She opens w/ a $1,300 pair of T’s, two O’s and a U, and two $500 F’s, but after her buy of two A’s is the LaT. Second, Penny spins up a $1,200 pair of R’s, three E’s, a $650 G, and an I to clean out the vowels, but the BANKRUPT near $2,500 cleans her out of $1,350. Adrian decides to just solve…

Mystery Round: SAME NAME

Penny strikes out on the spot w/ T. Second, Adrian wastes a turn w/ the other normal BANKRUPT. Third, Katy FPs a single E, but her S call’s no good. On Penny’s second turn, she’s lit up a $600 R, a couple A’s, two N’s for the Swiss tour, double I’s, and the same number of G’s for $1,300 more. Following her FP of the sole dud vowel of O, she says a $3,500 D, the last vowel of U, a $550 B, and a $1,300 pair of P’s before solving all of this…
