Jackpot Round: SHOW BIZ
The Russos begin w/ four Jackpot T’s but then the MDW’s right side. The Morans secondly call up a $550 H and seven E’s, but they then get the exact same fate. Third, the Roses find a $300 R, two A’s, a $400 N and two Jackpot L’s…but can’t solve for a $7,250 pot. Afterwards, they put up a G for the WC, the last vowel of O, a $500 F for the blue 1/2 KIA, and a $550 D before calling two critical duds in Y via FP and W.
