Bradley Horrocks Three going out at this stage! That IS nasty.
Keith C Williams My "Nice" on your comment should be read as "Nasty"
Gevin Chapwell I don't know what score will be needed but I'm happy enough because I misclicked one of the rounds but still managed to solve it with the remaining numbers. 174 looks a lot better than 164.
Matthew Tassier 154 is the highest previous score for a Weakest Link in nasty, but I suspect that could be beaten this year.
Gevin Chapwell With this being the final 10 and with 3 to go out, I wouldn't be confident with anything less than 180!
Keith C Williams Watch Matthew throw in a "bonus" Jnr Numbers Attack. 200 points might not be enough!
Keith C Williams Yikes… Plum nicks a late one from me to add insult to injury
Gevin Chapwell I had weird dreams last night about making it through / not making it through this round. I didn't think I cared that much!
Keith C Williams I went into a funk for a day or two after my poor showing here, so I completely understand… and, strangely, being on tenterhooks is still better than knowing you're toast. Fingers crossed you make it through!
Chris Butler Well that's the end of the road for me and after riding my luck for a while I can hardly complain. I'm now hoping that final player also beats me so that my weakest link placings are a pleasing 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th! It's easy for me to claim that my form hasn't been as good as in other years, but I honestly think that my 'early' exit is mainly due to the opposition being much stronger this year than any other year so far. Good luck to all still in the mix and I look forward to competing against you all soon in some other tourney or other :) Thanks again Matthew for hosting, flawless as always

Matthew Tassier You're welcome as always. The strength in depth at the top end of the tournament is definitely high this year.
Matthew Tassier Perfect play from Tim and Edward, with Strongest Link Edward registering the first Nasty score of 200 in WL numbers history.
Matthew Tassier 10th place this year goes to Sam S., who can be very proud of fighting through this far, up 27 places on last year's finish. 9th place is Keith, hopefully over his funk now, achieving a top 10 finish for the second year in a row. 8th place formet champion Chris remains one of only two players to finish in the top 10 every year this has been running, but misses out on completing his single digit odd-number position collection. So, Sam, Keith and Chris you are the Weakest Links. Goodbye!
Sam Shepherd That round was always going to be tough for me, I need more practice to get used to those Nasty large numbers. But I'm really chuffed to have made it to the top 10 - much further than I expected to get! Good luck to the remaining players, it's shaping up to be a very tight and competitive finale. And thanks for hosting Matthew, it's a fun tournament to play in.
Keith C Williams Yes, the funk is gone now. Thanks so much for organizing this once again, Matthew — looking forward to the next one! Best of luck to the remaining entrants.
Notes from the organizer: We're now down to the top 10 players in this year's tournament. For them, Round 21 will be a Nasty Numbers Attack against Apterous Plum. Large numbers are changed to 12, 37, 62 and 87 and with 6 small not an option Plum will stick with 1 large number. This may well make for a high scoring round, and therefore little margin of error available in avoiding the Weakest Link spots.
The THREE lowest scoring players in this round will leave the tournament. If there is a tie for lowest scores then margin of victory/defeat will be taken into account amongst tied players followed, if necessary, by total score in the tournament so far (see notes by matches).
