Round 15: T A P E A B A L L

Mike buzzes on 2.5 seconds to say PALATABLE which is correct.
Final Score: 101–57 (max 122)

So, he started with a century, and he finished with a century, with one further century inbetween, and that combined with his total of 786 points means that Mike Daysley not only becomes the 5th octochamp, but also the 5th octochamp in a row to go straight into the #1 position on the finals board!!

With just under 10 weeks to go until the finals, it's going to be interesting to see how many more octochamps we're going to get in...., we currently 5, plus another 2 on 7 wins, so it's looking likely that the seemingly safe 7-timers at the start of the series are in danger of possibly missing the cut... :shock: :o

STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT :!: :!: :!: ;) :) :D
