Club Results 10/6

1st Thomas Reinke fully demonstrated his tile-slinging mastery with a dominant 5-0 +585 performance. His best game was a 516-313 beating applied to Bryan Benwitz, which occurred simultaneously to a 430-313 win against Helen Flores. The lesson to be learned here is that 313 points is not usually enough to beat Thomas. Thomas' only score below 400 came in the final round against fraternal foe Charles Reinke, but it was still a win for Thomas, 371-354. Thomas bingoed improbably out of a rack of BDLLRT? with DIRTBALL, and also added TUNNAGES, while Charles played ECTASIS.

2nd Sara McLaughlin fittingly came in second place at her second visit to our club with a 3-1 +96 record. She started off with a five-point loss to the winning-streak-possessing Bryan Benwitz, 330-325, but after that it was smooth sailing for Sara. She took down Dennis Lloyd by a score of 388-368 thanks to a bingo of RELEASED - Dennis' bingos of IRONIES and ROCKETED (the latter for a cool 100 points) weren't quite enough to keep pace. Sara also played her inaugural phony in a 350-311 win against Sue Goldstein. LITONES* is phony, but ENTOILS and ONLIEST are good words to keep in mind for when those high-probability letters show up again.
