Just saw this on slashdot.
A guy playing in a scrabble club in Massachusettes just scored 830 points, the most ever in an official scrabble game. He also scored 365 points for , the highest ever for a single turn. His opponent scored 490 points, making this game also the highest-ever total score in an official game!
I played in a Scrabble club for a while and sometimes broke 350. But the old hands never knew what any of their long words actually meant. They just knew it was in the book and valid.

Unbelievable.
