I was doing alright until I risked "unstaked" in R10, but got the conundrum quickly which surely isn't that hard?

Tbf that was quite a good standard of play today, and I'm glad Nick gave John a bashing for missing 390 :) Bar that, his letters skills are quite solid and consistent, and he took me to a TB crucial today...

Same here and I'm proud of it, partly because no one from the audience solved it...this is one of the rare times I've solved it when the contestants and audience failed to...REWINDING from last year was another one...

Alternative for R9 which is slightly indirect (Because why not): ((100 - 2) x (6 - 4)) - 1

(P.S. I had to say John missing R3 was VERY unfortunate...he could have gotten 99, just shy of the century... :( )

Anyone manage to get his 393? Certainly much harder than 390 anyway.

We didn't actually see the audience with no hands up. I'm prepared to stick my neck out and call bullshit that no-one in the audience got it.

A confusing declaration indeed, I can only think he made an error of some sort...

Kinda pissed off to find out LIMEWATER isn't valid in R7. I was so sure of it that I didn't even bother checking it. :oops:
