Bob solves ENGRAVED INVITATION.
Round 1: PHRASE
He wastes a turn w/ the BANKRUPT near big bucks. Second, Herlonda calls up a $600 S, two T’s for the WC, three I’s, three $600 N’s, but then A for awful. After Brittany misses w/ L, Bob puts up a $600 R, three O’s, and a $5K pair of P’s…
O P O R T _ N I T _

INSTANT BANKRUPT: Bob
Herlonda: WC/Brittany: $1K/Bob: $7,350
Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Herlonda strikes out on the spot w/ S. Brittany secondly LaTs out. Third, Bob picks up the Caribbean wedge w/ two N’s, four E’s, a $1,300 T pair, and an A before he says three R’s while on the MW near LaT and declining the gamble (good call; that’s the BANKRUPT one). After he buys two O’s, he thought he would choose another consonant, but it’s Herlonda who has the WC. Following a FP M, he comes up w/ two $800 D’s (again, he tries to pick another consonant after calling one), but then L for loss. After Herlonda misses again w/ H, Brittany puts up a C for the 1/2 CAR near $600 but LaTs out. Bob then pus up the $500 V and the other two vowels…
