Round 30

Shelley Ubeika couldn’t be with us today due to a knee/ankle issue. We miss you very much and heal right up, k?

Connie Creed (Philadelphia, PA) vs. Evan McCarthy (Windham, NH). They each had a bingo: her LEAVINGS and his SAUNTERS. He has a bingo on his last few racks but the board is too closed. He ends up winning, 414-327. He is 2-0 in their best of 5.

Chan Fonseka (Dublin, CA) vs. Jack Peters (Nantucket, MA). Their game in progress I see INSISTER, WRITEUPs*, and CAGIEsT. A 426-383 win for Chan.

Evans Clinchy (Boston, MA) wins his second game Joanne Craig (Australia) this round, 408-360. He is 2-0 in their series. Joanne opened with WUDU#. She later gets down PATINAs/YUGs#. I see Evans’ MATINEES, BoUVIER and QADI for 42. Other fun words: COLZA and XERIC.

Panupol Sujjayakorn (Thailand) vs. Will Anderson (Croton, NY). This is a blowout for Panupol. He got down three bingos in fast fashion: BENzOATS, PIGMENTS, PLIOCENE, and then WIZ for 63. Will managed to play CENSUSED but it was all lost on the double-double natural HARIANAS. A 600-361 win for Panupol. Will joked, “how do you like that spread? 239!”

Thomas Reinke (Middleton, WI) vs. Orry Swift (Houston, TX): DeVOTING, TRIPLINE, SORINGs, and sEAFOAM. Game in progress.

A pretty pretty game between John O'Laughlin (San Francisco, CA) vs. Austin Shin (United Kingdom). I don’t have the final score because well, the words were super pretty and distracting. All I know is Austin won decisively! FOLIATES, EMANATES, DEvOTiON, LARNIER, and the fun front extention of QUIN to HENEQUIN to the triple. Styling! John played RAMILIES and the nonbingo fun play VICEROY.

Bill Ewing (Missoula, MT) vs. Charles Dupont (Seattle, WA): I see BLOODIES and FRIENDS. After the game is over, Charles points out three of Bill’s plays in a row: MOFO (a new four!), ASCI, and QUBIT. A 432-341 win for Charles and they are now 1-1.

Daniel Novinson (San Francisco, CA) vs. Greg Feldkamp (Cleveland Heights, OH): Early on TORTILES* goes down (but it is one of those words that can’t take an S). LEARNING and dRAFTIER go down. My fav: DeTOXED on the triple lane.

John Karris (San Jose, CA) vs. Kevin Fraley (San Jose, CA): tROTTeR goes down for John and REMOVES for Kevin. Then, at the end, Kevin bingoed out with SONICATE through the T to lose. The bingo was 70 and with the 6 from John’s rack, he was up to 76 and he needed 79 to win. Too bad, so close! John’s win and they are 1-1 in their series.

Gunther Jacobi (Portland, OR) wins game two with Tod Taylor (Seattle, WA) and they are now 1-1, too, 426-369. DOGGRELS drew a challenge from Gunther and an extra turn for Tod. In the endgame, Gunther explained how that came down at the wrong time with the rack that he held, he felt he had to challenge.I see Gunther’s NOTATIVE and SYNdETA. He bingoed out with ACEROsE!
