Finals: Beachum/Chung/Zsenak - Part 2
May 1
6

While college seniors all across the country are graduating, nine of last week's players are graduating to the next level, the semi-finals. For three of them, the road to $100,000 and a slot in the next Tournament of Champions continues. For the other six, the dream ends here at the Kohl Center in Madison.

This Spring Classic is another standard two-week affair, advancing the winners of last week's games as well as four wild-cards, high scorers among non-winners. All of this week's players will be guaranteed $10,000 for their participation. And in the end, only the winner will advance, hence the phrase, "Win or go home."

The first runner-up receives $50,000 at least, while the second runner-up wins at least $25,000. As always, any and all winnings accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

And then... there were three.

Jeopardy! categories:

STATE FACTS BIBLE STORIES POTPOURRI WORD ORIGINS TELEVISION NEW REALITY SHOWS?

Daily Double: $800 Bible Stories. Joey finds it early. "I like money, so let's go for $1200." The clue: on this festival, Galileans could suddenly talk like Parthians & Medes. "What is Pentecost?" Correct for $2400!

At the end of the Jeopardy! round...

$9,400 $3,400 $2,600
Joey Andrew Danielle

Double Jeopardy! categories:

HAIL TO THE CHIEF HAPPY MADISON WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME? LET'S GO TO THE BALLET FIGHT SONGS SLANGUAGE

Daily Double #1: $1600 Hail to the Chief. Joey leads by a mile with $11,800 to Andrew's $3400 and Danielle's $2600. He bets $5000 on this: in the 1912 Election, he defeated the sitting President & a former President. "Who is Woodrow Wilson?" Correct for $16,800!

Daily Double #2: $1600 What's Wrong with Me? Andrew trails by a hefty amount. He needs to make a big bet to stay alive... "At this point, it's go big or go home. $4200." The clue: if you have a case of singultus, relax, it's just these spasms of the diaphragm. "*Hic* What are hiccups?" Correct for $8400!

At the end of the Double Jeopardy! Round...

$24,400 $10,400 $13,000
Joey Andrew Danielle

Now let's take a look...

Andrew has to bet at least $7602 to match Danielle's total from yesterday, meaning that at this point, he's pretty much playing for pride. Better to bet it all.

The best score Danielle can post is $56,000. The best score that Joey can post is $64,000. So long as Joey bets NO LESS than $16,401 AND is correct, he has this one in the bag. Otherwise, he has to bet $5601 and hope that Danielle went for it and missed.

Final Jeopardy! category: ALLIANCES

 

THE QUADRUPLE ALLIANCE BEGAN IN 1813 AGAINST THIS COUNTRY; IN 1818 IT LET THIS COUNTRY IN & BECAME THE QUINTUPLE ALLIANCE

 

Correct response: what is France?

Andrew's response: what is congrats to the winner, West is Best? WRONG. Wager: $10,400. Total: $0.
Danielle's response: what is France? RIGHT. Wager: $3000. Total: $16,000.
Joey's response: what is France? :) RIGHT. Wager: $6800. Total: $31,200

If you look at the numbers, you'll see that this wasn't a case of Joey beating Danielle, as it was a case of Danielle beating herself, by $400.
