Did anyone ever realize that the highest possible score is not 24113 as popularly believed?
Anyway, I just submitted this to Microsoft Support:

The high score is incorrect & scoring explanation incomplete & ambiguous. No points are awarded for 7 starting cards! Bonus is stated for times over 30 seconds & no bonus for times under 30 but does not mention 30 seconds. (Technically, you must finish in 9 seconds, starting at 21 seconds to avoid time deductions for the highest score.) Also doesn't mention rounding or truncating bonus.
(45*5)+(52*10)=745 700000/30=23333.3 700000/31=22580.6.
Highest score possible is 24078 or 23325 or 23326.

( based on their ( incorrect ) calculation, I assume points are awarded at 30 seconds, making the high score = 24078 )
