Madhavi (a female) solves “LADY OF SPAIN, I ADORE YOU” (this was written all the way back in 1931). Last American panel this week…

Madhavi Sethna: professor who teaches students who want to be teachers from Carrollton, GA

$2K Tossup: WAYD?

_ _ _ N _
B _ _ _ _ A _ K _ _ G

Danielle could be GOING BACKPACKING.

LAST EUROPEAN TRIP: Switzerland/Austria/Bavaria worth $9,898

Round 1: PEOPLE

First on this lady’s list are three $650 S’s, a $600 T, four A’s, two $650 R’s, a C for the Swiss tour, and an O. But after an N for the WC is a possibly fatal purchase of I. After Mike strikes out w/ D, Madhavi calls up $700 H and P singles, and a $600 K…

S H A _ _ S P _ A R _ A N

…she solves SHAKESPEAREAN ACTORS to triple her $1K.

DUDS: I (Danielle), D (Mike)

Madhavi: $3K/Danielle: $2K/Mike: $0


Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Here goes Mike w/ the calling of two $600 N’s, two D’s to double his initial bank, four $500 T’s, two A’s, two $500 H’s, and four O’s, after which he says a $900 S, three E’s, the last vowel of I, a C for the 1/2 CAR near orange $900 and three $500 R’s. Board…

_ R E N C H
T O / T H E / _ R I D E
A N D / _ R O O _

…here’s a FRENCH TOAST TO THE BRIDE AND GROOM and he has scored his first $7,300.


Madhavi: $3K/Danielle: $2K/Mike: $7,300


PP/Express Round: PLACE

Madhavi’s initial picks are three $700 N’s, but then a not-so-good consonant of G. Second, Danielle picks off $10,500 worth of two S’s and a D (the latter via her WC usage), a $700 L, and two A’s, followed by two $700 T’s, three E’s, two I’s, the last vowel of O, but then the BANKRUPT near TOP DOLLAR to flush away $11,600…

A N _ I E N T / L A N D
O _ / _ _ S T E _ I E S

…and Mike wins himself a trip to and ANCIENT LAND OF MYSTERIES — Peru worth $10,098.

SOLE DUD: G (Madhavi)

Madhavi: $3K/Danielle: $2K/Mike: $17,398 cash & Peru

    What was it was a Disappointing show. That is until the $6K final spin resulting in Mike in winning $62K and why need $50K when he won $12K more than that?

    My rating: 8
