Congrats to the super scrabblers Roy Kamen and Najat Reikes! And welcome back Tom Titus! After missing 3 months of scrabbling, Tom returned looking well and in good spirit.
Roy won 3 games, high scoring game =1182 on the 2nd round, high CM =3311, and the most bonus words played =19 bingos–again a repeat performance. Out of 19 there were two phonies (indicated with an asterisk), which we can learn from: TAHSILS, VALUATE, REUTTER, BEANPOLE, PLUTONIC, SENECIO, GRACERS*, VANITORY, VERTICAL, NEATNESS, LASTING, SUPPERS, DROOLER*, CONTESSA, TERRANE, SANGERS, RECANES, STORIES. Najat found a high-scoring bingo =125 for INTITLE.
