Daily analysis, November 21 – Teachers Tournament Finals, Day One

2013 Teachers Tournament
Quarterfinals Semifinals Finals
1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 1 2

Just the facts, sir: no analysis today, since I don’t generally critique Daily Double wagers, and that’s all these are.

The Final Wager November 21 2013

Good game to kick off our finals, although I don’t get why Mary Beth was so passive with those first two Daily Doubles after her success earlier in each category.

Mary Beth Hammerstrom: 16,000
Becky Giardina: 5,000
John Pearson: 8,600

Final Jeopardy wagering November 21 2013

Here’s what each player needs to do to be in the lead heading into Final Jeopardy! in Game Two:

Becky needs to lead John by more than 7,600, and lead Mary Beth by more than 5,500

Mary Beth must lead John by more than 2,100, and if she’s not beating Becky, trail her by less than 5,500

John can be in the lead – or trail Becky by less than 7,600 and Mary Beth by less than 2,100

The Final Jeopardy! clue for November 21, 2013:

U.S. PRESIDENTS
THE SECOND MAN TO BECOME PRESIDENT WHO WAS NEVER ELECTED TO THE JOB, HE TWICE RAN FOR THE POSITION UNSUCCESSFULLY

Correct response: Who was Millard Fillmore?
