Default [Dixonary] Round 3026 - PADUASOY - The Results

My apologies for the late results posting. Last round I resolved to set up an Excel sheet to score the deal and unfortunately I procrastinated right past the deal falling to me again. Therefore, I had to do a manual scoring job. Any mistakes are clearly the dealers fault, mea culpa.

The winner of Round 3026 was the American Heritage Dictionary, who unfortunately cannot deal. Therefore, Tim Cunningham wins the deal with his unnatural 4. The runners up who each scored 3; Bourne, Embler, Mallach, and Naylor can heave a sigh of relief and enjoy their weekend..

The true definition was 8: "A rich heavy silk fabric with a corded effect." (AHD 5), which 5 perceptive players guessed.

1. A nut substitute made from a soybean soaked in water,
drained, and then baked or roasted. No votes
