Spoilers for Monday 4th June 2018 (Series 78, Prelim 103)

Post by Johnny Canuck » Mon Jun 04, 2018 1:38 pm

AMPHORAE to beat MANROPE.

If you're going to split multiply on the 3rd numbers, you might as well go all out with (75 - 5 + 4) * 2 * 4.

So, just to be clear, if Jan wins tomorrow and Wednesday, she's in the clear as no.8 seed to play Zarte and the first qf right?

If Jan wins tomorrow, she's through. There would then be enough heats left for another person to beat her and get six wins, but not enough for this person to then lose a game too.

EDIT: But if she does win tomorrow, she isn't confirmed to be #8 seed yet because we don't know how many wins she'll ultimately get.

Certainly not the strongest finalist I have seen but I have enjoyed watching her, though there are about 4/5 people who would be more deserving of her spot in the final.

Yeah she certainly hasn't been one of the strongest contestants I've seen, but that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.

You mean that person can't get on the leaderboard if they lose a game?

Is it not she isn't confirmed to be no.8 seed tomorrow because someone can get six wins and have a higher score than Jan would have should she get six wins?

Alternative for Round 9 if you want to use all the Numbers: (75 x (4 + 4)) - ((50 ÷ 5) - 2)

Spotted NEWBIE in R5 two seconds too late! So I can't take credit for that :(

Poor Joy...not so JOYful for her...sorry I couldn't resist making that pun and if you happen to be reading this, I do apologise in advance if I cause any offense.

That's correct -- Jan would have 6 wins after prevailing tomorrow, and if another person then took over on Wednesday and won 6, they would be required to carry over into Series 79, even if they outscored Jan.

She's already confirmed to be at least #8 seed -- nobody else this series has exactly five wins either.

Confirmed for now right? Cause she'll lose that position if someone gets more wins, or more points and the same amount of wins.
