THIS WEEK AT THE CLUB…
*** Season 75: Wk 11 of 25 – January 14, 2020 ***
Your rack is C-E-R-R-I-E-S. There’s no seven-letter word in the combination and no obvious hotspot on the board. What’s the play? If you’re Dahlia at the Club this past week, you study the board long and hard. You note a lone V two empty spaces above ES… and you put down the 10-letter RESERVICES. Your extraordinary play is further gilded when opponent Wendy holds it, considers it and apprehensively challenges it. The electronic Scrabble Checker, they learn, judges 10-letter words — and judges RESERVICES legal. This wasn’t Dahlia’s first 10-letter play at the Club. In a game some months back against Rena, she added ETARIAN to their board’s preexisting VEG. Looks like Dahlia’s opponents need not only defend premium squares against her, but also tiles floating in open lanes……Mazal Tov to JudyM who shared with us a tasty repast to mark the birth of a grandson.
