Spoilers for Tuesday 6th February 2018.

Post by Tom S » Tue Feb 06, 2018 2:59 pm

Some strong play by Phil today, who took me to a crucial (partially due to my silly miss of 959), and never particularly had a huge challenge with Simon, who, albeit seemed very nice, seemed to lose the grip of things early on. I can see Phil staying in the champion's seat for a few games at least, and think he could give Chris a run for his money so far in the seeding. So well done to him :)

Plus, was anyone frustrated that Phil didn't opt for a final vowel on the last letters?

Little bit -- either a final E or A would have given a fairly simple 9.

FAVELAS as a beater to LOAVES/HALVES.

2nd Numbers Alt.: 75 * 8 - 25 * (5 - 3) - 1

Optimal efficiency 1-away solution on 3rd numbers: (25 + 1) * 8 * 4
* Despite everything, it's still you.

Was thinking more about UNDERLINE tbh :)

ROBINETS and RAGLORE as consecutive r1/r2 beaters.

Surprised BRONZE isn't in as an adjective, otherwise could have had BRONZEST for r1. Seems as plausible as PUCEST or MAUVEST :)

Seconded Martin, did have my doubts about it and Bronziest, but BRONZEST definitely seemed a feasible proposition (was thinking it must be in for the reasons you stated), but did chicken, which ended up being a good thing... :) But definitely was surprised by it.
