Default Getting the most out of board

I keep noticing boards that LOOK like they ought to have a lot of points -- there are certainly enough words, and the rest of the stats look good, too. But the board has been played a whole lot of times, and by people who usually score pretty high, and the high score isn't nearly what it ought to be. I've seen boards played by Sheffek, and RussDNails, and other really good players where their top score is 500 or even less and I would have thought it would be at least a couple of hundred points higher.

Blow their high score away. Select the board, then rotate it TWICE, so that all the words that used to be there but backwards are now right way around. I just did that and outscored someone I had never outscored before, and did so by nearly 100 points.
