I've always loved to play long puzzles and since the new scoring system was introduced I set a personal goal of attaining a 1000+ points average by the end of the month (currently struggling).

To that end I strive to get the maximum number of points from every puzzle. But for the life of me I haven't cracked the code. I have several times got a new 'best time' yet only received less than the maximum points, sometimes as much as 200 less!

So how do you get the maximum number of points? What is the secret sauce recipe?
