    It’s an okay show when Toby won $33,900, even though we got our 8th Straight BR loss in a row, And who can blame him when he got just $100 less than the Cash Minimum of $34K?

    It Would’ve Been Nice For Toby To Accumulate The Million To Over $33,000 In Fact I Think It’s Time For Million Dollar Bonus Round Number 10 When It Comes To The Next Wheel of Fortune

    Too bad Toby struck out in the BR, but he still did a great job tonight.
