Weekly summary: Episodes 46 to 50

Another erratic performance from me this week, with many letters maxima missed.  The lowlight was missing a full monty that would have giving me a head-to-head win against David and Lily, an opportunity that is not likely to be repeated often.  It was another week of strong competitors, with the unluckiest being Sam Chow whose chance of victory went away due to three of the easiest numbers rounds put together in one game.

Esther Perrins lost her fourth game but still holds down a precarious sixth place.  Liam Bastick will get a fourth game so is currently in eighth spot on the rankings, but highly likely to move to at least seventh.  Sudesh Piyatissa and James Weatherhead were the two contestants who dropped out of the eight.

David found the only full monty on Wednesday, but missed the one on Thursday.  I was just a little slow to see that missed one, but at least found it after time.  Lily was temporarily troubled by one numbers round, probably a case of looking at the less helpful options first..

I ran into problems throughout the week, with Tuesday and Wednesday being decent days.  That said, I managed to avoid declaring any invalid answers despite some strong tempations, and on Monday that was a minor victory all of its own.
