TRIP WEDGE: Hotel Grand Pacific in Victoria, BC

Round 1: PLACE

Her first pickings are a $700 R, but then S for sorry. Second, Jessica spins up an $800 T, buys three E’s and two A’s, but then gives back the $300 remainder to the BANKRUPT near $2,500. After Bruce LaTs out, Ashley comes up w/ an O, two N’s for that WC, three I’s, an $1,800 L trio, a U, and two FP F’s. Board…

Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

Jessica wastes a spin w/ the MDW’s left side. Second, Bruce digs up two T’s while on the MW near $650 and turns down the $2K offer for hopefully five times as much…sorry. Third, Ashley‘s caught by the other normal BANKRUPT, so goodbye WC. After Jessica duds out w/ N on the trip wedge, Bruce takes an $1,800 R trio, buys two E’s and A’s, and gets the SL bonus of five $600 C’s. He follows w/ a $550 H, two I’s, a $1,300 S pair, four O’s to clean out the vowels, and a $1,500 L trio before he finally goes for the solve…

    Disappointing show. I had the BR solution right even with the D and a O, but Ashley failed to solve it sending the BR week to 1 out of 5 BR wins. 7 BR wins so far this season, we seriously need to get BR wins.

    My rating: 5
