Based on ratings, if the current incarnation of this player played himself from just after his first tournament (or first tournament for which he has a rating listed), would he be expected to win at least 75% of the time?

Does this person have at least 50% wins in tournaments according to their Cross-Tables stats?

Also, is it Sid Lashley?

He's my attempt at picking a semi-obscure player.

Anyways, Jason got it. Your turn.

Does this player have a winning record against any U.S. National Scrabble Champion(s) (i.e. winners of the U.S. NSC Division 1, even if they are other nationalities... also include James Leong)? I didn't grab a link for it, but I'm sure the list is relatively easy to find... or, if necessary, you can go through them on Wapnick's page since he's been to every one.

Btw, Sinke is closer to Montreal than Edmonton, which is why I was confused. I had it narrowed down to British Columbia and Manitoba before the number/letter question, so I thought you were saying that B looked like 8.

Yeah, I could've phrased it better. Asking whether the player is farther from the object of the sentence instead of closer is needlessly convoluted.

Is this player's first name the name of, or in the name of, one of the books of the Bible? All books in the link provided are fair game, including Gospels, Epistles, Apocrypha, and those that are only in some or one of the versions. Nicknames are also allowed; the only one that I think needs clarification is that Susanna can be Susan and its nicknames (Susie, Suze, etc.).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Books_of_the_bible

I'm hoping this comes back No so I can rule out all the Zephaniahs.

I didn't make a guess, but I was following the thread and was guessing he was saying B looked like 13.

Are they from a state within the top 10 total population counts in the 2010 US Census? (Just say no if they are not located in US.)
