Club Results 10/24


1ST - In a fine UPSCALE move, Expert Charles Reinke's 4-0 +385 moved him to Numero Uno in the club standings. Cleverly, he bingoed out in his final game with CUTESIER as he turned back Shayla Dunn 479-404. Shayla has been blowing the doors off of most her opponents this year with her 416 per game average, a level achieved in part as she slips in a few choice phoneys, such as her "OCTORITE" play this week.

2nd - Thomas Reinke succumbed only to Shayla in a 6 point setback, at 331 to her 337 score, before righting his ship to a 3-1 +192 final tally. That included Thomas's go out bingo of BUNKOED for 473 against Michael David's impressive 469 score. Losing with a 469 put Michael in 5th place on the All-Time Highest Losing Scores chart, as he unexpectedly came face to face with a suddenly truer meaning of BUNKOED! : 0

3RD - Shayla Dunn's likewise solid 3-1 +123 earned 3rd place position as she continued her fine play...she managed a split against the Reinke's, dropping Game 4 404-479 to Charles and his bingo barrage of RAINOUT, ADROITER, NARGILES and for good final measure, CUTESIER through an exposed S tile.


1st - Intermediate June Scott shot out of the starting gate with 2 straight wins with scores of 342 and 387 before dropping her last two games including a narrow three point loss to Barb Besadny (338-341) but still finished with a 2-2 +92 night.

2nd - Sue Goldstein's 2-2 -69 took home the 2nd place claims...Sue closed with a 367-285 game including TACKIER as June Scott graciously stayed and played their fourth game, keeping the club matchups at One-Vs.-One for the only such pairing of the night.

3rd - Sharlie Miiura used the bingo play of DRAFTING to give her the edge vs. Harwinder Dowd 347-323 as She rolled to a 1-1 3rd place final position.
