(N.B. Almost zero of the following information is true, hence this post is not to be taken seriously)
Scheming Toh Weibin has a brilliant plan.
This plan is secret but it will be posted here since this blog is so under-read. So no one, absolutely NO Scrabble players, will know about it :).
To become the Next Best Player never to have played in a WSC after Hubert has gone for his turn.
Step 1: Ensure that Hubert qualifies for WSC
This is the simplest of all steps – just lose to him, which is not a tough thing to do in the first place (until Step 2 is completed). And also, avoid winning the Nationals at all costs, though it is still extremely likely that he will remain the highest rated.
If 300 words are done each day, it is estimated that I will finish the dictionary. Soon. Though the effect of mugging will probably turn me into a spod.

The deceptive element of this comes about in phonying – I will phony CEA, AUO, DOFS, thinking that they are all good by the new dictionary. I will even play BRAAIEDS if I have to.

Step 4: Purposely losing the Nationals
Of course, I would have finished quite a bit of the dictionary by then so I would be positioned to win the Nationals. Easily. Yet I will vault myself into a high position, but not high enough to win.
With Collins knowledge, I will win every single tournament after the Qualifying Period and be rated 2851 (like Garry Kasparov’s peak on chess). Then I will win the WSC 10 times and be rated 2851 internationally too. Then years later IBM will create a computer program called Deep Black that will beat me.

Should any of the steps fail (especially mugging), shoot everyone up with a AK (Andy Kurnia)- 47. Usurp the position of President of SA (I mean I’d be the only guy left in the Association!) and rename it WESPA. THEN change the dictionary back to SOWPODS.

JP, Hubert and the last qualifier would go for WSC at Mumbai this year. IMO (not EMO you Collins meffs) this is worth missing because I need time to finish SOWPODS. Because Singapore has the 5th lowest corruption rate according to the Corruption Perception Index (and it is likely that I would become President of the Republic by then), WSC will be held in Singapore in 2009. That’s 2 years of being the best player never to have played in a WSC =D.
That, wofs, will be my year, because I will be exempted from NS with merit from being Uniquely Singaporean.
Jaga out dorbs. I will whup your jaxies.

Once again, I repeat that the content above is rubbish. Jokes aside, I need to play better. And study better.
