Charlie Southwell (with John D. Williams overlooking) takes a challenge at table 1. Joe Weinike (New York, NY) who was challenging the hook on Joel Wapnick's (Montréal QC) play. The word played ACTIN, is acceptable, but it was front hooked to LONELY, creating ALONELY*, so the play was ruled unacceptable.
