Finals: Nissley/Wright/Craig - Part 2
November 15

And so it's come to this. After eight days of grueling mental combat, only the cream has risen to the grand final of the Jeopardy! 2011 Tournament of Champions. In two games, Tom Nissley, Buddy Wright, and Roger Craig will have to duke it out one more time. To the player with the most money at the end of the ordeal goes the spoils - $250,000.

Second place will be awarded $100,000, while third is guaranteed $50,000.

We're 30 minutes away from a big money moment.

Daily Double: $600 You Must Remember Casablanca. Roger goes hunting after two categories and finds it on his first pop with $3200 to Tom's $1000 and Buddy's $600. He wants to bet it all... so we'll let him. For $6400 or nothing... after Nazi Major Strasser has been shot, the command goes out to "round up" this group, the title of another film. "What is usual suspects?" ... FOR THE DOUBLER, $6400!

Hunting all around...

Daily Double #1: $1200 17-Letter Words. Buddy has $4800 to Tom's $11,000 and Roger's $11,600. He doesn't have a lot to lose, so he's going for it. For $9600 or nothing.... This adjective means "thwarting an intended goal", like living on credit while trying to save money.... and he blanks on "counterproductive", dropping him to nothing.

Daily Double #2: $2000 Have You Heard the "News". After a line-judge ruling giving Roger $13,600 to Tom's $14,200, Buddy bets $600 of his $3600 on this: its November 22, 1963 front page headline read: "Storm of Political Controversy Swirls Around Kennedy on Visit". "What is the Dallas Morning News?" correct for $4200!

At the end of Double Jeopardy!...

Roger Tom Buddy

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, Tom, but even if you doubled up, you would not have enough to surpass Roger's $50K pay day from yesterday. This tournament - and the $250,000 - is Roger's to lose.

Final Jeopardy! category: 19th CENTURY POETRY

 

HE WROTE, "HE LOOKED UPON THE GARISH DAY WITH SUCH A WISTFUL EYE; THE MAN HAD KILLED THE THING HE LOVED, & SO HE HAD TO DIE"

 

Correct response: who is Oscar Wilde?

Buddy's response: who is Shelly? WRONG. Wager: $0. Total: $4600.
Tom's response: who is Coleridge? WRONG. Wager: $14,600. Total: $0.
Roger's response: who is Shelley? WRONG. Wager doesn't matter.
