The Tel Aviv Scrabble® Club

Club Director: Evan Cohen

Week 20 - Season 40 - 18/2/2019

There were 32 of us last week, including a few of our foreign guests from the Israeli Open, Ferenc, Alan A., Jake and Brigitte. Welcome, all!

Standings: In Aardvark, Phyllis overtook Maureen, moving into 7th. The only change in the division. In Madoqua, no fewer than 10 (!) shifters. Maxine was the biggest climber, up 6. In Zyzzyva, Gila managed a wee climb.

Scores: No records broken, not a single 500+. There was one 1400+ triple (Naomi), one 1300+ (Omri), and five 1200+ (Ferenc, Jake, Phyllis, Nancy, Maxine). Not impressed at all!

Player of the Week:  Maxine had a great week, winning three and climbing more places than anyone. Naomi and Omri continue their WWW, pulling away from the pack below them. But the award goes to Angela. With three wins and nice scoring, Angela is Player of the Week. Well done!
