A scrabblematic problem (Posted on 2016-03-25) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Using not more than 16 tiles from a standard Srabble game create an alphametic equation w1+w2=w3 , where w1,w2,w3 are English words and the sum of scrabble values of the participating tiles is maximal.

Rem1: The alphametic must have only one solution.
Rem2: The words used must be listed at this online scrabble dictionary.
Rem3: The letters' values are here.
Rem4: Try to do better than HEIGHT+QUIZ=TRUDGE (my example).

So far the highest score is derived from:
EXEQUY + JEFF = YAKUZA 64
595176 +8544 = 603720 ..…. contributed by Ady Tzidon
EXEQUY - (n) funeral rites
JEFF -(n) men’s name
YAKUZA -(n) Japanese mob
Second best is:
QUEAZY + JYNX = ANANKE 58
195238 6807 202045 …. Contributed by Dej Mar
QUEAZY - nauseated; ill
JYNX - wryneck, an Old World bird akin to the woodpeckers that was also considered a bird of ill-omen
ANANKE - (n.) fated necessity
