Round 1: AROUND THE HOUSE
She BANKRUPTs near $650 right out of the gate. Second, Tina calls up a $1,300 T pair, three E’s, three $700 R’s, and an A, then she picks a $1K pair of L’s, a $650 P, two I’s to wipe out the vowel shop, but then D for dud. After Don craps out w/ C, Lauren puts up a $1,200 pair of S’s…

DUDS: D (Tina), C (Don)
Mystery Round: SAME LETTER
T for trouble is how Tina starts. Second, Don puts up five S’s while on the MW near $650 and goes for the doubler…it backfires. Third, Lauren misses w/ R while on the collette wedge. After Tina strikes out again w/ an N, Don puts up an M for the 1/2 CAR near $900, but then buys a worthless E. Lauren then lights up a $600 D, two O’s, four B’s for the WC (also the SL), and two U’s to clean out the vowels…
