Round 1: MOVIE QUOTE
He opens up w/ two R’s for the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900, buys five E’s and three A’s, calls up an S and two N’s at $650 apiece, and buys and O before saying B for bad while on the Shop Your Way shopping spree. Second, Amir picks a $700 T, but the MDW’s right side gets him just as quick. Third, Jerry uncovers three F’s for $2,400, a $900 C, and two M’s for the other 1/2 CAR. After he buys the leftover O and U…

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Amir kicks off w/ a $1,400 pair of T’s, but the BANKRUPT near $650 strikes. Second, Jerry can’t capitalize on $3,500 w/ a dud of N. Third, James has the same fate w/ an S call. Amir restarts w/ a $900 R, A and E singles, two $600 B’s, and an H while on the MW near LaT. He risks the $1,600 to find…$$$! But after he buys two U’s, he repeats the B to likely throw away $11,350. After Jerry runs into the other MDW BANKRUPT to hand over his plate, James spingles for a $1K G…
