Opponent’s options: BOLIVARES h7 (95), VIRELAIS m7 (82), RAVIOLIS n4 (71), VARIOLES n4 (65), VALORISE n5 (65), VITALISE o6 (62), LISTERIA o5 (59), QI m7 (21)
Candidate plays: GLOW n6 (12), GAWP i11 (23), BOW h7 (8), WHELP 10i (13)
Subgoal: Block or outscore as many potential bingos as possible.
Resolution: Playing BOW h7 (8) blocks BOLIVARES and allows you to outrun any other bingo, as it allows you to play the Q off (QAID, QI, QAT,) in case your opponent has one of the other high scoring bingos. While it certainly allows more bingos, every other play has potential diaster scenarios that could result in a loss.
