Weekly summary: Episodes 426 to 430

This feels like my best week so far, certainly of this series.  On the main rounds I was consistently in the ballpark of David and Lily's combined totals, with the conundrum still proving to be an occasional stumbling block.  There was a slight dip in performance on Thursday, but nothing as severe as previous weeks.

Jane hit that fourth-game hurdle and could not quite make it; that puts her in dubious position with respect to the finals.  There was some early turnover in the champions, but Mark managed to find a run of form and will face his fourth game on Monday.  That pushed Steve Malcolm off the table, but there'll be a lot more shuffling of it in weeks to come.  The major question is: Can Mark win that fourth game?

It's been a fairly bland week; no sign of a full monty, and the numbers mostly cooperative (although sometimes requiring some good insight from Lily).  Just the one impossible target to liven things up.

This was a great week for the maximums, with an optimal game to start and definite chances of achieving it on Wednesday and Friday also.  I very nearly had a perfect week on the numbers, which is a heartening sign.  It's the letters I am particularly happy about, though, as I can concede a lot of ground on them sometimes; perhaps I was helped here by the lack of full monty potential.
