Spoilers for Tuesday 8th May 2018 (Series 78, Prelim 85)

Post by Thomas Carey » Tue May 08, 2018 11:21 am

It's Toby! And he's won 7 with yesterday's 104 being his lowest yet, can he octo? Probably, but find out soon I guess

Was gonna do one of those 'he needs X points to be nth seed' things but since his points total is higher than all but one person's this series already:

A loss puts him at 4th, above Dougie, regardless of points.
A win puts him at 2nd, ahead of octochamps Chris and Phil, regardless of points.
But to catch Zarte in 1st, he needs a win with 189 points. Technically not impossible, but yeah.

And you did.

Well done Toby by the way. Good set games, and that's a good name you've got too.

Excellent Game today Toby! Congratulations as well, I think you might be the first person born in this century to become an Octochamp so you have a record yourself!

I feared it might go down to a Crucial Conundrum initially at the start of the show (After all, it's your 8th Game and people do start to feel the pressure) but after the last third of the game, phew that huge breakaway was safe enough to declare you a winner by Round 12.

Hopefully you have done well in the Finals and we'll see how you get on in mid-June! :)

I so agree with Rachel...you came out with words that not only have I not heard before, you beat me with those words! And for someone four years younger than me to do that is just amazing and stunning!

Thank you Ryan! To be the first octochamp of this century feels like a great achievement!! :)

Yeah, it was the last one filmed on that day, so I did make a few silly mistakes, possibly from tiredness.

Congratulations on octochampdom Toby! 882 is a great score given a relative shortage of 9s, could've easy been 900 with 1 more. 8 centuries too (I'm jealous :P )

I wasn't in the audience for your QF so I'm looking forward to it!

Cheers Brad! :D Yeah, I could have easily reached the 900 club with OUTGLARED and the last conundrum. :/
