Last round's annotated game will be delayed for a little while yet, due to an annotator error. This round will be a little delayed, as we're still short-handed without Julie Tate (Sco).
In this round's annotated game, first-place Mikki Nicholson (Eng) plays third-place Theresa Brousson (MLT). It's an exciting game with a close finish with pretty bingoes like AAIKMORS# and CEHIINT (the alphabetically earlier of the two), but ugly racks like DDOOXUY (score 50 points using OOY and draw ?UU).
Down at Board 13, Margaret Armstrong (Sco) played Brid Ni Bhriain (IRL), dropped off a 609-347 slip and walked off before I could ask her about the game. When I caught up with her, she had trouble remembering the game, but eventually was able to reconstruct with a scoresheet that she had played REALIZE (79), ROUGHEST (104, double-double), KITTING (99) and scored well with the X. That's the third 600+ game at this event.
Mikki beat Theresa and is alone at 8-1. Cecil lost 363-439 to Chinedu, stays in second place, right ahead of Chinedu. Jojo moves up one place to fourth after beating Helen 416-356.
