Notable exceptions

Chris Cummins scored 123 with two nine letter words against Richard Redman in his 7th appearance. During the game Cummins had NOVATE disallowed. However it's listed in the dictionary under NOVATION and therefore should have been allowed, making his final score 129. This is not included in this list.
