Round 1: TITLE
First on his letter list are a $900 T, a $650 H, three E’s and A’s, two R’s for the SS wedge (this is from Furniture of America), but then the LaT. Albertine secondly strikes out w/ N. Pati thirdly takes a $1,300 D pair, but then buys a worthless O. Afterwards…

PP/Express Round: PHRASE
Pati‘s first moves are three $550 T’s, an E and two I’s, but the BANKRUPT near $3,500 goes wild on her and Ed (she loses $1,150 while he has to give back the MDW). Albertine‘s up next w/ a $1,650 H trio, a $1,300 S pair, two O’s, but then A for awful (the only bad one of this board). After Pati says N for no while on EXPRESS, Ed takes the $650 R and a single L while on EXPRESS before GOING ABOARD.
His Bank So Far: $1,650
