LAST B&B TRIP OF WK.: The Inn of the Patriots in NC worth $8,158
Round 1: SHOW BIZ
She’s off to a bad start w/ the MDW’s right side. Second, Yvette calls up a $1,300 pair of R’s, five E’s, two T’s for another $1,400, and three A’s before she LOSES A TURN. Third, Eben picks up the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900 w/ four L’s, buys six I’s and an O to clean out the vowels and lights up quad C’s for another $2K (he mistakenly picked up the North Carolina wedge while looking at Yvette’s arrow). Three $900 S’s later…

SOLE LaT: Yvette
SOLE BANKRUPT: Amanda
Amanda: $3K/Yvette: $0/Eben: $6,200 1/2 CAR
Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Yvette says an automatic dud of R. Second, Eben spins up the same BANKRUPT to lose his plate. Third, Amanda FPs four O’s, lights up a $700 S, but then buys the sole dud vowel of E. Yvette’s second turn ends quickly w/ that same BANKRUPT (and she tried to call for an N). As it turns out, a null cycle has been left in because Eben and Amanda dud out w/ L and M, respectively (Eben was on the other 1/2 CAR). Yvette’s third try sees her putting up an $1,800 pair of N’s but then re-buying the O. Eben then gets the WC w/ two T’s, buys two A’s…

PP/Express Round: FUN & GAMES
First for that guy at the end are a $1,600 pair of R’s, six A’s, but then the other MDW BANKRUPT to lose $1,350 and his WC. Second for Amanda are a $650 N, two $500 D’s, double O’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to give back $1,400. Third, Yvette sees in her future five $800 S’s, but the sole dud vowel of E fails a lady for the second straight round. Next for Eben are an F for the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900, two $900 B’s, an I, a $500 T, the last vowel of U and an L via EXPRESS. He GOES ABOARD…but his next call of M takes the Versa out of play and rids him of $3,300. He quickly gets his turn back after the women dud out w/ W and C, respectively. Following a $1,600 pair of K’s…
