Opponent’s options: column m plays, blocking plays
Candidate plays: SEQUIN 15e (52), BURN 5k (8), QI e7 (11), AE 6j (8)
Potential plays on next turn: SINUATE, SEQUOIA
Subgoal: Maximize the odds of overcoming your opponent
Resolution: While it may seem like SEQUIN has a good chance of winning, it doesn’t really. Your opponent is a huge favorite to win with endgame timing and a 2 point deficit, especially on the board after SEQUIN and the potential for row 14 plays. Your best play is to go for broke and try to hit SEQUOIA. If you draw the O, you will almost surely win.
