Hey guys I've been meaning to ask this for a while so I was wondering who you's would say had the 3 hardest octoruns?

Mark Murray by a country mile-honourable mentions to maybe Michael Pfeffer and Chris Thorn.

Are you trying to point out in a subtle way that yours was hard? Or do you disagree with what I said about James and Elliott, what I consider a hard octoruns is how many crucial conundrums you've had in a run. And you only had one but don't get me wrong, you did very well in that game and the whole way through!

Thomas was speaking about your first point, and I would agree that there at least 2 other great players bar Adam who Thomas faced, so would say his was worthy of a mention.

I would judge the hardness of an octorun by the quality of the opponents, not how close the games were. All the weaker octochamps would have had hard octoruns by your definition - not that I'm accusing James or Elliott of being weak of course!

Fair point. So who would you say had the hardest octoruns after mark Murray?
