Matthew Tassier Hazel's score looks rather good to me, but will it end up counting?

Matthew Tassier We have an occupant for the Strongest Link throne. Well done Hazel! But I'm sure she will have more work to do soon.

Matthew Tassier With Callum all the way back in Round 1, it's Chris who can kick back and bask in his glory for today.

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier Jim cracks the century mark and has another chance today to chase the current big cheese, Callum.

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier No changes at all today so Callum can put his feet up.

Callum Todd

Callum Todd Not sure about put my feet up. I am the hunted and Jim is the hunter. This is nerve wracking!

Jim M

Jim M Really, you need me to get a score between 132 and 146 so you can have another pop at Hazel's score. Unfortunately for you I haven't shown any signs of that yet.

Callum Todd

Callum Todd I have tried to work out which permutations might lead to me having to fear Chris and Hazel and others, but it made my head hurt so I stopped.

For now, your are the sole subject of my nightmares, Jim.

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier An improved high score from Jim, with time to nab a neat gold pencil. Today Chris has the chance to chase the other scores here while Callum's reign continues for now.

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier Chris continues to stalk his prey, getting closer with another improved score, but Callum remains at the apex of the competition.

Chris Hare

Chris Hare Ah, I see you have mistaken 'limping around at the limits of my competence' for 'stalking my prey'. We apologise for the confusion.

Challenger:
John Beresford

Players currently in previous rounds:
143 Jim M
131 Callum Todd

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier Five 9-ers from Jim give him a potentially tournament-winning 143, but at the moment he has left the final round as today we will see new challenger John attempt to knock Chris off the pedestal that he may be surprised to finally find himself returning to.

143 Jim M

Weakest Link:

Player currently in a previous round:
114 John Beresford

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier John posts a score, but Jim ousts him from the final round and Chris from the top spot to claim the throne for the first time.

Matthew Tassier Strongest Link:
143 Jim M

Challenger:
Bradley Horrocks

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier The loss from the tournament of two previous finalists leaves the leaderboard pretty empty. Bradley will challenge for Jim's place in the hotseat as we approach the end of the tournament tomorrow.

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier Strongest Link:
143 Jim M

Challenger:
80 Bradley Horrocks

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier Bradley's first attempt at the final round is higher than Jim's was, but he still his a big deficit to make up as the two finalists face their final games. Well done to both for surviving all the way here!

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier So, final games are up. You both have until midnight GMT to play your games and try to improve your scores. Then, we will have a champion.

Jim M

Jim M Nice of my keystrokes not to register in R11! Though it would have made no difference other than to get my a tie rather than a loss in the individual game. Thanks, Matthew - nervous wait now.

Bradley Horrocks

Bradley Horrocks Congrats Jim! You got here early and that paid off with the tough score. Surprised to get this far myself, in truth.

Thanks Tass, epic tourney, second best on here, behind your numbers one of course ;)

Fiona T

Fiona T Congrats Jim - superbly done! Hard luck Bradley - was always going to be a tough ask - runner up a pretty awesome achievement too!

Jim M

Jim M Thanks Bradley and Fiona. Bradley - I've no doubt that with as many attempts as I had it would have been a different story, and I had my fair share of luck in other rounds with better players and scores being eliminated, or bots performing with variability. Very pleased to get my first ever tourney win on Apto after a lot of work, though :)

Most importantly: thanks so much, Matthew, for hosting a fantastic tournament. It's been quite a ride and great fun, and I can only shudder in awe at the organisational complexity that you've contended with every day. Though it's probably just another spoilage numbers attack to you!

Jim M

Jim M (Interesting to note also Bradley that we drew today 104-104 on apto, and 2-2 on the football pitch :) )

Jim M I've just realised that last comment isn't true, it was Caesar that scored 104 not me, so ignore

Matthew Tassier Final result:
CHAMPION:
143 Jim M
Runner Up:
104 Bradley Horrocks

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier Well done Brad on his improved final score in the 797th and final game of the tournament, but 143 was a huge target to have to chase, and Jim a worthy winner after many strong games through the tournament. So Jim, you are this years Strongest Link. Congratulations!

Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier A big thank you to everyone who took part with enthusiasm and made it a (somewhat involved) pleasure to run the tournament. The kind words from many you after your painful eliminations are very much appreciated. Keep an eye out for more fun/complicated/bizarre tournaments when I have the chance to run them. Goodbye! *Disturbing Wink*

Linda McGrory

Linda McGrory Congrats to Jim. This was a tough but enjoyable tournament.

Tourney round: Weakest Link Mayhem : Superfluid: Final Round - Lightning Goatblitz

<< Round 10 - Beanstalk LA

Notes from the organizer: The 11th and final round pits the two finalists against each other in the Lightning Goatblitz arena. Apterous Caeser is the willing bot victim.

The higher scoring player out of the 2 who finally find themselves in this round on the final day of the tournament will be declared the champion. If scores are tied then the winner will be decided firstly on number of maxes, then on who was first to play their game.

Each day the player currently in place as the tournament Strongest Link won't be given a new game, having earnt the right to bask in their glory. The only exception is on the last day of the tournament when both final finalists will be given one last attempt to improve their score.

For a reminder of some of the more complicated aspects of this tournament's rules please refer back to round 1.

Best of luck to the finalists!
