Opponent’s options: Bingos through openings you might create, V plays at 10b
Candidate plays: APNOEIc 6b, cAPONIER 3d, OP k9, OP 6g, AA f10, LO o14
Potential plays on next turn: Bingos, plays hooking PHON
Subgoal: Maximize your chances of outscoring your opponent in the endgame
Resolution: While bingos like APNOEIc or cAPONIER seem obvious, the best play is actually AA f10 (9), blocking the S hook. Bingos allow your opponent to bingo themselves and outscore you, while AA allows you to play a more controlled tactical game and beat your opponent in the endgame. It will be difficult for your opponent to play the V, while it will be easy for you to play the P and score well and use your blank to tactically outmaneuver your opponent, even if you fail to draw a bingo.
