RESULTS 4-25-19 Superscrabble Club Games

Standard

CONGRATULATIONS to our two champions this month:  RENÉE KAHN and AMNON MEYERS. Wow! RENÉE had more rewards today per dollar = 70, winning 3 games, played 8 category words, and 5 bingo words. AMNON also won 3 games, found a high non-bingo word = 104 points, and played 10 bingos. CONGRATS also to the following winners:  ALAN STERN won the H-Game=1276 during the 3rd round, and the High-CUM=3322 after 3 games. This is the 2nd time that ALAN won the high-game and high-cum awards. The high-point bingo word was played by FERN TRAUSCH, FOXINESS=170, and TINA UDELSON had the mostest bingo words=17 played during the 3-game periodTHANKS to some angels who dropped a total of $25 for their voluntary contribution; this will be spread out to include the total amount for distribution award pot to be used on our next Superscrabble Club games.  No birthday celebrants showed up this April month.  So here’s wishing Lawren and Marcia HAPPY BIRTHDAY (belated or upcoming) from all of us.

The following results are posted.  See the blog site: superscrabble.wordpress.com.  Please note that the 3-game winners cannot win the H-game and H-cum awards to exercise fairness to all players.  SOME numbers can be determined only after carefully looking at the score sheets and comparing the results, hence the delay in the awards (Examples:  Award for HCum, HGame, HBingo, and HNBingo.  Awards will be in an envelope waiting to be picked up on our next meeting.
