he started w/ STARE, too. Confirmation bias (from having already done the puzzle) stopped Blogic as soon as the first-blush run-thru parameters were met w/ TIMER. Upon further Blogic application, you're right; attacking the 29 words solution universe in reverse is actually statistically/Blogically better in ending w/ the "T" than starting w/ the "T", 11/29 vs. 10/29. While the "R" endings of those two are favored over the "R" starts 8/29 vs. 6/29. The "M's" are a wash. Running the "T" ending does yield "REMIT", which is the mirror image of TIMER.
.
Blogic weights the highest first pass scenario over the following passes, so while the "T" + "R" garners 18/29 vs. the "R" + "T" that garners 17/29, it means that they're basically a dead heat. One of the fun times where the puzzle pretty much doesn't care how it's attacked.
.
If I hadn't already done the puzzle starting w/ TARES, and had used STARE originally instead, I might've run the full Blogic, or maybe not....
it wasn't gonna be a two, so, a 3's a 3, a three.

I don't think it's fair to conclude a word is "easy" just because it contains some of the most commonly used letters. Not everyone plays that way or chooses the same common letters from the get go.

That said, it was still easy for me because...

No argument, especially when you invoke "plays" into the equation. Wordle hits me square in the old, retired, database developer's chops; so it's a personal challenge, not play. Candy Crush is play. Solitaire is play. A lot of guesses when I 'play' those games.

Check your spoiler for what Blogically follows your lucky first guess.
BTW, your 'lucky' first guess actually Blogics down to a svelte 8 possibles. Good job.
