Semifinals: Anthony-Libresco/Walker/Sabhapathy
February
9

Last week, the 15 students battled it out in five elimination matches. Five winners and four wild cards came out of those matches, and now we've reached the critical semifinal phase. It's win-or-go-home as the final nine compete for only three spots in Thursday and Friday's final.  At stake: $100,000, the title of 2010 Jeopardy! College Champion, and a berth in the next Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions.

Second place is guaranteed $50,000, while third will get $25,000 in a standard two-week event. Semifinalists are guaranteed at least $10,000. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

Nick Yozamp is waiting in the wings for the next two challengers.

Daily Double #1: $800 African Americans. Ashley is currently on $1800, tied with Leah. Surya has $5800. Ashley fronts $1200 on this: a biography of this former Cabinet secretary is subtitled "Soldier and Statesman". "Who is Colin Powell?" Correct for $3000.

Daily Double #2: $1200 Alex Trebek, Class of '61. Leah has $6600 to Surya's $9400. Ashley's in the red by a deuce. Leah bets $2000 on this: in October my US pals dusted off their draft cards as US & Soviet tanks faced off against each other in this capital. "What is Ho Chi Minh City?" No, it was Berlin.

And it's all gravy from here as the time-up beeps sound right afterwards...

$4,600 -$200 $9,400
Leah Ashley Surya

Ashley can't win because she's under by $200, making her ineligible for Final Jeopardy!. Leah can't win because she has less than half of Surya's total. As our friends at J-Archive.com would say about now to Surya... "Bet $199 and enjoy your victory." The spot in the final is yours to lose.

Final Jeopardy! category: ASTRONOMY

 

WITH A MASS OF 4.31 MILLION SUNS, SAGITTARIUS A* IS THOUGHT TO BE A SUPERMASSIVE ONE OF THESE IN THE MILKY WAY'S CENTER

 

Correct response: what is a black hole?

Leah's response: what is a black hole? CORRECT. Wager: $4600. Total: $9200.
Surya's response: what is a black hole? CORRECT. Wager doesn't matter.

FINALIST: Surya Sabhapathy

This was one of the more anticlimactic semis in Jeopardy! history, as we had a flameout in the main game, leading to two people in the final, one of whom couldn't get a run going to stave off the other. Hopefully Surya can get a run going in the final. Only then will she stand a chance.

Next three finalists tomorrow.
