Second, Amanda digs up a $3,500 F, three E’s, two N’s for the 1/2 CAR near $600, an O, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to lose $4K and the plate.

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Down Amanda’s path first are a $600 T, an R for the other 1/2 CAR, three E’s, four A’s, but then the MDW’s left side to take the Fiesta out of play and cost her $600. Luther secondly takes a $700 C, an I, a $500 D, and the other two vowels, after which he spins up a $10,500 trio of L’s, a $600 S, but then the same MDW BANKRUPT to plunge $11,550 down the tubes. Tevi then puts up a $1,400 pair of Y’s…

I / C O U L D

      I agree. An awful show today. An O would have done it in the BR. Why did Tevi call an A?
