Default [Dixonary] Round 2847: results

Hi all

The runaway winner of this game is Johnny B who scored 8 points. Johnny and
Tim B submitted definitions for PREBLE which were identical in meaning, but
slightly different in wording and which I combined. Tim B, therefore, is
the real winner, with 6 points. The actual dictionary meaning was "gravel".

My apologies go to Dan W, who submitted a def in good time, but which I
somehow overlooked. I have awarded him 2 dealer points.

And Dave - good to see you playing!

Just one further thing, as I think it's only the second time I've combined
defs - is there a convention to let the players know beforehand, so they
can change their def if they wish?

Take it away Johnny!
