Long words (1)

hardOne thing about long words is: we tend to miss them—they are hard to spot, easy to overlook. The words themselves don’t necessarily have to be difficult, but on many occasions the sheer length is a cause enough to make them ‘beyond thinking’.

4, 12letter masturbating (cut)

In this position, many players might suffice themselves with H11:RUTHS. But not Red here. She played D2:MASTURBATING istead—a twelve-letter word(!). See? It’s not a difficult word, but imagining it in the first place is.

And I personally think it’s better [than RUTHS] not only because it scores a little bigger, but also because it uses more letter and especially opens up the semi-closed second quadrant for new possibilities.

I love the spirit.
