Bob Lunt in Series 79.

Bob Lunt was a finalist in Series 79.

Lunt made his debut on July 25th 2018 and won in a tight contest against Bryan Harrison, where neither player could unscramble the crucial conundrum OVERNOFOP. This was followed by 6 more victories, including a high score of 101. In Lunt's third game, his wife was the audience member who solved the conundrum. His run however came to an end on August 3rd, when he was beaten sensationally by Matthew Bass. Bass started off slowly but picked up speed spotting the eight letter word OUTCRIER to take the lead in the second half and ultimately prevailed with 104 points to Lunt's 80 points, although Lunt got the conundrum. His 7 wins placed him in 9th position in the seeding table, which would normally result in not qualifying. However, through the 4th seed Robin Johnson's absence, he qualified as 8th seed.

He returned to the finals as 8th seed and was pitted against number one seed Martin May. However May started off spotting the nine letter word VERSIONAL in the first letters round. Lunt however fought back hard and won the conundrum round, finishing with 86 points to May's strong 115 points, rendering Lunt to another defeat.
