In a more slow-paced game you have time to consider options and be a bit more strategic about how you play, you can make the most of every tile, particularly S's and blanks. When you've got that clock ticking away, you've got to make a move and sometimes there's just no time to consider all the alternatives.
I'm now going to go through a few highlights of the game and talk about how I felt the game was going at each point.
I got off to a pretty good start there, but you can see that I skipped a turn when I got flustered and let the timer get away from me. At that point I felt like the game had turned against me, and that wasn't helped by Lee's 35 point play immediately afterwards.
I almost gave up when Lee played "za" and "avo", because he blocked the exact spot I was counting on playing my tiles, but then I spotted another place and got the bingo anyway. It was at this point I felt the game turning back in my favour.
