Default [Dixonary] Round 3081 LAIRWITE Results

The real meaning of LAIRWITE is ' a fine for fornication or adultery, esp.
with a bondwoman.' which three clever players guessed. Paul Keating
submitted a def so close to the real one that I had to combine them, giving
him 3 points. Mike Shefler is our new dealer, with 5 points, made up of 3
votes for his northern shrike plus 2 points for guessing the real def.
Chris Carson and Alan Mallach were the real winners in second place with 4
points each - 2 of Alan's were gained because he voted for the real def.
Everyone else scored at least one point.

Over to you, Mike.
