770 Game

On June 13, 1993 at Eagle Rock CA, during the annual local tournament, there was a game played featuring one of the greatest offensive outbursts in recorded Scrabble history. Club 44 director Alan Stern, the top rated player in the event, was defeated by Mark Landsberg 770-338.

The winning score was at the time the highest score by one player in an OSPD dictionary tournament (it has since been bettered). The combined score of 1,108 points was a record for tournaments lasting until 2009 as recognized in the Guinness Book of World Records.  

The game featured Landsberg's five bingos (Stern had two) including most certainly the never reproduced three consecutive turns of a triple-triple, double-double and triple-triple bingos garnering 405 points on those three moves alone. Click here to see how this game unfolded.
