i Cryptic Crossword 946 Punk

February 20, 2014

Another excellent puzzle from Punk. Inventive, with a nice mixture of easy and hard clues. I’m not sure, personally, that 20d really works, but maybe that’s just me as others seemed to like it. I won’t tell you how long I struggled over 9ac, having persistently misread adversary as anniversary. Strange the tricks the mind plays.

COD? With honours to 6ac, 21ac and 16d, my nomination goes to 4d – ‘Opposite sides hiding a woman’s secret drink (5)’.

The 2009 blog is complete.
