Semifinals: Eanet/Stoffers/D'addario
February
10

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.

The losers of this match get $10,000. The winners get Nick Yozamp and Surya Sabhapathy

Daily Double: $800 Alphabetic Letter Pairs. Lindsay has $3600 to Ryan's $4600. Dan has $2200. Lindsay bets $1100 on this: if you have this blood type, you're lucky; it's the "universal recipient". "What is AB?" Correct for $4700 and the lead!

PHR--

Daily Double #1: $1600 Band Names. Lindsay's up to $9900 to Dan's $2600. Ryan, still at $5400. Lindsay fronts $2000 on this: this band's name refers to what bassist Mike Kroeger said when giving a coin in change at Starbucks. "What is Nickelback?" Correct for $11,900!

Lindsay would go to sweep the category, putting her at $13,900! Ryan would then find...

Daily Double #2: $2000 Nonfiction ... with $5800. He bets $2500 of it on this: a 2009 biography of this builder of Grand Central Terminal calls him "The first tycoon". "Who is Vanderbilt?" Correct for $8300!

End of the round scores...

Lindsay Ryan Dan

We have a 4/5 for Shore's Conjecture according to our friends at J-Archive.com...

- Dan wins if... he bets everything and is correct, and the other two bet against each other and lose.
- Ryan wins if... he bets between $6401 (weak) and $8699 (strong) and is right. Remember, though. this is a tournament semifinal, so better to keep Dan covered than to keep Lindsay covered.
- Lindsay wins if... she bets $12,301 and is right OR she anticipates Ryan's bet and bets $5501.

Final Jeopardy! category: AMERICAN HEROES

 

HE SAID, "I WISH TO HAVE NO CONNECTION WITH ANY SHIP THAT DOES NOT SAIL FAST; FOR I INTEND TO GO IN HARM'S WAY"

 

Correct response: who was John Paul Jones?

Dan's response: who was Peary? WRONG. Wager: $3100. Total: $300.
Ryan's response: who was John Paul Jones? CORRECT. Wager: $9000. Total: $24,500.
Lindsay's response: who was Dewey? WRONG. Wager doesn't matter.

FINALIST: Ryan Stoffers

Ryan started strong. Lindsay then kept pace and overtook. But Ryan had one thing that Lindsay didn't... the correct response in the Final. That's why he's going to the championship tomorrow.

Joining him...
