Theme: Game of Letters (for Daniel Cohen)
Author/Opus: This is the 142nd puzzle from our contributing puzzlemaster Serkan Yürekli.
Rules: Place the 18 names into the grid, one letter per cell, so they can be read from left to right or from top to bottom, without crossing or overlapping each other. Treat the first and last names as separate entries. A dot between two cells indicates that both cells must contain the same letter. All possible dots are given.
Answer String: For each row from top to bottom, enter the number of unused cells in that row.
Time Standards (highlight to view): Grandmaster = 9:00, Master = 14:30, Expert = 29:00
