I used to always start with ADIEU followed by STORY unless the first guess E was yellow, then the 2nd guess would be STORE. A little over 50% of the time I'd solve in 4, ~65-70% in 3 or 4 (once at 2).

Then I visited my sister and forgot to play. So my 80+ winning streak was broken - too bad so sad.

When I got back to civilization I started playing in hard mode. Now I use AROSE as my starter. The next guesses depend on what hits I get. Once in a while, on a whim, I will start with RAISE instead. I still solve a little over 50% in 4, a little over 70% in 3 or 4. I've played 38 in hard mode so far with one loss, current streak is 33.
