    Expert - I found this info:

    From https://www.slate.com

    On Oct. 12, 2006 in the basement of a Unitarian church on the town green in Lexington, Mass., a carpenter named Michael Cresta scored 830 points in a game of Scrabble. His opponent, Wayne Yorra, who works at a supermarket deli counter, totaled 490 points. The two men set three records for sanctioned Scrabble in North America: the most points in a game by one player (830), the most total points in a game (1,320), and the most points on a single turn (365, for Cresta's play of QUIXOTRY).

    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrabble#Records

    Michael Cresta has the highest score using the OSPD (North American) Scrabble dictionary, playing "quixotry" for 365 points. Karl Khonshnaw holds the record with the international SOWPODS dictionary: "caziques" for 392 points (one of the five words that award the highest possible score).

    oxyphenbutazone is the highest word with 1830 points
