She left on a high, she came back on a high. Two years after claiming her tenth consecutive National title, Theresa Brousson (seen in photo) came out of competitive exile in the same way as she had gone into it, lifting trophies.
After falling just short of winning the Freedom Day One-Day Tournament and placing second and third in the 10th MISO Early Bird and Main Event respectively, Malta's Scrabble queen has completed her comeback to victory by taking the Sette Giugno One-Day Tournament title, winning six out of seven games, one better than runner-up Charles Micallef.
Another remarkable resurgence was accomplished by the ninth-ranked player Mario Camilleri, who beat Brousson on the way to placing third and gaining a bagful of points to climb up to twelfth place on the National Player Rating List.
Also winning points and a trophy, the Ratings Prize, was Reno Zammit. (Look right for the Word of the Month.)
