Morgan Sauer in Series 81.

Morgan Sauer was an octochamp in Series 81. He's a Maths and Management Student at the University of Leicester, from Peterborough.

Sauer first appeared on November 4 2019 against Sarah Buchanan and took off with a score of 81 points. The rest of his run saw him score 4 centuries. He eventually garnered 775 points to become an octochamp and qualified for the finals as number 4 seed.

Sauer returned for the finals and faced Andy Evans, the 5th seed, in the last quarterfinal of the series. Sauer played nip and tuck with Evans and eventually went ahead before Evans bounced back with strong word plays and was ultimately ahead by 9 points after beating Sauer in the last numbers round. However, Sauer managed to solve a crucial conundrum and won by just one point.

Sauer's semi-final opponent was the number 1-seeded James Haughton. Although both players managed to find MEDIATION for 9, Sauer was unable to keep up with Haughton's 4-large ability and strong word power, as he bowed out in his first defeat. Sauer amassed an overall score of 932 points in his run.
