Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
The Hendersons can’t capitalize on TD w/ N. Second, the Scotts spin up a $600 R, a $700 S, four O’s, an A, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose $800. Third, the Hubers come up w/ an $1,800 T trio, but then a baddie of I. The Hendersons then FP the last vowel of U, but they and the Scotts get that same normal BANKRUPT. The Hubers follow w/ an $1,800 F trio, and a $1,200 pair of H’s.
