    Scoreboard updated through Day 2!

    The scores may look ugly early on, but that's the way it goes in slams. Especially with the impossibility of outfit predicting questions, there weren't any answers expected to be guaranteed right this early on. Vliegen got a point for several, but other than that it was a whole lot of players flopping, and far too many bagels.

    But out of the darkness, there is light. Two past powerhouses took an early lead, perfect through two days. 20Q2007USO bronze medalist and Wooden Spoon creator Jack (good things happen to Other Contests creators, eh?) and two-time 20 Questions champion (20Q2007USO & 20Q2007YEC) suliso each got out to a 1-0 start.

    Close on their tails at 1-2 are Charlie02123, Equipped, hawkgirl98, Madame (perennial contender, never finished outside the top three in 20 Questions),and oohsalmon (perennial cellar dweller, never finished outside bottom three).

    And while history tells us that suliso already has this thing in the bag, I should remind you all that it is still, of course, anyone's game

    oh well, I'm out of SP's allready, almost out of the wooden spoon, so at least I can hang on 20 questions....

    Madame, with one silver and two bronzes in the past three editions of 20 Questions, clearly has her sights set on gold in 2008. She has jumped off to a commanding lead early on in 20 Questions - 2008 Australian Open, with eight points secured (tied with Aziza for first), and only five points impossible (sole possession of first by two points). Trailing her is Aziza, followed by Charlie02123 (the only player to have gotten the MCA question correct so far), who is closely followed by Renee0108.

    A lot of points come down to the very end, so it's by no means anywhere near over. With the right words to the runner-up's box, you could be lifting the more coveted trophy come next Sunday.

    Yeah... I forgot about Vodafone, so I thought MCA was the second-largest stadium. I thought Venus would get put there a couple of times. Also, Venus and Serena keep getting put on Show Court 2 for doubles... I was counting on them getting into MCA! Bollocks.

    They may very well get moved from 2 onto MCA...that's what happened to Kuznetsova/Mauresmo.

    I haven't been in the top three for a day since I won the USO a while back.
    That seems like forever ago.

    I might have felt sorry for you, but you have 6 points. Puh-leez.

    I have one, with sixteen wrong. Worse still is that after Day 2, I had one with only two wrong. I went oh-for-fourteen.

    Sorry having six is so terrible .

    Trust me, being almost at the top but not quite is worse than being in the bottom..at least to me. I'd rather go out horribly than get close and not win

    Sorry about you only having one
