RECOATS as a R2 alt. Was a bit unsure about PEDIATRY in R1, but struck it lucky.

Not to be rude but Greg's 49 was rather generous given his ability.

Set a personal play-along best of 150 against Jan! Hoping the letters during the finals (and planned CoC) prove as generous as today's!

Very nice Johnny!- had an inkling there was a 9 there on R13, but just could not see it personally despite having PLASTERS :)

High Maxing Game, and got two "Nines" in the process! :) Congrats to Johnny for getting that high, even I can't do that!

Alternative to Round 6 which is SO MUCH easier and uses all the Numbers: (25 x 5 x 4) - (6 x (9 - 7))
Alternative to Round 14: (75 x 8) - ((10 + 6) x 4)

I'm starting to like Jan as a contestant! She so keeps us entertaining with her humourous style!

And on a sidenote, I'm so glad both contestants did not choose to be lazy and declare ERASED in Round 4.

Round 6 the same as Ryan and round 14: (75 x 6) + (8 x 10) + 4 + 2.

So I think it would have been 94-80. But still my highest ever. I think.

Wow that's impressive. I actually fear for Aston and Thorn or whoever plays you in the qfs and sfs.

I got round 9 the nice way - 50x100/(9-7/7)-5=620 - this on my way to a score of 153. Casual. Got HOARSENED, RETRAINED and PILASTERS but not PREDACITY.
