A very interesting round!

Not least because myself, @gdale1 @4BetLite and @Wriggle tried to play a 3rd joker. NORTY!

Just so you know:
@Wriggle played his against Preston & Burton
@4BetLite played his against Burton & Newcastle
@gdale1 played his against Blackburn & Burton

I'll pop up a list of who still has jokers available when I kick the next round off.

Anyway, @gdale1 was only 107 out but suffered the over-guess penalty and his well-time joker does not count which means @Army villain snuck into first place, just 143 out (no penalty). Your first win? Well done!

@gaffer85 collected the most points (46) having played a legitimate joker. Both he and @Army villain are well off the pace as far as the title race goes but they've obviously played a huge part in the overall leaderboard!

So, the absolute rankings (without jokers) this round are:
1. @Army villain
2. @Wriggle
3. @gaffer85
4. @gdale1
5. @Villa_Dan


Top ten overall:
1. @Fpuppys - 312 points*
2. @gdale1 - 312 points**
3. @NARLA24 - 274 points
4. @De Kuip - 272 points
5. @Boldfinger - 271 points
6. @DelboyVilla - 261 points
7.  @4BetLite - 248 points
8. @VillaBill - 241 points
9. @FoxyAV - 225 points
10. @LVBrit - 217 points


* 19,109 out overall
** 22,391 out overall

Thanks for posting Trotters.
Looks like I'm immediately underneath NARLA with a boldfinger right up my ass. Not a comfortable position.....

You should be so lucky. Lol.
That may feel like a finger but it's the one with no nail on.

My guess this week is 30,501

do we get 2 jokers or 1?? if we get 2 i'll play one of them but if it's only 1 then i'll hold on to it...


You get 2 mate, so I'll put you down for one this round

You sure i've already played 2 as i asked before the Preston game about having 1 or 2 so i could save one for later...

So we have an ambiguous issue here. Because we do get two jokers so I took it that you elected to play one of them. But I'm guessing you'd forgotten that you'd already played one against Burton.

So is it your fault for forgetting you'd played one or my fault for not reminding you that only had the one left?

Downside 1: If I take that joker off you, you'll lose 12 points as you did ok that round. That'll put you back to 19th place.
Downside 2: I'll have to re-calculate 5 rounds.
Upside: You'll have a new joker.

Trotters. Not up to you to check mate.
Not your fault if people don't submit their counts and not your fault if people can't add 1 + 1. Lol.

TBH it reads to me like Wriggle meant "If we get 2 jokers I'll elect to play one this round, if we only get 1 joker, then I don't want to play one this round, I'll keep until later"

As there are most definitely 2 jokers and it was always clear from day 1, it has to be that we say Wriggle used one, on that occasion.

I'm happy if others have a different opinion, or I've read it wrong, but that's how I'd say it reads, plus I have nothing to gain as although I'm having a go for fun, I can't win any prizes.

Oohh, first GTC controversy of the season*

I guess i should have worded it "do i have 1 or 2 left, if i only have one then i'll keep it..." as that's what i meant.

Don't worry about it though Trotters as its only a bit of fun and i'm not exactly challenging (although would have been some nice points with a joker in this round...
