Round 5 Aftermath

Only six entries this round and still the longest simulation time. Check out the gory details. Congratulations to W. F. B. who wins it fairly comfortably with over 15 points more than Joonas in second place. Robert Macrae's third place keeps him at no. 1 overall although I suspect that with only the best six scores counting for the veterans Joonas still has the edge.

The d-clear strategy scored very well this round. W. F. B.'s top scoring warrior was usually one of his two entered d-clears. The additional d-clear in core often scored well and Implication blitzed one round with 190 points. I suspect the outcome (and indeed submissions) would have been quite different with two copies of Implication in core.
