Playing on an entirely different level

Raymond Chen

Competitive Scrabble® is another game entirely. For example, here’s a game from the 2001 World Championship. You can follow it move-by-move, or you can read the game commentary.

The name “Stefan” you see in the commentary is Wall Street Journal reporter Stefan Fatsis, author of Word Freak: Heartbreak, Triumph, Genius and Obsession in the World of Competitive Scrabble Players, a book that is on my list of “books I really want to read”.
