GINESTRAS as an alternative nine in R13

Got to feel for Dan there. He could’ve declared 400 and would’ve got over the line.

He was the better player imo. But nevertheless, James did declare some very nice letters solves, but the numbers were definitely not as good. However,it is very unlucky to lose after a 17 point lead, a bit like how I threw 26 points away yesterday to him :x

Close game but failing to score on any numbers round is usually unforgivable. If someone can get all the numbers against him, then James will be stopped.

BRA!!
I'm in total agreement :)
Unless they're all impossible.

Declaring nothing on the last numbers was especially poor, you have to get at least one away on that, even though it isn't especially difficult.

He could have continued and fudged from there too if he'd added the 50 for 425 and taken away the others for 407.

Yeah, don’t know why you’d give up so soon. As for James, maybe it was nerves.

Haha nice one :)

Would have had the lovely 9 PELOBATID (cheers Bra for teaching me!) if a final vowel had been picked r1.

Nerves or not though, it's still pretty poor to not score on a single numbers round - that's 40 points up for grabs and you can't waste it.
