LOWAGER in R13...what a shame Jacob fell at the last hurdle! The episode was recorded at about 2030hrs-ish back on Monday, 23 October 2017 so yeah maybe that explains why...

I am also sad to see Jacob go, a solid player who certainly could have octo'd had he not faced Mary. It was a very close game, but I think Mary put in the more solid performance- the 693 miss for Jacob was what did it- it reminded me of the last prelim game of S77. We will have to see how Mary fares as the show goes on....
My scores:
Me:108-62 (Jacob)
Me:108-62 (Mary)

Hate to disappoint but no lowager....LOWAGES though.

Does anyone else ever think it'd be amusing if they invited all those guilty of saying "and a better one" back to the studio to play specials and included a load of Zs, Qs, Js, Fs and Xs in the consonant box? Such is my hatred of people who say "and a better one".

He was a bit annoying though, right?

I suppose if you consider "and a better one, please", each time after a bad letter came out, then I get where you're coming from. But he seemed like a nice, happy chap who clearly has a big future ahead of him- and I'd rather see someone enjoying themselves (which he looked as if he was) than a grump in the seat :)
