Frequent stupid letter distribution?

multiple same letter or all vowel distribution frustrating at best.

This is a curious situation. It comes on in a wave, usually as a tidal wave of bad luck, but riding it out has not worked for me. It happens mostly with super hot players so I look like an absolute amateur for several rounds. It rarely rights itself without lots of trading for even more repeats of vowels or consonants and when you do finally make some beaut word using your vowels, you get accused of cheating or something. It's the tile gods playing tricks to make you look like you need more practice!!!

It is frustrating when this happens because you can't control the tiles. However rack management skills can to some extent alleviate the problem. For example suppose the highest scoring play leaves VW left on the rack. It may be worth considering a lower scoring play which leaves a vowel and a consonant on the rack. At least then you will know it is impossible to end up with all vowels or all consonants. As a general rule of thumb try and leave a balance of vowels and consonants on the rack even if it does not result in the highest scoring play.
