Penny dropped: it's the Countdown numbers game!
There's a special captain's treat that I save for myself, which is picking the teams for the Peter Rooke Cup. I'm after the best team of 8 players for the matches from the available pool, who together are inside the grading limit of 1120 (formerly 1000).
After some fiddling with a spreadsheet, I managed to hit exactly the limit of 1120 this year, one chap dropped out, then the closest I could get was 1119, which is still pretty good.
Then today our opponents cancelled because of Weather, so I have to start again...

I don't know if Nigel Short still refers to Judit Polgar as 'Lassie'.
