Weekly summary: Episodes 26 to 30

I managed to stay close to the David and Lily combination all week, except for a slip of the pen on Friday's game, so that was nice.  I was also pleasantly surprised to be competitive with Naween throughout the week, although it is likely that the advantage of having seen the conundrums before was significantly at play.  Regardless, it was quite a satisfactory week and possibly my highest weekly aggregate to date.

When I said in last week's summary that Kashi had a good chance of becoming a retiring champion, I had not known that her last game was against Naween.  It was no surprise that she lost that last game, and Naween had his own five game streak that he will finish on Monday.  One would expect the current top four to make the finals, and the others not to.

There were three full monties that I found this week, and a tricky one that I did not.  This exactly matches David's performance, and lends credence to the idea that I'm only doing so well right now because of the blue book.  I look forward to episodes 51 and above where this will not be a factor; it should be interesting to see if there is much difference.  Lily solved every numbers game this week, for the first time (although in two of the previous weeks her only unsolved ones were genuinely unsolvable).

The maximum count was much better than last week, including two optimal games.  The only real blot was the error on the last numbers round of Friday, alas.
