Weekly summary: Episodes 146 to 150

This has definitely been a better week for me than the previous few.  All scores against the contestants were in the seventies, which is the first time that has happened this series (my solo totals managed it in week three, but I was beaten to the conundrum by one of the contestants).  Tuesday was particularly good, as I had a maximal game that included a word that David did not find, giving me the very rare solo victory.  I managed a tie on Wednesday, too, although that time the game turned out to be just short of optimal.  All in all, a welcome return after the long break.

The challengers won every game this week, so there was a lot of turnover.  Kannan's run came to an end on Monday, leaving him at five wins and displacing Brett from fifth place.  We're at the halfway mark (a little over it, since there are only 43 episodes left before the finals).

Another week with little to report on this front -- there was just the one full monty on Thursday.  Lily continues her excellent solving form.

This was a much better week for the maxima, with Tuesday's maximal game being the highlight.  A couple of oversights on the numbers at the end of the week, but the letters performance is getting better.
