Default [Dixonary] Round 2876 (ABOMASUM) Results

Fellow players,

The correct definition of ABACULUS was #5, the fourth stomach of a ruminant. It received two votes, from Dave Cunningham and Shani Naylor.

I considered withdrawing this word and coming up with another when John Barrs and Dan Widdis told me they knew it during the definition submission period. In retrospect I should have, because Mike Shefler recognized it in the definition list, but what was done was done. The deal seems to have played out reasonably well otherwise, with nine voters (all the non-DQs who submitted definitions plus Ryan McGill) despite that.

The next dealer is Shani N., whose "something monstrous or portentious ..." (def. #10) received four votes, twice as many as its nearest competitors. She also voted for the correct definition, for a total of six points. Dave Cunningham is the traditional "winnah" with four points. Shani would have won the next deal even without her correct vote, as two of Dave's four were for a correct vote and Shani had four points of the natural, organic, and gluten-free variety.

Full results:

1. a procurator. From Stevens, G. who voted 6, 8. Voted for by: Bourne, T. Score: 1.
