Managed to put together a respectable performance this weekend despite drawing below average in several aspects. Wait till I draw better, suckers ! The tourney was nevertheless won by Tony who steadily ploughed through most of his games and beat Marlon in the final round.

Won: Tony, Cheah, Andy, Michael, Jin Chor, Sanjoy, Quek, Philip, Victor, Jessie, Dorai
Did not play: Jocelyn, Yen Nee, Suhaimi, Guo Cong, ZP

In the end, it's not the blanks that count, but properly balanced tiles. My 2 highest scores were without a single blank.

Game 1 vs Quek- - -

I open with MINCE/LS , but Quek strikes with ANTLIAtE (74). Not a good start, but I quickly gain ground with plays like SALLIED(68), EXTERN(31), ZOBO(58). Meanwhile he plays GARROTED(70) and several 20 pt plays. Later I challenge of his QUOIRS* and play GOOFY(36) in the same spot. he later bingos sQUIRES(76) but he is too far behind and the game is over.

W 425-379

Game 2 vs Jin Chor

He opens with QUIM(30). I have AEEEORJ and have to dump AJEE, giving him FROG(45) I get down GIMLETS(68) and ZEE(67) but still lose to YEARNER(79).

More games later if there is any interest.
