As Victor said, those were nice words, Mike. Unfortunately, the Macquarie does not list SLANTY, let alone SLANTIER. Neither does it have AUTOFEED, which I think was a brilliant spot on your part. To round off the woe, it doesn't even have CONTESSA. If you had gone on the show and encountered this round it would have been one of the unluckiest in the show's history.

Louise: Nice work to see HYDRATED, even if it was a letter short. I was nowhere near seeing the HYDRATE option.

There have been great mixes for full monties recently.

1. SAINTLIER
2. RETINOL
3. 1-away: 940 = (9*7*3-1)*5
4. DEFEAT
5. REMARK
6. 111 = 75 + 25 + 9 + 2
7. x CONTESSA, CAPSTONES was excellent.
8. 949 = (8+6)*75 - 100 - 10 + 9
9. 229.7s - DEHYDRATE
