Re: Ask Graeme?

Hi Graeme, What is the biggest decrease in score of a champion from one game to the next, in which they had won both of the games? .This is applicable to all types of 15R's. I'd have a punt and say it was Jodine Lawrence from S79, who got 117 in her debut, and 75 in the next game, but thought I'd as...

David hasn't half had some close runs! Made for good television, though. He has had his strong conundrum game to thank. Found the handshake gesture at the end rather amusing- guess it's default for some contestants to offer a handshake at the end, but not the best idea given the climate then!
