Scrabble stats not updating
Both were inspired by the fact that while the language had changed dramatically from the time Butts performed his calculations, the game of Scrabble had not. Since Scrabble was adopted in chess parlors in New York in the 1950s, competitive players have dissected its strategic quirks.
One early realization was that short words have outsized value, so players scoured the preferred source (the now-defunct Funk & Wagnalls Standard College Dictionary) and compiled lists of two- and three-letter words.

I have in my possession two tiles from a prototype of the game that would become Scrabble.

I have been reading quite a few articles, but did not get enough evidence for the exact reason why update stats job running on of our database server executing on a database of around 16 TB causing quite a heavy blocking: The job uses : EXEC sp_update_stats and completes in 10-12 hours In that duration some of the queries are blocked with below wait types: Please suggest how can we overcome and is it true that manually update stats can cause that blocking Also, is there a way to make this run faster than that?

They are made of plywood with the letters stenciled in India ink. Any Scrabble player can tell you that the X is actually worth eight points.One or the other found that B, C, F, H, K, M, P, X, Y, and Z are overvalued, which makes some intuitive sense.For instance, the X (eight points) and the Z (10) can be easy money, especially since they occur in a number of short words; bumping them down to six points apiece is a logical move.The letters are also picked up from the bag randomly (no matter which difficulty level you have picked).
These labels mark premium tiles: Double Letter, Double Word, Triple Letter, Triple Word.Similarly, the H was set by Butts at four points, but it now appears in nine two-letter words and combines beautifully with other letters, while the M appears in 12 two-letter words.
