The Tel Aviv Scrabble® Club

Club Director: Evan Cohen

Week 02 - Season 40 - 15/10/2018

Only 21 of us showed up last week (but with a minyan in Bordeaux, that’s not bad…). Welcome, all!

Standings: In Aardvark, Evan squeaks into the top slot. There were 8 shifters, the biggest of whom was Ma’or, up 4 into 5th. In Madoqua, hardly any shifts. Only the bottom three switched positions. In Zyzzyva, Natalie still holds onto the top slot, though 5 different players shifted.

 

Playoffs: Only two matches tonight. Evan won his semi-final match and will meet the winner between Omri and Naomi (currently 2:1) in the finals. In Madoqua, Karen made in impressive comeback, and after being down 2:0, Karen won the next three games and will face the winner between Phyllis and Sharon (1:1).

 

Scores: Josh had his best ever triple. There was one 1400+ triple (Josh), one 1300+ (Ma’or) and one 1200+ (Nancy). There were also two 500+ scores (Ma’or, Josh). Not too impressed.
