    Oh my god! One of the huge wins to date for this season thanks to Sheri winning big in the Main game with $77,100 and then went on to win the BR to leave with $110,100 biggest winner this season. Great episode especially with top dollar being hit in the final spin. Great time to surpass $200K this week. $187,000 so far this week

    My rating: PERFECT 10! (Huge Bullish Day for Shari!)

    I was amazed at her winnings last night. This has to be some kind of record? When I do a search I see Matt DeSanto had an unofficial record at $91,892.

    Sheri is up there with Emil and Matt as one of the best Wheel of Fortune players of all time. She knew nearly every puzzle straight away, but unlike some who like to show off and refuse to risk anything once they know a puzzle, Sheri built up her bank before solving and thanks to her attraction to the top dollar wedge she was able to win big in EVERY round as a result. The bonus round just proved to be the cherry on top of a very deserved six figure win.

    My Rating: 10
