THIS WEEK AT THE CLUB…
*** Standings, Season 74: Wk 11 of 25 – July 16, 2019 ***
The scores were close, and Peta planned her endgame carefully. She had Q and U on her rack, but the Q wouldn’t go down and she needed the U to play. No matter: she also held a blank. She played off the U, made her score… and overdrew. Opponent David S selected three of her eight tiles to correct the overdraw — among them the precious blank. Back to the bag it went back (later to reemerge on David’s rack), the Q never got played, and the game was David’s. Proposed and disposed… § It wasn’t however, all plain sailing for him and the Q this week. Later that evening, in his game with Bernard, he couldn’t resist the 126 points garnered by QUIPLESS, played through two double-word scores. His neologism was challenged (use it in a sentence!), and along with its disappearance from the board went his win by a scant 21 points. § Yaakov had a happier time of it. He became the Club’s 163rd player in 1,836 sessions to reach a total score that topped 500 points.
