Comment by Rob Botello

This is a trick question because you have both the player pictured and the name you’re asking different. The card shows Zack with a “k” & in the question you ask Zach with an “h”. Also interesting because in the beckett search you have both players, so guessing that needs to be corrected too. I’m putting answers for both because you’re basically asking for both. (That should make me default winner if no one else does the same)

1. 28 Autos as Zack , 4 Autos as Zach, so total & final answer is 32 Autos Total

2. Yes

Nick K is the winner as noted above.
