Finals: Sarda/Block/Cooper - Part 2
February 12

The last three games were some of the most momentous in Jeopardy! history, as nine teenagers competed for three spots in this week's grand final. Some rose to the top like Barrett Block and Nilai Sarda. Others... they fell short, opening the way for the rare semifinal wild card in Leonard Cooper. All three have one thing in common. They all believe that they are 48 hours away from winning $75,000. Only one will take that honor.

Second place gets $25,000. Third gets $15,000. All tournament participants will receive the all new edition of Classroom Jeopardy! for their schools. All money will be determined, as always, by how far the players go in the tournament.

You're 30 minutes away from a Big Money Moment....

ENDS

Daily Double: $800 How Nobel of Them. This is hard to believe, but Nilai finds it out of the gate. So this will be a straight-play round. He bets $1000 on this: he got his job at age 4; 49 years later, in 1989, he won a Nobel Peace Prize. "Who is the Dalai Lama?" That would've been right, but Jimmy Carter puts the screws to him to the tune of -$1000.

Daily Double #1: $1200 It Happened in February. Nilai has a $2600 lead over Barrett, $8400 to his $5800. He fronts $2000 on this: though technically in winter, the protests that toppled Egypt's leader in February 2011 were part of this. "What is the Arab Spring?" Correct for $10,400!

Daily Double #2: $800 American Lit. Leonard has $18,200... and he's going to risk ALL OF IT! Well, most of it, $18,000. Here's the clue: in Reginald Rose's play "Twelve Angry Men", the men are all members of one of these. "What is a jury?" .... CORRECT FOR $36,200!

At the end of the round...

$14,400 $9,000 $37,000
Nilai Barrett Leonard

Let's do some math. If Barrett were to double it, the $18,000, added to his $17,600, would NOT be enough to win. He picked a bad day to have a bad day. If Nilai were to double it, the $28,800, added to his $19,000, would give him $47,800. Leonard could bet to lock out Nilai, but the smarter play, if he didn't know what to do, would be to freeze out Barrett, who would be $3400 short if he doubled. Bottom line for Leonard, who did what he had to do today, the magic number is $3401 and not one dollar more.

Final Jeopardy! category: MILITARY MEN

 

ON JUNE 6, 1944 HE SAID "THE EYES OF THE WORLD ARE UPON YOU"

 

Correct response: who was Dwight D. Eisenhower?

Barrett's response: who is Dwight D. Eisenhower? CORRECT. Wager: $9000. Total: $18,000.
Nilai's response: who is Winston Churchill FDR? WRONG. Wager: $7000. Total: $7400.
Leonard's response: who is... some guy in Normandy, but I just won $75,000! WRONG. Wager: $0. Total: $37,000.

Wrong... but not incorrect!
