October Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to long time player OzGuff on winning our October Monthly Tournament. Here is some info about OzGuff:

OzGuff here. Real name is Graeme (as in “Crackers”). Born in Australia where my parents and sister still live but have now lived in the US more than half my life. Married with two kids; daughter is a sophomore at Duke and son is a high school junior. (We are also currently hosting an exchange student from South Korea.) Work in financial services so I set my own hours. When I am not playing WWF I am out hiking in the mountains of western North Carolina. I also spend a lot of time geocaching. [Check it out at geocaching.com! It is free, lots of fun, and might get you out walking in the woods.] And when not playing WWF or geocaching I am likely coaching the swim team where my kids went/go to school. (Defending two-time state champs!) [I swam when I was younger. And thinner. 1982 Commonwealth Games in Brisbane was my highlight. Just missed making the 1984 Olympic team. Oh well.]

Have been playing Scrabble for decades, and WWF since August 2011; my first Monthly was September 2011. Have really enjoyed playing/competing these last two years, and have acquired a number of pretty good friends in the process. And Mark. Playing on a regular basis against such formidable opponents has really increased my vocabulary. [Well, not my vocabulary per se, as I rarely have a need to use NGWEE in everyday conversation.] I tend to play wide open. By that I mean that I will usually play a higher point word that leaves opportunities for my opponent rather than playing defensively. Sometimes it works. Sometimes.

Thanks to Debby and Don for keeping this website up and running! And thanks to all who I have played over the last few years! It has been a hoot!

The three games with Danny Gluva were all pretty close! And the chats were enjoyable!

Congratulations to our September Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to steveswei for winning our September Monthly Tournament. He even had to play in the Interim Round to make it to the finals. Here are some words from our winner:

My name is Steve; I live in Brighton, MI, a small community 45 miles NW of Detroit. My wife Melinda and I will celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary next year. My wife runs a medical transcription business and I work for her, in addition to staying busy writing as a freelance author on a variety of subjects. The work experience provides me with a broad vocabulary that helps when playing WWF, the challenge for me has been learning game strategy. The great players on this site have schooled me many times on the finer points of word placement. It took me a while to learn that the best word you can form is not always your best play.

Thanks to Debby and Don for running this site and providing us the opportunity to engage in competitive game play; kudos to Debby for making it to the semi-finals this month.

The finals against Manav were a real battle; in game one I was able to bingo on my second rack with “BONUSES” and had another bingo ready to go that he blocked with “QUAI,” after that he slowly pulled away to a win. The next two games came down to the end with me trying to hold onto leads I was lucky to have built early. Manav made some really brilliant moves, he played “HYP” to form “PONCE” and I could not block his addition of a “D” on the end of the word when he played “TUNNED” for a double on both words. Late in game 3 he played “DRIFT” when he knew I had no “A” or blank and followed up with “ADRIFT” while using his “A” and blank to form “CALIPH,” hitting the triple space. On my last full rack I was able to bingo with “STRINGED” to hold on for the deciding win.

August Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to newcomer kjdjtx for being our August Monthly Winner. Screenshots to follow.

Here is some info about our winner:

My name is Kevin.  I am the proud husband of 1 awesome wife
(Denice) of 20 years and 4 great children (ages 12, 10, 8 and 2).
We live the great area of Texas called the Metroplex (Dallas/Fort
Worth area).

I was having a hard time finding WWF players that could challenge
me so I decided to search for a WWF tournament site.  Well, this
is where I ended up at back in July.  I had not expected to come
anywhere near winning the monthly tournament, but here I am…in
shock and amazed.

My wife asked me if she is going to have me back now.  Well, that
is to be seen!  :)

Thank you to the WWF.net admins and all the great players I faced
along the way.  The players I faced were very encouraging and I am
sure we will meet again…unless my wife has her way!  LOL

July Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to jfmstern for winning our July Monthly Tournament. We will post screenshots of the games shortly. Here is a bio from our winner:

“Hi. My name is Jon. I live outside of Philadelphia with my wife and two daughters.  I’ve been playing in this tourney for a few years now and it always seemed like winning it would be near impossible. There are so many challenging players, many with much larger vocabularies than me. I’ve been able to learn a lot from the competition and was fortunate to receive some timely luck this month.
I appreciate all the time and energy the admins put forth to make this tournament happen. It’s a great format!
Thank you and thanks to all the great and friendly players.”

Peace!
