In Puzzle 35, you have one major scoring play (BEANO), but it does not score enough points after your opponent plays GYP, as you cannot score well if you trap your opponent with the K.
However, you have the option of making a very clever setup by playing SAGA, setting up BONE. If your opponent blocks with AG, then you can make a second setup, playing ON 2n setting up BE 1n. However, even despite this setup effort, you will still fall two points short.
The best play is to play OBA in the same spot as BEANO for 22 points, leaving GAEN as an outplay at b8. This scores well enough to outscore all of your opponents options: if your opponent blocks GAEN with POW, you can then outscore your opponent by either blocking KI or going out in two. If your opponent plays GYP, you can trap your opponent with the K by playing AI, then play OWE and win in a trap endgame. If your opponent plays KI, you can outscore them by simply playing GAEN to go out.
