Sam Cappleman-Lynes Tight so far!
Thomas Carey "He didn't lose a game last year."
Matthew Tassier Prime averaged 170 last year, and 170 so far this year, so early signs are that the players (particularly Bradley, 170 last year) are getting better.
Tim Down Sorry for leaving it so late, Maus, too dopey to play it today. Tomorrow it is.

Thomas Carey all good my dude dw
Tim Down I was always struggling with this one and needed a bit of luck. In the end I missed a couple of gettable ones and that was that. Well played everyone. Thanks for organising, Matthew, it's always one of my favourite tournaments.
Matthew Tassier Bradley scores the first ever WL omelette 200 to put on a Strongest Link performance that takes him pretty close to Elliott in total tournament points.
Matthew Tassier 7th place goes to Tim, his best result in WL numbers so far, falling short in a much higher scoring round than this one last year. 6th place is Sam finishing as the top debutant this year, beating Prime and ending one agonising point behind 3 of the qualifiers. Tim and Sam, you are the Weakest Links. Goodbye!
Sam Cappleman-Lynes Thanks Matthew, I've had a lot of fun - already looking forward to next time.
Notes from the organizer: In a surprising anti-twist, round twenty-two is identical to last year, being an Omelette game against Apterous Prime. As a guide, last year 150 points was enough to qualify as one of the 5 players to progress to the penultimate round. For Omelette make sure you use all 6 numbers in your solution and bear in mind that the rules nowadays allow you to use up some of the numbers in "dead ends". Prime will initially choose 3 large numbers and will solve almost every round exactly. He didn't lose a game last year.
The TWO 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).
