Game 3 Move 22


WSC Monitor

I found monitoring the WSC rather tiresome and so I decided to do some simple codes (well, some not so simple, but I learn from Google searches) to make things easier for myself, and here’s what I came up with (the things to run are WSC Monitor.htm and WSC Monitor.exe). What it did for me […]

Solution to Pre-Endgame Quiz + more on that game

Here’s the simulation result for this quiz: (click to enlarge) MIB simulates the best, but why? Let’s see… 1) COIF does not tell us much about Tony’s rack except that he kept decent tiles. So maybe we can expect a bingo.2) Any bingo to the F (FREMITus, FoRETIMe, FoRMIaTE, FEMITeRs) would lose to FRENZIED, CONFEREE […]

Pre-Endgame Quiz

Shown here is quite an eventful game, though there aren’t (from my perspective) many strategically significant moves, except for this move. (click to enlarge) Task is as usual – find the winning-est move. I’ll talk more about this game in a later post, but this position is more interesting and deserves prior attention.
