#note Ananto exc, in this dying board
>Christian_Oktavius: BEEMRTV H5 EV.. +7 90
#note 61 BRUME. Hovever since Ananto exchange, and I don't know BRUME, the only move I found worthy for rack balance and score was I4 BEVOR, leaving unlikely bingo or even counter play leave EMRT.

So for some still, unknown reason I believe I should make this board even harder, at least until I get some goodies

#note And it worked...
>Ananto_Widodo: IPTU 13B PU.TI +14 241
#note Seems Ananto already has the last blank and decided enough to play in this closed board
>Christian_Oktavius: DKNRSST C12 D.NK +14 301
#note BEST, still better to play than exchange
>Ananto_Widodo: ?ACHINO 12F ApHONIC +82 323
#note Quackle realize the situation, while almost all scrabble master overlook it.

This is one of the most heart-breaking bingo, for Ananto, who try so hard to yield this move, which I believe most player agree this was the best play.

QUackle realized that if he play a bingo now, then he empty the sack, with full 7 letters in his rack, with tile unseen very very conducive for bingo. Instead bingoing, quackle fgured out the "winningest" move was H10 LOCHIA for 42, leaving N, blank and 2 letter in the sack. That gave Ananto winning chance 59.5%, while bingo play APHONIC, MOHICAN, or MANIHOC only gave him 51% win....

But AGAIN, without quackle I would agree this bingo play was BEST, because it is also, hard to find
