VEGAS TRIP: Green Valley Ranch Resort (the vegas.BUZZ one should be offered tomorrow)

Round 1: CHARACTER

John and Montana BANKRUPT right out of the gate (him near TD, her on MDW’s right side). Third in line already, Susi calls up a $1,400 pair of S’s, two E’s, three $700 N’s, three A’s and O’s, and the last vowel of I via FP. She follows w/ an $1,800 R trio, a FP M, three $600 T’s and a G at $600 a pop, and a $650 L…

T O N _ / S T A R _ ‘ S

…she solves TONY STARK’S ALTER EGO “IRON MAN” for $8,100.

QUICK BANKRUPTS: 2 (opponents)

Susi: $8,100/John: $2K/Montana: $0

———–

Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

Montana gets started w/ a $1,200 pair of N’s, three $650 S’s, four E’s, but then D for dud while on the MW near $650. Second, Susi uncovers a $1,100 pair of R’s, buys the other non-U vowels, but then strikes out w/ L. Third, John gets the 1/2 CAR near $900 and Vegas trip w/ M and three T’s, respectively, lights up the SL bonus of three $800 P’s, and FPs a single F before calling a C while on the MW near LaT. Believe it or not, he’s risking $11,900 cash & trip plus his plate…YOU FOOL. Montana then picks off the $600 Y and G for the other 1/2 CAR to complete the board…

P A Y M E N T S

…and solve for her first four grand.

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Susi leads off w/ a $2,100 trio of T’s, two O’s, three E’s, but then the LaT. Second for John are a $1,400 pair of S’s, two FP A’s, two $650 N’s, but the D fails somebody again. Third, Montana spins the same normal BANKRUPT to forfeit her plate. Susi then buys the three I’s to clean out the vowels, lights up a $1,200 pair of V’s and FPs double H’s…

    Happy birthday Lesly and Judy.

    But John’s gamble is almost unheard of! You don’t risk a trip and that much $$$ (particularly cash you earned from the SAME LETTER) on a Mystery wedge.

    Let’s be fair, you totally forgot to count my $3,000 from the last toss-up. I left with $7,000, not $4,000 lol.

    (Either way, not a bad day’s work)

    Good show to avoid a Skunk this week and it comes from Susi winning the BR.
