1st Charles Reinke topped a small group of four players with his impeccable 3-0 +245 performance. He started off with a strong 547-336 win against Sara McLaughlin, getting down DEFUELS, TERNIONS, OVERDRAW, and DISASTER against Sara's sole bingo of REDLINE. The torrent of bingos didn't continue into the next round, however, and Charles just barely pulled out a 406-393 win against Thomas Reinke, aided only by a high-probability bingo of STEARIN (Thomas had AVIARIES and the word-of-the-week BISTOURY, which is a type of surgical knife). Notably, Charles' victory snapped the nine-game losing streak he had suffered at the hands of his brother. It also marks the beginning of his upcoming 34-game winning streak against that same opponent.

2nd Thomas Reinke went 2-1 with a healthy spread total of +434. Both of this wins could accurately be termed "blowouts". A 462-289 win against Bryan Benwitz was a good start, but the 557-283 win against Sara McLaughlin was even better. His bingos in those two games were ISOLATE, RELISTS, SUASION, ANTIGENE, FARADIZE, PARAVANE. His play of PARAVANE shall forever stand as a testament to the utility of studying words that have three A's, a P, and a V. Next up on Thomas' bucket list: PIASAVA. Or VANASPATI.
