Default [Dixonary] Round 2942 Results: Haverhill Fever

As i compile this on a small phone, and editing is maddening to a
health-threatening degree, i will skip a few cosmetics.

Debbie (sorry, i can't find your full name at present) you take the next
deal with your 5 asterisk'd points!

Real Winnah is Tony Abell, with 4 natch. D1 with only one DQ is probably a
personal best for me.

I may not submit bluffs until i get the use of a proper PC or at least
tablet. This sprained my brain!
