Round 1: THING
He gets started w/ a $1,200 pair of S’s, three T’s to add $2,100, three E’s, a couple $550 R’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose $4,150. Second, Karla obtains the WC w/ two H’s, but next is D for dud. Third, Rebecca calls out an $800 N, a $650 K, and a single I, but the LaT stops her. After Joe spins up the other normal BANKRUPT, Karla puts up a $600 C, three U’s, an A, a $900 L, and the last vowel of O, but the MDW’s right side forces her to give up $1,750 and her WC.
