Default [Dixonary] Round 2905 (RATHE) Results


This round ended in a three-way tie among Judy Madnick (def. 9), Mike Shefler (def. 3) and the dictionary (def. 7) with five points each. Since Judy's score was natural, Mike's wasn't, and the dictionary is dealing-impaired, Judy gets the next deal while Mike is the traditional "winnah." And, thanks to Ryan McGill's last-minute generosity, no definition received a zero.
