Opening Rack Simulation

Opening Rack Scenario

Tonight I had this opening rack in my game: AEJNSTQ

I immediately thought of JANES, and played it, although JEANS, or JEATS would have been better positionally.

I then simulated this rack in maven and was surprised that QAT was the top preference by quite a few points. The next option was a surprise too of CHANGE JQ. Of course this would make it easier to get bingos.

I think JEANS or JEATS is best because if scores 40 points whereas QAT only scores 24. But it's interesting to see what Maven thinks.

I then simulated in Quackle and QAT come out best again! QAT had the highest win percentage followed by JEANS.

Dear me, it's not just the score but also the quality of the leave, openness etc. The 16 pts isn't much when u consider the difference in leave (QT vs JENS) and the board (exposing more floaters and S on star)
