Helen Gipson (Sco) is +2087, on a 5-game winning streak. Cecil Muscat (MLT) is 3 games behind the leader at 15-4 +1570, on a 7-game winning streak.

First result in this round: Cecil Muscat (MLT) 475 Nicky Huitson (Eng) 377.

Brid Ni Bhriain (IRL) came out of her 588-342 loss to Howard Warner (NZL) a little overawed, especially with his play of EQUATION to -ON.

Theresa Brousson (MLT) opted not to respond to opening GLEE with FLEAWORT (which could have been hooked with an S across the triple lane) , and was then rewarded with consecutive bingoes SATIATE, TRIBASIC, VAUNTERY, NOURSLE.

The top three continue to win, so going into the lunch break, it's Howard Warner (NZL) 18-1 +2573, Theresa Brousson (MLT) 17-2 +2720 and Helen Gipson (Sco) +2087.
