Weekly summary: Episodes 186 to 190

I had a vastly more consistent week this time, always being close to David and Lily even if I only managed to equal them once.  That's always something to be happy about, though!  I've had a pretty good run this series, although I think it's safe to say I would not have done nearly as well at the time of airing.  Keeping this blog going has unquestionably improved my game.

Tony went all the way, taking the top spot as he had seemed likely to do, and pushing Greg off the leaderboard.  Robyn won on Thursday, but then lost to Kylie; there's not enough games left before the finals for Kylie to get onto the leaderboard, so the top eight for the finals are now determined.

Only one full monty was available this time, a sharp decline after the five from last week.  A numbers round proved to be too tough for Lily on Tuesday, and the rareness of that demonstrates just how very good she is.  There was also an impossible target on Thursday, but there's not much to be said about that.

I feel decent about my letters performance this week, but I did drop a couple more numbers maxima than I should have -- I just have to spot those better options within time.  I did solve all five conundrums within time, although Gillian did just beat me to the answer on Wednesday.

Maximums: L45333
