On the evening after Argentina’s World Cup final loss to Germany, we were treated to a second titanic head-to-head tussle in just over 24 hours, as reigning champions the Educated Guessers were challenged by the only other team brave enough to show up, the newly-formed Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass. It was an evening of high drama as – true to Argentina’s 1986 World Cup victory – Quiz Ass raced into a comfortable lead before throwing it away towards the end and then pulling away again towards the death. Hard luck, Educated Guessers, but we hope to see you again in August! The scores are right here.

*Educated Guessers awarded an extra point for giving the Quizmaster cake during the half time break. This was a one-off due to only two teams being involved, and will not be accepted as a regular strategy.

Educated Guessers can at least celebrate a second consecutive podium finish...
