=== Memorial Day Weekend, 2010: Club #663, Remarkable evening for Dave Moersdorf ===
Memorial Day 2010 at the Smoky Mountain division of the Tennessee Valley Anagrammers Club #
663 took on a whole new meaning when Dave Moersdorf, a perennial top 10 rated player in the state, conducted a personal clinic by putting up an 8-1 record for the night that included three games over 500 points, an average of 486 per game, an average margin of victory of 174 points, and a mind-bending 23 seven-letter plays (bingos), thrashing every member at least once.
Frank Schin, another top 10 rated player, was the only player to win a game, taking a 402-368 match. Schin’s victory was the only game where Moersdorf scored less than 450 points in a game, and the only game where he was held to a single bingo.
Moersdorf’s numbers for the night were the highest single-night totals in every known category of tournament-style SCRABBLE ever seen by any member of the club, some of whom have more than 30 years of competition under their belts. Moersdorf, himself a 30-plus year player with a national reputation, was surprised by his own performance, saying he had never seen a player draw so many desirable tiles in a single night in his life.
