Third, Elaine calls up a $900 R, four E’s, a $900 N, and an A, followed by two D’s for the other 1/2 CAR, but then the MDW’s left side to lose the plate and $2,300. Julianne’s second turn sees her picking a $500 H, but then getting the exact same fate as Elaine. Tandra next puts up a $650 M, but then repeats the A.
