Opponent’s options: Row 1 bingos, column o bingos
Candidate plays: FLED n6 (16), FILTH e1 (22)
Subgoal: Minimize opponent’s bingo options while ensuring that you can outscore opponent’s non-bingos
Resolution: While it’s tempting to take the points with FISH 13b, because of your scoring tiles you are in no danger of being outscored: the only way you can lose is if your opponent plays a bingo next turn. The key to the position: which opening is more dangerous, the N at 8o or the V at 1h?
This initially seems like a tough question. We must look at the racks that hit one spot but not the other. By looking further, it turns out that every single bingo that hits the V also hits the N: meanwhile, EILNOT? and EEILOT? only hit the N, but not the V. Since more bingos hit the N, you should block it.
The best play that blocks the N is FLED n6 (16), saving your S to score during the endgame.
