Daily Double #1: $1200 Royal Story Problems. Anne ($7000 to Steve's $8000 and Orlando's $6600) fronts $2000. The clue: if Henry IV & Henry VIII traveled 4/8 of a mile from London to Windsor, their coach has gone this many feet. Anne's response: "What is 2640 feet?" Correct for $9000.

Anne - $13,800
Orlando - $12,200

Coach Chico says: This wasn't the blowout it was in the first round. And old habits are dying hard for Steve. Let's look at the final...

Final Jeopardy! Category: In the News. Answer: Launched in 2004, a spacecraft named Messenger is on a mission to study this planet. Correct response: What is Mercury?

Steve's question: What is Mars? (WRONG) Wager: $9000. Final score: $3200.
Anne's question: What is Mercury? (RIGHT) Wager: doesn't matter, because she's a - FINALIST

Coach Chico Says...: For the record, Anne won this game with $20,000. Meaning that if Orlando came up with the right response, he would've gone onto next week's final. As it is, and she proved this in her match yesterday, Anne simply had the mental dexterity, and it's going to make her one to watch in the final.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Biblical Names. Answer: This biblical figure's name comes from the Hebrew word meaning "to be drawn" from the water. Correct response: Who is Moses?
Peter's question: Who is Noah? (WRONG) Wager: $14,200. Final score: $0.
Michael's question: Who is Moses? (RIGHT) Wager: doesn't matter, because he's a - FINALIST

Coach Chico Says...: Again, for posterity purposes only, $9401 was the final wager, and $28,401 for the final total. Michael's been a silent fighter, not having any REAL moment to take the lead save for the Daily Double in round 1, but more often than not, the silent killers prove to be the deadliest. He's going to give it all he's got in the final, and that may have Anne quaking as she did on Tuesday. He's not a lock, though, as Ruvani and Wes are still waiting in the wings for their final, and they could prove more than a match.
