Yeah was unlucky for Curtis there but the standard was quite good today. Padrino as a R11 alternative...

Alternative for Round 9 which involves All the Numbers: (75 x (7 - (8 - 6))) - (10 ÷ 10)

At the last moment, Curtis lost out to Paul the incumbent Champion. I feel so sorry for him, and Rachel just "rubbing" in saying "I should have went with 4 Large"...oh dear...I was expecting Curtis to win very comfortably after the second TTT...guess sometimes the game can turn out to be very unpredictable! :(

Whoa. Paul pulled that one out of the fire. Respect to both players.

Quite a few beaters today, including THANEDOM and ARMIGERS.

Standard method on 3rd numbers: (7 + 6 - 8) * 75 - 10 / 10

Curtis was very unlucky to lose having a 15 point lead by the last 2 rounds.

MODERANT as an alternative to THANEDOM in R1.

Yep that was tough on Curtis. Seeing we're doing round 9 solutions and I haven't seen my way yet, here it is: 75 x 10/(10 - 8) - (7 - 6)

I don't think Curtis losing was that big a deal. He was an OK player, like Paul, but unlikely to go far in the general scheme of things.

For me it was just because he managed to get a good lead over Paul, which I can't remember anyone else doing, then lost it.

As I probably played my best ever game this day I just worked out how I would have performed against Paul & Curtis (with due respect to studio pressure etc) and I scored 110, but more importantly Paul would have scored 48 and Curtis 68 against me! So Curtis easily appears to me as a better player than Paul.
