Matthew Tassier

Matthew Tassier was an octochamp in and the runner-up of Series 73. Notably, he achieved 799 points in his run, the highest octochamp total of any non-800 club octochamp. Tassier achieved five centuries in his octorun to set up a quarter final with No 4 seed John Hardie. In a high scoring game, Tassier prevailed 122-107 thanks to the niner ADDICTIVE. In the semi-finals, another niner, OUTBRAVES, swung the pendulum in his favour late on as Tassier defeated No 1 seed Thomas Carey to set up a final with Jonathan Wynn. The final went to a crucial conundrum, however neither player solved TTHESCORE and Tassier was defeated by 4 points.

He is a numbers expert, some say the best Countdown numerist in the world. Obviously he practiced on Apterous, and holds the record for the extremely hard Spoilage numbers attack.
