    Nice gamble, Pam. It sure gave you the win. But BGHO would've nailed the BR.

    Bonus Round Comments:
    In Vowels, O was so good, Unfortunately, the consonants falls for her.
    B, G and H would had helped!
    BGHO combination made her but IMO, homebuyers is NOT one-word..
    home and buyers are two-word combination. Anyway, this puzzle is tough today.
    I think Harry prepared some hard puzzles in the bonus round this season!
    Looks like Harry is now in the budget-saving mode. So many losses this month!
    4 wins and 9 losses? Too greasy….
