He turns down the $5K bailout to risk three grand…$$$. Following his buys of two O’s an A, he picks up the gas cards (Route 66 on the front) w/ three P’s, but makes the one critical dud purchase of I. Over to Ryan who says a $1,400 pair of S’s, but that same MDW BANKRUPT gets him too. Saskia BANKRUPTs again w/ the one near $650, so she and Ryan have three BANKRUPTs apiece.

    Wow. Tough show with 7 Bankrupts, a 5K risk for $10K and it works, winning by only $900 and BR bit him very hard.

    BR from season 24 in september 2007 wasn’t solved for $45K.

    Happy that Saskia got on the board, because those 2 men were dominant.

    My rating: Low 6
