I believe it was MITES, not 100% on that though.

Everyone was asking this earlier on, even I did not catch it properly, but I've seen the replay and I heard MITTS as well...

Wow that lightning fast Conundrum buzz...I think no one was that fast since one of Stephen Read's Conundrums which iirc was MODULATED? Correct me if I'm wrong on this point; Elliott Mack was fast but I don't think he was as fast as Philip today.

Have put MITES in the recap for now (as well as GREAT as opposed to GRATE in the TRIAGE round), since those are listed in the subtitles.

Fair play to Philip -- that 123 was the highest score of the series so far, and I believe that 0.5-second buzz was the fastest since John Cowen's run. Looks like the Apto-Magic is well underway!

I know that in his last prelim, John Cowen got MAXIMISED in about that same amount of time.

You are wrong. Elliott Mack wasn't particularly fast.

Excellent score today by Philip, and very fast con too - not many could have had a chance on that!

Might be a risky thing to put down your pen after a while in the numbers round though...if I saw someone doing that I'd definitely start looking for a simpler method.

Great game by Philip - the potential match-up with Zarte would be interesting.

ZAPPER as the standard method alternative to GAPPER.

A punch in the face as the standard method alternative to allowing Alastair Stewart in Dictionary Corner.

Also who seriously goes for four large when on zero points after five rounds?! I suppose it was brave...

84 points by Round 9. This may sound a bit odd, but from that position 123 could well be considered somewhat... disappointing, for want of a better word...

Yeah, I went back and checked my videos of Elliott Mack, none of it were as fast. Thanks for clarifying though!
