Live streamed this round: Geoffrey Newman (CAN) vs. Chris Lipe (USA).

Conrad Bassett-Bouchard (USA) realized that he could only lose against David Webb (Eng) if the last three tiles in the bag were all Is. He lost.

This is the second time today that I've heard this sort of story; earlier today, Chris Cree (USA) said he lost a game that was 95% his when the only losing combination of EE turned up in the bag at the end.

I infer that later today an American will tell me that he lost a game because OOOO was left in the game.
