In the May 1979 issue of Word Ways I modified Ron Jerome's 1961-point single-move Scrabble score using open sources, adding another point to it. Then in the August 1979 issue further modifications enabled another three points to be eked out. By altering four of the scouring words, I have now been able to push the total up to 1970 points, which may be approaching the limit for the bets known base-word BENZOXYCAMPHORS.
