Opponent’s options: ARIA a12: a bunch of ~12-15 point options that don’t go out.
High scoring plays: TAKEUP d10 (24), KITE a12 (26), etc.
Here, it is vital that you block ARIA a12, as it is your opponent’s outplay and scores extremely well. You need to find a play that blocks this out play while still giving yourself a reasonable scoring out in two. A play like KITE or KAE scores well while blocking, but does not leave you a good out play. The best play that accomplishes these goals is TEGUA 13a (12), allowing you to play LIKE or KIER to go out.
