I got CAULDRON as well, did that beat the panel?

Martin
If you cut a gandiseeg in half, do you get two gandiseegs or two halves of a gandiseeg?

Yeah. I was surprised that they didn't see it. I thought with the person picking a vowel at the end, they saw it and didn't risk getting the 'S' for CAULDRONS hence pick a vowel.

OXALIS was quality, I had BIOGAS (sounds like a health problem), there seems to be a BIO- theme going on.

In that round, naturally, I saw BOLAS and couldn't see anything else :lol:.

I think if anyone told me ten years ago that I'd be watching Ann Widdecombe telling jokes on national television, I would have declared them mad and had them sectioned.

Is ABSAIL a word in round 2? CountMax doesn't allow it

Vaguely pointless but nice round 10 alternative:

((100 - 1) x (9 + 3) - 6) / 2 = 591

I am amazed by the recent quality of contestants. There have been 3 in the past week or so that have mustered 5 wins between them when each won of them could easily have notched 8 with a following wind. Surely this guy Richard can win 8?? DoD - I reckon this guy could be your closest challenger. But who knows?

I'm not sure he will. There have been some good players who have had early exits and Richard might be another one. Tomorrow will tell.

I agree with Joseph, the quality is so high that I think richard will lose sometime soon. I am sticking my neck out and saying he will win no more than 3 games :P ! But he will take some beating :)

Well lets see who is right Joseph :P It was a pretty close encounter today. There could be another great player lurking in the shadows!
