Day 1 Fenton

I went 5-2 today and I was very pleased with my play. Both losses were as far as I know unwinnable and didn't even pass 300 in one. I ended up second in the division (70 bucks) and also won the high win prize with 517 (10 bucks). That was in the last game of the tournament where I got 4 bingos, my opponent also won high loss that game with 398, so it was quite a high scoring game. Coolest play of the day, EOLOPIl(E) for 70 (5 vowel 8's have come in very handy), it was held but not challenged since my opponent had lost the turn before challenging SALTEST. A bunch of people went to a local restaurant after to watch MSU play in the final four, since its sort of the local team everyone went crazy when they won. Tomorrow is the real challenge, the open late bird. I hope I play as well there as I did today and pick up some good rating. Off to play poker...

Very nice going, Tyler, and thanks for posting on here. I having been checking CGP, but nothing is up there. Hope your bad-second-day theory gets blown to bits today!

Sounds like a great first day! What a crazy word, "eolopile"? Hoping to hear as much for day 2. Club meeting Tues. instead of Mon. E-mail from Joetta.
