Round 9

Finally caught up with a lot of the grunt work. Everyone's paid up for skins up to round 8. Highlights so far include Wiegand's SCHERZOS for 96 and Cardia's SOLECIZE for 114. SCHERZOS just beat out Hersom's THEOGONY. Two such great words in one round. High play so far is Haughney's INCREATE for 149 (round 4).

A few little hitches to start off the day. At least three games I counted without equipment. As my assistant Elyse purportedly said, you don't go to war without your guns.

Yesterday was a bit of a treat in that so many young players were at table 1, highlighted by a showdown between Sam Rosin and Conrad Bassett-Bouchard. Right now it's Lipkin and Wiegand going at it. Wiegand, the only 7-1, Lipkin a leading 6-2.
