Not the best start for wellington Jighere at the 2018 Mattel World Scrabble Championship

Day one of the 2018 Mattel World Scrabble Championship and Scrabble’s 70th anniversary didn’t end has planned for Wellington Jighere, Nigeria’s representative at the ongoing event in Torquay, England.

The 2015 champion who carries the hopes of Africans and Nigerians started the tournament on a poor note.

At the end of the day one, Wellington Jighere had a record of 4 wins, 4 loses and a spread of +231.

Welligton Jighere lost his first game by 363-395 to Quanshie Alexius. He won his second game by 417-349 against Richland Robert. He was seriously beaten 396-570 by Whitmarsh Bradley in his third game.

He won his 4th game by 553-450 against Cummins Chris. He took the 5th game against Tachie Charles by 472-401. He lost his 6th game narrowly 424-420 to Khatri Waseem.

He was too good for MacInerney Ruth as he ran away with a score of 572-365 in his 7th game before falling to Kamara Mohamed 384-392 in his 8th game to end day one with a record of 4 wins, 4 loses and spread of +231.

Wellington Jighere took to his Twitter page to express his disappointment at his poor start, while hoping for a dream finish at the end of the tournament,

“Ended Day 1 on 4 – 4 +231, said Jighere.

“We have 27 games to go, to be played in the next three days.

“This is not a good way to start the Championship. Let’s hope I rally round to do better in the days to come.”
