Spoilers for Wednesday 15th May 2019

What's this nonsense with the fake going high on the 4-large? If you're doing e.g. 75×50/25, you don't start with 75×50. Poor form.

Why don't you use an appropriate thread for your posts?

If I've got this right, 75x50=3750 3750/25=150 is poor form, when you could say 75/25=3 3x50=150.
But 75/25=3 3x50=150 when you could say 100+50=150 is OK?
If you're showboating, you might as well showboat big.

Something like that. 3×50 is hardly showboating.

I think he just wanted to make himself more notable, and in fairness it probably has - even if not for a positive reason.
