Now...there you all are thinking how we Sypher score someone who has missed a day considering he can't give ZERO as it is the lowest score that wins....Well, if you miss a day...you receive the highest score of that day....

Now we know that...You could still be in with a chance even if you miss a day if everyone was high scoring that day.

Here are the scores after Day 2....

Fortunata.................10
Baglady...................11
Pinhead...................11
Mamaja....................11
