NSW Championships

INTERESTING FACTS

• The top 3 finishers all got at least one win over me but it was very close in the end. With one loss I dropped from first to sixth but it was an enjoyable tournament.

• My most painful loss was to Rex Shakespeare. I was 50 points ahead and the board appeared virtually blocked with no bingo lanes. Rex then played SEEPING/ SERRING onto ERRING which fitted perfectly and won him the game. He also ended his long losing streak against me. Well done Rex.

• Graeme played ALENCONS in our first game, and TUYERES in our second which were the weirdest words played against me,

• Edward got beaten by Alistair Richards. hahahaha

Game 17
VS Alison Pollard


My final rack of EDITOR? was handy but I had 7 minutes left to find the best play. As it happened there were four bingos which I missed. See if you can spot them. I lost the game 406 to 416.

Scores at this point: 359 to 399 in Alison’s favour.
