This week, there was only one day that everyone got FJ right but only two players were left in it so we can’t even call it a triple solve. Once, again we had but two champions the whole week, and one of them was the returning champ from last week, Elliot Yates, who continued to entertain us in the chat segments until Thursday.

Then John Schultz took over Thursday and also won on Friday, so he will be the returning champ next Monday. John is already darned close to what Elliot made in 4 games.
