Phew - at least I can claim still to be the second best contestant from Earley...

Anyone get the first numbers?

I guess Martin was trying to say 66x4-2 was a quicker way to 262, though I did (100+4)x(75/25)-50.

Was on 863 in the time, but out of time:
((50-4)*75-6)/4=861

Most of the conundrum was spent thinking 'Oh crap, I need this for 800!'

Congrats on making Octochampdom! Well deserved. :)
It was a very enjoyable run. It's not often that you are guaranteed two 4Ls per day... made for a memorable set of shows, and challenging to play along with.

Aye, massive congrats Noel on octochampdom - richly deserved and you've been enjoyable to watch! :)

Loved the way you got to 262...you had to go out with a bang didn't you? ;)

Look forward to seeing you in the finals!

Nice. Maybe it's best not to know your total score when you're playing! I was surprised no-one in the audience got it either, being an ING word. I suppose the removal of the final E before adding the ING makes it trickier to spot.

But very well done, Noel. I look forward to seeing you in the quarters!
