I thought your fake defs for SUBLITION were really good, but there was no hiding place for the dealer.  Voters were drawn to the real def - number 8, the ground colour - like moths to a flame, leaving me with a D7. Two players tied for first place, having gained 4 votes as well as guessing the real def.  Of those two, Paul Keating is marginally ahead in the rolling scores, so he takes the next deal, leaving Johnny Barrs as the real winner.

Over to you, Paul.

For some reason, my spreadsheet dropped the asterisk from Shani Naylor's score in the summary table. It was shown correctly as 3* in the list.
