2013 Teachers Tournament

The FInal Wager cover 20131120

Mary Beth has a huge score, but she’ll still probably need to get Final right to win.

Mary Beth Hammerstrom: 21,000
Maryanne Lewell: 7,800
Eli Barrieau: 14,800

Mary Beth and Eli have the potential to play some chess, but the draw to do so is weak.

Mary Beth should wager 8,601 to cover Eli. Technically, she could play mind games with him and wager smaller, but why not take the game into your own hands?

Eli has a decision. Have any sort of confidence in the category? Wager everything. Otherwise, if you think Mary Beth will wager to lock you out, go for between 801 and 2,400.

Maryanne doesn’t even need to think. All-in, baby!

This might have been the easiest Final Jeopardy! of the season, especially after the ridiculous first two Finals in the semis. Novel + Muhammad + bad = something that got an Islamic writer in trouble? Cha-ching!
