Vicky Smith had enough points to qualify for the finals as #7 seed, but couldn't make it for personal reasons. Glynn Leaney was undefeated at the end of the Series, but preferred to come back in Series 40, rather than qualify in Series 39 as #7 seed.

Between Series 39 and Series 63, players are sorted by number of wins then by number of points. Points from both wins and losses count. Points from sudden death conundrums aren't counted, and players with the same number of wins and points are sorted by highest score.


NOTE: The ruling re: number of wins taking precedence over number of points had in fact been announced at the beginning of the previous series, but was not officially implemented until this series because all Series 38 finalists were in descending order of point count anyway, and so the ruling had not needed to be enforced until Episode 2339.
