Default [Dixonary] Round 3092 PYKESTOLE Results

Everyone who submitted a def has voted, so I've been able to start
compiling the results a bit early.

Johnny Barrs and the Dictionary tied for first place with 7 points each.
The Dictionary and I got a D7 for the Easter Monday Yorkshire game, but is
not available to deal, so Johnny takes the next deal with an unnatural 7
for his armoury furniture. Alan Mallach and Shani Naylor are the fortunate
runner-up with 5 points apiece.

Over to you, Johnny!
