Weekly summary: Episodes 119 to 123

It was a pretty good week, although I was only able to match David and Lily once.  I nearly did so on Monday, but was too slow on the conundrum.  On Tuesday and Friday I was just a point behind (thanks to some good solving from David), and on Thursday I did manage to match them.  Wednesday was really the only day I was rather off the pace, and I did pick up the consolation prize of outdoing Lily in one numbers round.

Jack was beaten in his fifth game, then Peter lost to Oli.  Oli swept the rest of the games, sometimes in quite one-sided fashion.  We'll see him in the finals, I'm sure.

David found three full monties this week (and I was happy that I matched him there).  One obscure one eluded us, though.  A difficult numbers round on Wednesday proved troublesome, but aside from that it was smooth sailing for Lily.

I was close to maximal games three times this week, and can take comfort from David missing the maximal options in the round I dropped (although he did find a better word once).  I was too slow for Monday's conundrum, but the rest fell into line, and the numbers maxima were right up there (with the exception on Wednesday that also eluded Lily).  All in all, a lot to be happy about.
