Recently over the Bank Holiday weekend, one of our members, Andy Becher, travelled to Nottingham to take part in the British Matchplay Scrabble Championship. To see how he got on in the A division of 25 MAIN GAME event click here http://www.centrestar.co.uk/tsh/16bmsc/html

 

 

 

Andy also played in the A division of the 10 game EXTRA event.  The STANDINGS show how each round unfolded of that event click here http://www.centrestar.co.uk/tsh/16bmscex/html

 

 

 

 

 

Most rounds of the two tournaments had an annotated game. These enable you to see the racks of each player just before they play, giving you the opportunity to decide what you would play in their position. http://www.centrestar.co.uk/tsh/16bmsc/html/annotations.html
