Ta for the quick recap Bolas.

Just a little note: the brackets need adjusting in Rd 10.

Proof that even idiots can get well and truly mainwheeled.

Well spotted Kai :). I have now corrected Round 10 :D.

I actually rushed the recap (so I missed out any notes and spots by forumites etc) because I had to go somehwere, but the place closed 15 minutes earlier than it should've :twisted:. If I knew that was going to happen, I would've done a more detailed recap :).

There is the 'edit' facility if you'd like. A clever function really.

No you haven't. Should be a plus after the 25. :P But only a minor error.

I thought Jeff's reaction to solving this one was very endearing.
