Buffalo, New York РA 24 year old from Portland has toppled the Michael Jordan of the world of Scrabble at the National Scrabble Championship in Buffalo, New York. Conrad Bassett-Bouchard takes home a check for $10,000. The reigning champ from  New Zealand finished a disappointing 16th.

Bassett-Bouchard says he’s been playing Scrabble since he was 3 years old and figured out he was pretty good when he was 14. He practices every day and says his secret weapon for getting tournament ready is a website that helps you created real words out of a bunch of jumbled letters.
