Weekly summary: Episodes 271 to 275

I started the week with a narrow win over Brydon, who played very well, registering the highest score we've seen from a contestant so far in these re-runs.  Thereafter the margins were solidly in my favour, although I never quite managed to catch up with David and Lily.  The week ended reasonably strongly, with Thursday's game seeing me just one point behind them, and Friday's lacking just the conundrum solution to equal.

Brydon continued his pattern of increasing scores, registering 70 points on Monday's game.  He finally broke the trend on his final night but still managed the half century as he successfully retired.  Niall put up a good fight on Tuesday, but ended up just short of the mark.  Angela had a brief stint as champion, and then Paul took over to finish out the week.  The limited leaderboard looks like this:

There were four full monties to be found this week, and David did so.  That was just one short of the "Clayton's" grand slam that he has been searching for.  I don't think he ever did get that.  Lily solved everything this week, which must be her equivalent; it is an admittedly easier task, however.

Missed Full Monties0
Tough Numbers0
Impossible Numbers0

My maximum counts for the main rounds were the same as last week, just shuffled around a bit.  My conundrum solving was still decent, but failing to solve Friday's conundrum cost me a tie with David and Lily.
