He scored the highest ever losing score in Series 47 when he lost 120 – 107 to Chris Wills in a classic encounter. The game was poised 110 – 107 going into the conundrum, when Wills buzzed in with the right answer to LINGOFLOW in less than a second to win the game 120 – 107. This was also the highest aggregate score in a 15-round game until Julian Fell and Graham Nash produced a 120 – 109 thriller in the Championship of Champions XI.
