## Quordle today (game #857) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #857, are…

• DEBIT
• HATER
• PHOTO
• SPIKE

I made a silly mistake with today's Quordle, and the only reason why it didn't come back to bite me is because it's not really a very difficult Quordle overall. The mistake came with HATER, where I somehow failed to spot that the yellow H I had was already ruled out of appearing in the final position, then played EARTH. I fixed it on the next go, but was grateful for the fact that DEBIT and SPIKE were not too tricky, and that I had a couple of green letters already when it came to PHOTO.
