Australia’s Karen Richards is currently the world’s most traveled Scrabble player so far for 2018.
The Cape Town International was Karen’s sixth tournament for the year, played on four continents (Europe, Asia, Australia and now Africa) for a total of in excess of 150 games of WESPA rated Scrabble.
With February not yet over, there are still plenty of air miles to cover around the world... and plenty of Scrabble to play.
Like Lukeman, 48 hours prior to this event, she was playing in a tournament across the other side of the world (in Karen’s case, Sydney Australia). At Round 13, Lukeman and Karen met across the board (pictured, right)
Lukeman was victorious 552-435.
