Series 84 Player Analysis and Discussion Thread.

Post by Tom S »

As per, I shall now get started with the stats analysis of the current finalists of this series.

Starting off with Ahmed Mohamed:
Current Seed: 1
Wins: 8
Points: 927 (115.9 per game)
Total Maxes 93/120 (77.5%)

Letters Maxes: 61/80 (76.25%)
Badged Words:(7+ length maxes not previously submitted as a max by a contestant on Countdown before at time of broadcast): 14 :o
Medalled Words: (7+ length maxes not previously submitted as a max by a contestant or DC on CD before at time of broadcast): 21 :o :o
Badged: Lioniser, Gelcoat, Poseurs, Robinia, Ologist, Dewiness, Saintlier, Traduces (joint accolade shared with his opponent), Spearmen, Weirdest, Renewals (joint accolade shared with his opponent), Leaguers, Teardrop, Tameness
Medalled: Medigap, Emplaces, Vomitus, Morinite, Caesura, Ladette, Bolection, Albergos, Operons, Elegiast, Ovenable, Airscape, Unroofed, Armloads, Maestria, Otariid, Piscina, Aquorins, Headage, Biosonar, Echinus

Numbers Maxes: 26/32 (78.2%)
6S: 2/4 (50%)
1L: 15/17 (88.2%)
2L: 9/11 (81.8%)
3L: N/A
4L: N/A

Conundrum Maxes: 7/8 (87.5%)
7 Solved, 1 Lost, 0 Unsolved

Very impressive stats for Ahmed, who is undoubtedly the favourite to win this series. However, we have 1 (potentially 2) finalists who could give him a very hard time if they were to meet in the finals....

Stats for Florence Cappleman-Lynes....

Current Seed: 2
Wins: 8
Points: 860 (107.5 per game)
Total Maxes: 62/120 (51.7%)

Letters Maxes: 31/80 (38.75%)
Badged Words: 3
Medalled Words: 2
B: DInkiest, Reflame, Agility
M: Sprinkle, Populated

Numbers Maxes: 23/32 (71.9%)
6S: 2/4 (50%)
1L; 8/11 (72.7%)
2L; 8/8 (100%!)
3L: 4/6 (66.7%)
4L: 1/3 (33.3%)

Conundrum Maxes: 8/8 (100%!)
8 Solved, 0 Lost, 0 Unsolved

Florence proved herself to be a very capable player, and went into the record books for becoming the 1st female octochamp to solve all 8 conundrums. She also recently gained a 2000+ rating on Apterous, so could prove a tricky opponent against the current #1 seed.

Both Ahmed and Florence have had one crucial conundrum each also.

Jeremy had an entertaining run which saw him put up against some good players. Particularly enjoyed his unusual approach to the numbers solutions. Look forward to seeing how he'll do in the finals!

Stats for Matt Gould:

Current Seed: 4
Wins: 8
Points: 680 (85 per game)
Total Maxes: 35/120 (29.2%)

Letters Maxes: 15/80 (18.75%)
Badged Words: 1

Conundrum Maxes: 3/8 (37.5%)
3 Solved, 1 Lost, 4 Unsolved

Matt experienced several comebacks during his run which will put him in good stead for the finals. If I were a betting man, I'd say that he'll end up facing Jeremy in the QF, which will make for an exciting game between 2 consistently good numerists.

Stats for Jasamrit Rahala:

Current Seed: 5
Wins: 7
Points: 727 (90.9 per game)
Total Maxes: 45/120 (37.5%)

Letters Maxes: 19/80 (23.75%)
Badged Words: 1
Medalled Words: 2
B: Diluters
M: Tushies, Scowling

Numbers Maxes: 23/32 (71.9%)
6S: 1/3 (33.3%)
1L; 15/19 (78.9%)
2L; 4/5 (80%!)
3L: 3/3 (100%!)
4L: 1/2 (50%)

Conundrum Maxes: 3/8 (37.5%)
3 Solved, 1 Lost, 4 Unsolved

Jasamrit narrowly missed out on becoming octochamp #5 this year, which would have placed him as seed 4 if he had done so. He has the same amount of numbers maxes as Florence, which would also make for an interesting game on the numbers front if they were to face each other.

Stats for Roddie Bell:

Current Seed: 6
Wins: 5
Points: 575 (95.8 per game)
Total Maxes: 31/90 (34.4%)

Letters Maxes: 12/60 (20%)
Badged Words: 2
Medalled Words: 0
B: Podiums, Weathers
M: N/A

Numbers Maxes: 15/24 (62.5%)
6S: 2/3 (66.6%)
1L; 13/18 (72.2%)
2L; 0/2
3L: N/A
4L: 0/1

Conundrum Maxes: 4/6 (66.7%)
4 Solved, 1 Lost, 1 Unsolved

Roddie had his run cut short in game 6, but still had a strong run, achieving 3 centuries in his 1st 3 games. He also has a higher average score than the current #3, 4 and 5, so could potentially ruffle a few feathers in the finals....

Conundrum Maxes: 5/8 (62.5%)
5 Solved, 0 Lost, 3 Unsolved

The maths teacher's numerical skills have clearly paid off here, having some of the best numbers stats this series. After his stonking 2nd debut, it very well looks like an Ahmed-Stu final is on the cards, but, he'll face a tough opponent in his QF, who I'd imagine will give him a run for his money.

Stats for Janet Noe:

Current Seed: 8
Wins: 5
Points: 538 (89.7 per game)
Total Maxes: 29/90 (32.2%)

Letters Maxes: 17/60 (28.3%)
Badged Words: 1

4L: 0/2

Conundrum Maxes: 2/6 (33.3%)
2 Solved, 1 Lost, 3 Unsolved

Janet had a good run, and an especially good debut performance. She has the misfortune to run into the #1 seed for her QF, but has shown that she is a capable player and I'm sure will play well come Wednesday's episode.
