Game One: Yvonne Lobo, 42nd seed
Game Thirteen: Mark Gooley, 54th seed
an orphan D on the board. I make DEAERATE. Mark challenges and I get another shot at the bag, making ORBY for 30. I have the draw and the opportunity and the board is wide open. Final score: 365-308. I'm 8-7.
King of the Hill: Abraham Thomas, 38th seed
Despite 20 bingos for and 21 against, I have a shiny new rating of 1231. No money, but I'm very satisfied.
