15th WYPS championship

15th WYPS championship won Malaj. He lost only one game with labradors. For Malaj it is his third win. He won already 9th and 10th championship.

There are final moves between Malaj and Nevermind, who finished as 2nd player.

White (Malaj) has more stones, bat he has bad letters: Y,Z,G,Q. Nut in next move he used letters Z and Y.

Black has now a lot possibilities: ARIELS, DROP, PALETTE. But is not so important. After ARTELS:

White now flip letter O and game is finished: OUTGREW.

OUTGREW was very clever move. If be white player play some simpler word, for example LYRA:
black has response ONPLAY, flip Y,  and game is not still finished.
