Couldn't be closer!
I claimed 1 Point at 10:15, meaning it was valid at 10:16, 2 minutes before the scores. The scores are wrong, my score was 21 Points at 10:18.
Isn't that what I said? (I did post 20 points initially but amended it before you replied.)

I stopped the post while posting because I was posting on a Mobile Network with it turned off, and so I refreshed it later, when I realised, I then had the corrected quote instead and so posted the correct quote!

My lead is now substantially increased due to a massive tactical blunder from Tube Geek. Bad luck!

Wait - why am I on 250? I got loads of ones, and that wasn't minus 10 was it?

You also got loads of minus ones - A Challenge was pretty trigger happy! And yes it was minus 10 - how long did you think it was from 07:48 to 07:54?

Oh... I didn't look at the times, but I posted on something else and thought it said 07:59

Looks like I've got some catching up to do!

Tube Geek: your claim of 15 points at 13:17 yesterday was invalid, because no other player had made a valid claim since your previous claim at 12:56. (This actually works in your favour - instead of losing 15 points you get zero.)

I know, I realised soon after! And I knew about it working in my favour all along! :wink:

Tube Geek is within sight of the finishing line! I really must get online more in the evenings if I'm to be in with a chance.

I'd also like to congratulate A Challenge on his "psychic" claim of 11 points at 18:53 :)

Tube Geek was on 481 at one point yesterday but then shot himself in the foot by making an unnecessary 30-point claim which failed. I was on the verge of conceding defeat but it looks as though I'm in with a chance again!
