Four times they anagram
Once to help in judgement
Twice in the name of a book
Third could describe part of you
And last, an event with a hook


In no particular order, four hints for four words: chopper, second, durbar, midfielder

I have one potential set (reaching), although I can't match one of the words. The words are

replay - helps with judgement, e.g. VAR, associated with the word "second"

parley - event with a hook (not sure why), associated with durbar?

player - in the title "Ready Player One", associated with midfielder

pearly - pearly whites, associated with chopper?

  • $\begingroup$ Your answers are too close to be a coincidence so I think you're nearly there! Perhaps a basketball player takes a hook shot? $\endgroup$ – Derek O Jun 30 at 22:13

    $\begingroup$ You've got the four words. Though the matches with the lines in the riddle are a little mixed up.. if you reconsider them (hopefully) it will seem less far reaching $\endgroup$ – Daniel C Jun 30 at 23:21
