Monthly Round 5 Byes

By Debbyoc

instead of setting up an Interim Round, I have moved six players into Round 5. These six will play to narrow down to three to then meet up in Round 6 with the five players who have been given “byes” for Round 5. That way we will have 8 players to continue on.

Five players who won in Round 4 have been given “byes” in Round 5 based on winning in Two games or by MOV. Those players are Ik3662, Hogpower1, SoonerSelf, Total Dutch and ArabianPeacock. You will notice that I have changed your status to no winner in Round 4. I will move you five into Round 6 when Round 5 is completed.

October Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to samurai.ninja for being our October Monthly winner. I’m hoping to get a bio and the screenshots of the Final games to post here.

My name is Jay and I am originally from Australia but have been living in Japan for the past 12 years. I have been playing scrabble for around 30 years, since first being taught by my grandfather as a little fellow. I am a wwf addict. When I’m not playing these games, I am busy running my English school here in Tokyo.
I had 3 great games with Milmead and was lucky enough to have the letters go my way in the decider. I look forward to many more challenges in the future. Thanks.

Our September Monthly Champion

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to low-impact for winning the September Monthly tournament.

My name is Brendan and I live just outside of Philadelphia, PA USA with my amazing wife, incredible fraternal triplet girls (4 yrs old), our wonderful Au Pair, and feisty Yorkie-poo. I am an RN and am currently working as a Case Nurse Consultant for an insurance company in West Philadelphia. Back to school (again) for me in a graduate program in nursing where upon completion, I may find myself working as a nurse practitioner or possibly teaching (or both). I play and teach guitar, mainly kids – acoustic and electric, and have been doing so for several decades. Other than family, reading, and music, word games are my passion. I was introduced to Scrabble at a very young age and have several distinct memories of bingos I witnessed my Mother and her best friend play.

When it comes to excelling at WWF, I embrace several themes above all: rack management and rote memory of word lists. Max point plays, although tempting, are a fast way to loose valuable tiles and give your opponent a new and savory opening: not worth it. Essential word lists and bingo stems/bingos are what makes this game truly exciting for me; fortunately I have a penchant for word regurgitation. While word definitions add color (and in some cases help with the rote memory) they are not required! Who here can rattle off the definition of every 2-letter word? Then we have defense and endgame. Defense at the right time is rarely a bad idea, especially when it’s performed with rack management in the foreground. A solid endgame, possibly the most elusive aspect of this game, will turn apparent losses into comeback wins. Playing and emulating the best will enhance your game naturally. I turn you towards the elite, my good friends and jousting partners: pittsburghkid87, jfmstern, mias_dad, debbyoc, toothtamer, lwb2012, truehearted, jbeckham, dannygluva, wascallywabbit…

A hearty thanks and standing round of applause to Debby and Don for running these exhilarating tourneys and maintaining this site. We appreciate your efforts greatly!

My games with my doubles partner Jonathan were epic, as I knew they would be. Due to Jonathan’s proclivity for last minute upsets and deadly walk-off bingos, I was not comfortable until the “Congratulations” banner appeared on my iphone – twice. Luck was on my side, I was very fortunate this month to not see my racks do an extended downward spiral. Must be a glitch!

The icing on the cake of this whole experience was meeting up with Jonathan, who actually lives nearby. Although we did not do a “live finale” as Debby suggested, we certainly had some hearty laughs! Great to put a face and persona to a UN – a stand up guy he is.

Game 1:

Steady evenness gave rise to Spaniels opener, Fluorine (which managed to be both offensive and defensive), and Hardline. J vaulted back with a 99 point Groovier  but I was able to maintain. Phew…

Game 2:

75% of this game was played on ½ the board! Despite my Unmingle on bottom right and efforts to keep things as tight as possible, J opened the second half of the board late w Bitters (which followed Peeries) and then squeezed in a 52-pt Aqua several moves later. The Taser was out – I watched helplessly as he maneuvered his way to a win. Endgame baby….

Game 3:

My racks and tile timing were spot-on, I was in the pocket: first play Chapiter (after much consideration w Patchier) and Eidolons to follow…Early lead forced J’s hand and he spent both blanks w a sweet Ledgiest. Up a buck, I knew he had one last lunge holding one or two of the last remaining Ss and there it came: dwdw Silkies. POW. Fortunately I held on to a single vowel and was able to respond w GRIM for 38. Soon after that the second Congratulations banner appeared and I exhaled slowly…

J I salute you, you are one tough nut sir…
