Phil Hulme in Series 82.

Phil Hulme was a contestant in Series 8 and an octochamp in Series 82. He is a Retired Highway Attendant from Middleton in Manchester. He became an Apterite after recording.

Making his second debut against Steve Agace, 34 years after winning one game in Series 8, Hulme won with a score of 99 to Agace's 46. Hulme then put in seven more victories with five more scores in the 90's. In his eighth game, a spot of DELATIONS for nine earned him his first century and he became the fourth octochamp of the series with a total of 789 points.

As a result of his success in the heats, Hulme qualified for the finals as the number 6 seed. In a very tense quarter-final battle against Leo Smith which saw the lead change many times throughout, Hulme was outdone on his 6-small gamble in the penultimate round by Smith and the retiree was ultimately disposed in his second defeat. Hulme amassed a total of 869 points in his Series 82 run. With his series 8 run, his overall record is 946 points.
