Club Results 10/20

1st Thomas Reinke went a perfect 4-0 with a numerically pleasing spread of +500. His current winning streak stands at seven games, so he could reach ten wins in a row as soon as our next meeting. Of note, Thomas averaged 459 points per game despite scoring a lowly 336 against Helen Flores (who scored just 287 in her losing effort, but did get the only bingo of the game, REWRITE). The highlight of Thomas' night came in the first round, as he easily dispatched Bryan Benwitz by a score of 520-390. In that game, Thomas played the word of the week CHURCHES - the word rates poorly on the normal metrics for word of the week candidacy (obscurity, impressiveness of the find), but rates well on the irony factor, given that it was played on the one week a month that we don't meet in a church.

2nd Charles Reinke put together a 3-1 +243 record that frustratingly included a fifth-straight loss against his brother, this time by a score of 382-441. On a happier note, Charles notched a fourth-straight win against Bryan Benwitz (after suffering four straight losses and a tie), 380-351. Charles had a neat 100-point QUARREL to open the game, but barely held on as Bryan played AEOLIAN and spent the final few turns building up to a bingo that ended up not fitting on the board. Charles also enjoyed a comfortable 432-321 win over Sara McLaughlin in their first (but probably not last) over-the-board encounter.
