Eurovision Scrabble Championships was an international two-day tournament, arranged by Edward Martin in Lund on May 17-18. Edward, David Webb, Terry Kirk and Lewis Mackay from England battled it out together with Chris May and Andrew Fisher from Australia. They all had a very enjoyable weekend, topped with Eurovision frenzy in Malmö Arena and the Eurovision Village!
For practical reasons (as Chris arrived on Saturday), the 20-round tournament was divided into two parts with 10 rounds each. The winner on Friday was David with 6 wins. Saturday"s winner was Chris May who won 9 games out of 10. David Webb was declared the overall winner of the whole tournament.
All bingos were recorded. Chris had the highest average number of bingos, 2.2, in his 10 matches on the second day. David Webb and Edward Martin both played 36 bingos, the highest number for both days. 195 bingos were played in all and not a single phony slipped through. Nine of the bingos scored more than 100 points (see list here).
