Club Results 11/3

1st Bryan Benwitz rebounded from a 1-3 record the previous week to pull off an undefeated 4-0 +433 record this week. He ended Thomas Reinke's 12-game winning streak in emphatic fashion, emerging triumphant from their encounter holding up a scoresheet which read "Bryan: 496 - Thomas: 280". Bryan's bingos in that game were CLOUDING, ASSORTED, and EGGLESS. A victory against the other twin, by a score of 421-403, was less impressive from a pure dominance perspective, but Bryan's 149-point triple-triple of DIASTEMA was impressive in its own way, even if the club didn't collect enough money to pay out the $5 triple-triple prize (not to mention the $5 prize for ending a 10-game winning streak).

2nd Thomas Reinke went 3-1 with a smaller-than-expected +34 spread, although readers of the above paragraph will know exactly why Thomas' cumulative point total was so small. His highest-scoring game was a 495-401 barn-burner against Dennis Lloyd, who suffered his highest-scoring loss of this club season. By way of bingos, Thomas got down RATHOLE, RENTIERS, and AUDIENT (all quite high-probability), while Dennis got down AERATION and BADNESS (the latter for a cool 96 points). And while Thomas may have had his 12-game winning streak brutally terminated by Bryan, he made up for it by extending his winning streak against his brother to an improbable eight games, this time winning 410-341. Sources close to the situation report that tension in the Reinke household has never been higher.
