Karen Richards (AUS) excitedly reports her second 600+ game of the tournament, 617-300 over Eileen Meghen (IRL).

Round 17: There was no change in the position of the top 4 after the last round with Mohammad Sulaiman (PAK) maintaining the lead on spread with 13-3 ahead of Craig Beevers (Eng). Nigel Richards (NZL) leads the 3 players behind the 2 leaders with 12-4 and has the largest spread so it remains a nail-biting time for the top half dozen players with much depending on what they pick out of the tile bag. Mohammad Sulaiman is once again under the spot light on the top table and after a slow start was able to play ENISLED for 69 to take a 30 point lead. Mohammad steadily pulled away with consistent scoring including JOR (37) TICKY (30) and STARRY (38). Charles had poor picks and had to change UOIYI compounding his deficit. Sulaiman finally won the game 418-292. Just 4 games to go!
