Round 15: L O V E C R I S P

Dinos buzzes on 29.25 seconds to say PRESOLVIC which is incorrect.
Sandra does not buzz.
The answer was COVERSLIP, answered correctly in the audience by Luke Johnson-Davies no less :!: :) :D 8-) (But, unfortunately, it's also an illegal conundrum, as SLIPCOVER is also valid... :oops: :oops: :roll: :roll: :shock: :shock: :o :o )
Final Score: 118–71 (max 147)

Well, that was certainly an exciting match, and Dinos' 4 nines (although 2 were incorrect) certainly boosted his score, and even though Sandra did well like Mark yesterday, Dinos' 9 surge got him over the line and into Thursday's semi-final, against the winner of Monday's match between #3 Brendan Whitehurst and #6 Steven Turnbull.
