Re: Spoilers for Tuesday September 16th 2014 (S71 P46)

fantastic debut Paul... especially to come back from such a deficit early in the game too and win by such a margin.. an exciting quality game.. well played to both players... This has been a very strong series so far.. I hope you win a lot more games and make the next stage :)

CO Bristol???? who is interested

the Bristol Co Event is where it all started years ago and it would be great to reintroduce one next year Looking at the CO calendar to ensure it doesn't clash with another date, a nice date would be Saturday 28th February 2015 (everyone will have been paid). At this stage, I would like an idea as t...

Re: Spoilers for Friday August 15th 2014 (S71 P29)

I did hesitate a little with the conundrum as it did seem a bit too easy. I was happy to win one show so to get that score surprised me a lot. I agree with Mark there are bound to be some other great players in the rest of the series so if I make the quarters I'll be incredibly happy. Amazing score...

Great points well made Joyce! I also don't think it is nice to accuse someone of cheating on such flimsy evidence.. I am sure the Countdown Team would deal with any areas on the show where underhand tactics are being used and I am very confident that this is not the case here. Besides, I can attest ...
