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!

Interim Round

By Debbyoc

It is necessary to have an Interim Round after the Monthly Round 4 is completed to get the number of players down to 16. The Round is due to close in two hours and there is still one set to be reported.

Byes will be given to all the players who won in two games: Big K 68, Danny Gluva, JonathanMKaye, lwb2012, ThePi$$aDude, toothtamer, Total Dutch, and Tretony. Byes will be given to four more players with the highest MOV in the three games they played. I will have to wait until the final set is completed before I can determine who the four players will be. The remaining eight players will play in the Interim Round.

Additional byes are given to Korakochy, m A R T y 2, OzGuff, and The Angeloyster.

Match-ups for the Interim Round are:

timblamo vs Miamiheat8
The Bronx bomber vs NEURAL STASIS

Californiageorge44 vs #kowabunga#

Please play the best 2 of 3 games. You will have three days to complete this Round. Deadline 2:00 am Pacific Time Thursday October 17.

Good luck to all. Remember no outside help allowed including the in-app Vision or Word o meter.

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.
