830 points! Unbelievable.

830! How a Massachusetts carpenter got the highest Scrabble score ever. (Slate)

On Oct. 12, in the basement of a Unitarian church on the town green in Lexington, Mass., a carpenter named Michael Cresta scored 830 points in a game of Scrabble. His opponent, Wayne Yorra, who works at a supermarket deli counter, totaled 490 points. The two men set three records for sanctioned Scrabble in North America: the most points in a game by one player (830), the most total points in a game (1,320), and the most points on a single turn (365, for Cresta's play of QUIXOTRY).

Jesus Christ that's alot of points. For those who don't remember the most anyone got in one of our games was 246 by Jeff. Our scores are still available online here.
