He’s off to a nice $5K start w/ two R’s, then he buys three A’s and an I, picks an $1,800 N trio, but then gets into trouble w/ the MDW’s left side to lose $6,300. Sheryl then puts up a $1,600 pair of R’s, three O’s, and a $1,950 trio of L’s…

Sheryl isn’t relaxing on a PORCH SWING, but rather trying to make more money.
Round 4: EVENT
T for trouble is how she starts. The same goes for Ross w/ an S call. Third in line, Guillermo gets a hold of a $650 R, a $700 N, but then L for loss. After Sheryl misses again w/ H, Ross takes a $500 G, an E and two A’s, three $700 D’s, but that same BANKRUPT steals her 21 Benjamins. Guillermo then puts up a $5K B and a $700 C…

Ross‘ next chance to score begins w/ a $1,400 pair of T’s, but that same pesky BANKRUPT nails both her and Guillermo. Sheryl next puts up a $600 R, buys three I’s and two A’s, but she too gets that same spot as everybody else. After Ross says S for sorry, Guillermo lights up a $1,200 pair of N’s, two FP P’s, and a $650 G…
