Stephen Briggs in Series 73.

Stephen Briggs was a contestant in Series 43 and an octochamp in Series 73.

Having won three games (and only losing the fourth on a tie-break conundrum) in his original run, Briggs returned in 2015 with a victory over fellow series finalist Liam Moloney. Seven more wins, including six centuries, followed to which was enough for Briggs to qualify for the finals as 3rd seed. He defeated Judy Bursford in the quarter-final but was unable to overcome eventual series champion Jonathan Wynn in the semi-final, losing in a high scoring encounter. I wouldn't consider arsebike to be plausible. With 883 points, Briggs has the highest octotal for a non-apterite in the apterous era.
