I have read countless books and watched many videos that help you improve your scrabble. What these resourcess fail to take into consideration is the player’s ability.
Some of these resources are created by amateurs who have only a moderate skill level. They teach strategies that may be effective at that ( low ) level, but it may stifle your improvement overall.
On the flipside, you have world class pros who come up with these resources who are so caught up in their bubble of intricate and sophisticated scrabble that the majority of the scrabble players cannot relate to.
What is required is a resource that is able to cater to a player’s specific skill level without it being overwhelming, neither it being too simple that you lose interest.
I have overseen the development of absolute beginners making improvements to their game step by step until they reach a very good standard of play. I have also coached players who play at the world stage and have achieved honours and titles.
Having coached players with such varied levels of skill, in my opinion I find that there are 4 categories of players.
