Default [Dixonary] Round 3104: GRA [Results]

The real winner of this round, with a spectacular 8 votes, was the OED.

No fewer than 4 players tied for second place, with 4 points each: Dan Widdis, Efrem Mallach, Judy Madnick, and Tim Lodge. None of those scores was a natural, so the leader in the rolling scores takes the next deal. With 15 points from the last 5 rounds, including this one, that is Efrem Mallach.
