Club Results 9/29

1st Bryan Benwitz didn't quite make it to ten straight wins, but he did bring his "not-loss" streak to thirteen games by recording a 3.5-.5 +295 record. The .5 in Bryan's record came from a high-scoring 466-466 tie against Charles Reinke in the first game. Bryan had four bingos (SEDUCERS, ALIENERS, RAILROAD, and REUNITER) in that one, but wasn't quite able to get past Charles and his two bingos (DEMINERS and GIGATONS). Thus, the winning streak was technically broken, meaning that Bryan's personal record-longest streak of 11 wins (set in 2018) remains untouched. Work on the next winning streak began immediately after that disappointment, with Bryan reeling off scores of 486, 486 (again), and 444 in his remaining three games, all victories.

2nd Thomas Reinke went 3-1 with a hefty +489 point spread. Most of his spread came in his first two games, a 502-282 win over Michael David and a severe 556-215 beating administered to Dennis Lloyd. Thomas' five bingos across those two games were RATTIER, HORSILY, POSTMEN, ENDASHES, and a triple-triple CORONATE. The margin of victory was significantly less comfortable for Thomas in round three as he barely escaped with the win against his brother Charles, 457-451. Things went south in round four when he was soundly defeated by Bryan Benwitz, 366-444.

We welcomed newcomer Sara McLaughlin who is a new transplant to the Madison area. She put up a fight in all her games, played six total bingos, and notched a big win against longtime Scrabbler Sue Goldstein, 468-262.
