She opens w/ a $600 N, an I, two obvious G’s for $1,600 more, three E’s, three $700 T’s, and two A’s, after which she picks three $600 S’s, three O’s, two $500 R’s, two U’s, and a $700 F before finally LOSING A TURN to leave $6,550 on the table. Moving on to Jonathan who puts up a W for the NH trip, a $500 M, a $900 Y, and a TD P (why that instead of the L’s, sir?)…
