edit: xanthos with 'th' of course
Notice that most of the tiles have been placed. Therefore the opponent can only have certain tiles in his hand. If you can find what he played last then you can narrow it further (as he must have played the best word possible). Knowing your opponent's hand means you know what he will play next (again best scoring word).
And that's all the hints I'm giving for now.
