MM Links Solutions June 2011 [Week 4]

What a finish to a month! Such excitement has seldom been seen in cricket!
Three quarters of players helped to run up a total of 60 points.

I can now reveal that King Cliffyg's chosen links were:

TEST cricket
pitch BLACK
STICKY wicket
maiden VOYAGE

These found favour with many players, but who scored what and who is where on the leaderboard?

Read on.


MAIDEN VOYAGE fell immediately to Paulineward and was matched within 2 minutes by Aquagility and Dinkypuzzled earning 2 points for each.

Tearinghair followed with STICKY WICKET. Ulysses100, Roslyn251254 and Lysander were within the timeframe for bonus points so 2 points each.

Two munutes past nine and Rockfordill thought he was still in the dark and opted for PITCH BLACK. Deecee131, Roslyn251254 (again), Grannydi, Lysander (again) and Middlestump joined in for the glut of 2-points on offer.

Just a couple of minutes later and player #14, Middlestump found the remaining link of TEST CRICKET (with a name like that it was destined to be), for 2 points.

Middlestump also matched PITCH BLACK (as just mentioned) and MAIDEN VOYAGE (sadly just outside the bonus timeframe) for 3 matches and a total of 5 points.

***** HOT SHOT OF THE WEEK *****

*** Honourable Mention *** should be made here of another treble hitter - Centrino who scored 3 single points again, only just outside of the bonus points.

. . . and Welcome Back Alibobs

Points this week were:

5 - Middlestump
4 - Lysander and Roslyn251254
3 - Centrino
2 - (17 players)
1 - (10 players)

4 points - Deecee, Mr Ont-Ice & X-ray
3 points - Brenden, Cupid04, Elspeth, Grannydi, Kawakiri & Ulysses100
2 points - 12 players
1 point -- 10 players

So Joint Champions this month are:

***** CUE THE FANFARE *****
***** - MIDDLESTUMP - *****
***** . PAULINEWARD . *****
***** . JUNE - 2011 . *****
***** C H A M P I O N S *****

. . . AND FINALLY, we come to the tricky part where we have to select Gliffyg's successor.

To me it seems obvious.
Out of the six players occupying the top two places on the leaderboard, there is only one who has never ever set the links.
I think it is also very appropriate since she has never had the chance of scoring early bonus points as our game starts at 4am her time! (Ontario, Canada)
Her achievement is all the more spectacular when that is taken into account.

I therefore have no hesitation in declaring that the next setter of MM links will be "The Ice Queen' Mrs Ont-Ice

****** THE ICE QUEEN ******
***** SETTER FOR JULY *****

See you all next weekend
Congratulations to Champions and point scorers.

(Another month flown by!!)
