Finals: Betts/Tucker/Myers - Part 2
May
15

For the last three weeks, you could notice the championship trophy in the corner of the set at Sony. So far, it has inscribed on it 20 names (in fact, if you have an HDTV and you look closely enough, you could notice two favorites of ours: Vinita Kailasanath and Kevin Marshall). Tomorrow, we add name #21... It'll be Eric Betts of Emory, Patrick Tucker of Notre Dame, or Laura Myers of Missouri.

For three of the 15 people that came to play last week, it's time for finals... No, not that nightmarish hell that could deep-six 50 percent of your grade, but rather, two days of intense trivial combat that could pay off in $100,000.

Any one of our three players can walk away with six figures and perhaps a berth in the next Tournament of Champions. Second place will take home at least $50,000, while third will have to settle for a guarantee of $25,000.

We're thirty minutes from a big money moment...

Jeopardy! round..

WARS BY BATTLE GETTING YOUR ACTOR TOGETHER SCINTILLATING SYLLABUS EUROPE FUN WITH FASHION MISSING WORDS

Daily Double: $1000 Wars By Battle. Laura has $1400 to Patrick's $1600. Eric has $2000. She decides to make it a true Daily Double on this: 1415: the Battle of Agincourt. "What is the Hundred Years' War?" Correct to double to $2800!

At the end of the Jeopardy! round...

Eric Patrick Laura

Double Jeopardy! categories:

TAKE ME TO THE BALLET! BE A SPORT YOU: STAYING YOUNG LITERARY CHARACTERS ON TWITTER HAIL TO THE CHIEF "Y"S UP!

Daily Double #1: $1600 Hail to the Chief. Patrick got the first three clues in this category and as a result leads with $5600. He bets $3000 on this: he told Lincoln, "If you are as happy in entering the White House as I feel on returning (home), you are a happy man indeed". "Who was Buchanan?" Correct for $8600!

Daily Double #2: $1600 Take Me to the Ballet! Eric is stuck on $10,600, while Laura dips to $8600. But this clue is about Patrick and his $16,600. He fronts just $400 on this: Iím allergic to feathers, so donít let me sit too close to Odett in this classic ballet. "What is 'Swan Lake'?" Correct for $17,000!

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

$13,400 $19,000 $8,600
Eric Patrick Laura

Some key notes...

- Laura is pretty much out of it if Eric and Patrick play this right.

- The magic number for Eric: $999. The optimum that Patrick can bet to put the tournament away is $7601. The only way that Eric can thwart such a victory is by betting $999.

Final Jeopardy! category: 19th CENTURY AMERICANS

 

THIS NEW ENGLANDER BEGAN BUILDING HIS HOUSE IN MARCH 1845 & LATER WROTE THAT IT COST EXACTLY $28.12 1/2

Eric's response: who was Nathaniel Hawthorne? WRONG. Wager: $2899. Total: $10,501.
Patrick's response: who is Sears? WRONG. Wager: $7601. Total: $11,399.

Patrick did the right thing in his wager. Eric... the wrong. And as a result...
