Weekly summary: Episodes 171 to 175

A full monty from David on Monday kept me from equalling there, and although I got close a couple of times later on I just was not able to bridge the gap.  Top quality solving from David and Lily, as ever.

As predicted, Tamara won her last two games to become the third champion to successfully retire this series.  Her consistent high scoring -- only once below fifty, and that was with a forty-eight -- gets her a well-deserved top spot, edging out Barry, while Bretty drops off the leaderboard.  The challengers won each game in the rest of the week, but maybe next week will bring a bit more longevity to the champion.

There were two full monties on offer this week, with Tuesday's one having three possible nines from the same letter mix.  Monday's one was hard to spot, at least for me, but David did well to find it.

My letters performance dropped a bit this week, while my numberwork was better -- just the one maximum dropped on those.  Wednesday continues to be my trouble day, substantially below my results from the other days.
