Default [Dixonary] Round 2885 JINKER - Results

In round 2885, Tim Lodge earned top spot with 5 points for his definition "steel scrap or direct
reduced iron added to the furnace in some steelmaking processes", and Chris Carson and Dan Widdis
are joint runners-up and true winners with 4 points each.

The true definition was 6: "a wheeled conveyance for moving heavy logs", which 7 perceptive players
guessed - not my best score!

Ryan McGill gets 2 dealer points for a definition that was lost in the ether.
