>Joshua_Sokol: AEEILUU -EIUU +0 0
>Crayne_Spanier: ?CEGLNP 8D CLEPiNG +78 78
>Joshua_Sokol: AAELRTV H5 VAR.ETAL +61 61
#note I didn't know VALERATE all that well. This is around a 4-point mistake.
>Crayne_Spanier: EZ G6 ZE. +29 107
>Joshua_Sokol: LOOOSTW E5 WOO. +14 75
#note Missed the chance to play WOLOST*.

I would play I11 WOO normally but the S-hook on VARIETAL was much stronger than the hooks on WOO. Bingos on row 13 are safer than 14. Also, maybe Crayne for some reason doesn't know the s-hook on VARIETAL
>Crayne_Spanier: HKNU D8 .HUNK +28 135
>Joshua_Sokol: EEILOST 5H .OLE +14 89
#note nice block of ETOILES. There's a lot of I's left, so I should play VOILE here instead.
>Crayne_Spanier: EJ 10F JE. +26 161
>Joshua_Sokol: DEGISST L1 DIGESTS +80 169
>Crayne_Spanier: EIMNR 1G REMIN. +27 188
>Joshua_Sokol: AEHILTU M7 HUE +20 189
#note Alternatively 3J AU(G)H sets up my T and keeps the E over the A
>Crayne_Spanier: ?BIOSTW 12G B.OWIeST +74 262
>Joshua_Sokol: ADIILTV N10 VI.AL +32 221
>Crayne_Spanier: AGY O13 YAG +28 290
>Joshua_Sokol: DEFINRT 2J FE.NT +47 268
#note 2H RIF is much better for my chances at a bingo, but it's easier to close the board after that play, so I'll take FEINT, it seems he doesn't have the S yet.
>Crayne_Spanier: ADQ K9 QAD. +28 318
>Joshua_Sokol: ADIINOR 11B DA.IO +21 289
#note I regretted FEINT this turn. I should keep my options open; i.e not trying to make my chances of winning the game almost fully dependent on drawing the last S. The problem is that if I do draw the S, my chances of winning are very very good, but if I don't they are pretty slim. Playing RIF would have allowed me to continue to make plays keeping the board as open as possible for a bingo comeback in the future. Quackle likes E11 OIDIA here, which seems way too risky to me. I don't think I need to do that.
>Crayne_Spanier: DOR 12A DOR. +16 334
>Joshua_Sokol: ABINPRY 13C BY +42 331
>Crayne_Spanier: AEMX D3 EXAM +35 369
>Joshua_Sokol: AAINPRR C3 PAR +33 364
#note I couldn't decide between M12 (S)PAR and C3 PAR here. SPAR was probably the play I make against a stronger player, as they will make a stronger pre-endgame decision and I'm sort of dead if Crayne scores next turn.
>Crayne_Spanier: COT B2 COT +25 394
>Joshua_Sokol: AFINNRS J10 FA.N +34 398
>Crayne_Spanier: EIIOTUU 3K E.O +15 409
#note he should play (D)UIT first, this is a 9-point error
>Joshua_Sokol: EIINRRS 13F RISE. +26 424
#note I should block (D)UIT with (D)IRE, but I was happy with the win here
>Crayne_Spanier: IITUU A12 .UIT +15 424
>Joshua_Sokol: INR E1 RIN +9 433
>Joshua_Sokol: (IU) +4 437
