G & K first spin up the same MDW BANKRUPT. Second, C & T uncover two $500 N’s, a G for that MDW, two obvious I’s, but then R for roadblock. The boys are third in line w/ a $3,500 S, a $700 T, an E, two A’s to clean out the vowels, a $500 H, but then M for mistake (they we’re thinking MATCHING for the first word). G & K then lights up a $7K pair of C’s only to lose it right back to the same normal BANKRUPT. C & T then put up a $900 P…

Unfortunately, they spin up the BANKRUPT near $650 to give up that MDW. Second, the boys LaT out. Third, G & K are caught by the same BANKRUPT they got late last round (that’s their third one of the game). As we start fresh again w/ C & T, they pick off a $650 R, two E’s, a $600 N, a FP A, a $600 S, but then the LaT. After those boys BANKRUPT near TD, G & K proceed to call a $600 M, two FP I’s, and C for crud. C & T LaT again, allowing the boys to say a $5K T and a $700 G…
