Default [Dixonary] Round 2912 MAGDALEON Results

I had high hopes of a low score for MAGDALEON, but seven of you were drawn
to it like wasps round a jar of jam, guessing correctly that it was the
medical roll. Shani Naylor got an unnatural 7 for her
uncomfortable-sounding hairstyle, winning her the next deal. Three
players, Dan Widdis, Johnny Barrs, and Mike Shefler, tied for coveted
second place with 4 unnatural points apiece.

Over to you, Shani.
