In Diagram 8, you would like to find a play that wins the game even if the Q in the bag. We would like to find a play that allows us to play QAT and has QI as a backup, while winning all the time even if your opponent has the Q. However, no such play exists. However, there is another option: passing your turn. Passing forces your opponent to draw the Q, and our rack is strong enough such that we can outscore our opponent even after they play QI, either next turn or later in the game. Thus, your best play is to pass.
