 in round 8.

The conundrum today is an example of where taking that extra second to think might be a good idea instead of buzzing in with first instinct - but then you never know how long you'll have.

If Dan octos....which looks quite likely at the moment, it'll leave 22 more episodes...which is enough for 2 octochamps and 6 more games...food for thought anyway.

Or maybe he loses after 1 show! Despite that, I still felt he was the better player, as James didn't get anything for the numbers, but nevertheless, James' letters were strong- a thread of 3 strong letters players who win their games.
