Round 5. By the time this round began it was obvious that much adrenalin had been burnt off and everyone was beginning to feel a little fractious and even thinking of their dinner! The top 10 players have still not lost a game and Mohammad Sulaiman (PAK) is leading the pack with largest spread with 883. The recorded game is between Craig Beevers (Eng) vs. Paloma Raychbart (ISR). Paloma got the first bonus with KEEPERS for a healthy 93, but Craig hit straight back with the first top table nine-timer - kNUCKLED for a hefty 176! A couple of plays later Paloma evened the score with DAINTIER for 80, and followed that with QUItTOR for 88, and then topped that with TAMINES for 88 making her gross score 472. Not to be outdone, Craig fought back with ARCSINE for 79 to bring his to 390 18 tiles left to play. Paloma then played YOUTH and WHOA for another 76 points while Graig played JAPAN for 60. At this point Paloma had scored 548 to Craig- 450 with 6 tiles remaining. The final score was Paloma 562-487 for Craig. Paloma will go to bed tonight a very happy lady!
