Surprised Susie didn't extend Mary's NOTATE to ANNOTATE in R1.

Bad miss! I was doubting as to whether I was seeing a phantom letter there :D

Solid play by both- Glen was unlucky towards the end considering the fact that he was not a bad player and that the 6 small did not work in his favour. Though 888 was a bit of a bad miss considering the fact that he had 811 which was a bit more complex. Also, had MISPAID in one of the later rounds. Chickened Assuaged and had I got the conundrum I would have been 1 point off a max game! Also, my Mum got her highest ever score of 94 and beat both players very comfortably, which she was happy with :).
My scores for today:
Me:111-57(Mary)
Me:111-60 (Glen).

I doubt she missed it - she likely just didn't want to embarrass Mary and so withheld it. If she did miss it though then meh, it's much easier to do sat at home.

Have to pick on this - what method did you use that was so complex? There was plenty of easy methods available. I'd say the 888 was harder.

Oops! meant 483, solely on the fact that that it was a 6 small (and although it was simple enough), not many of recent have been of the calibre to get a 6 small sum)- just thought that 888 screamed 111 x 8, personally.....

I doubt your doubt. Susie doesn't normally turn down an open goal like that, although she's always nice about it.

I took a while seeing 811 but then seeing Rachel and Glen both had it early on told me there was probably a straight forward way, so then I saw it.
I didn't think of 111 x 8 myself for 888 but saw 100 x 3 x (4-1) - 7 - 5 straight away so didn't need to. 483 was just too convenient for a gamble!
