RESULTS June 20, 2019 – During the Superscrabble Club Games

Standard

CONGRATULATIONS to two champions this month and to all other winners: DAVID PODER and GRETCHEN COWAN! GRETCHEN won all her games and played 2 bingos.  DAVID won 3 games and played 11 bingos.  JOEL ELKINS won the H-Game =1371 during the second round, enabling him to capture the High-CUM of 3325 after 3 games.  Four players submitted HIGH-POINT BINGO words: NAJAT for ORDERING =149, LYNN for HEMMING=88, FERN for MISTROD=170–but MISTROD is a phony, so it’s disqualified in this category; and TINA for HEGARIS=102.  AND the winner is NAJAT REIKES for 149 points. Seven players submitted HIGH-NON-BINGO words:  EVELYN – RANK=74; NAJAT – ZETA=78; RENÉE – QI=82; LYNN – MAX=76; DON – JEST=70; GARY – ZONE=94; GRETCHEN – ZORI=87.  And the winner is GARY MOSS for 94 points. FERN TRAUSCH played 14 bingo words after 3 ganes; she gets the award for the mostest bonus words played.

WELCOME to MAY JOVES for joining the funnest game in town, her first experience playing the games at the Superscrabble Club!  We’d love to see you again.

Please note that the 3-game winners cannot win the H-game and H-cum awards to exercise fairness to all players.  High Game, High Cum, High Bingo score, and High Non-Bingo word can be determined only after carefully comparing the stats card of each player.  Winners should pick up their awards in an envelope on the next scheduled meeting.
