Daily analysis, Monday, January 20

Our returning champion had the weekend to brush up on wagering tactics. How will Monday go?The Final Wager - January 20, 2014

If there were any doubts Sarah could play, they disappeared tonight – her past wagering notwithstanding.

Sarah McNitt: 22,200
Blake Perkins: 5,000
Jon McGuire: 10,000

The Final Jeopardy! category: GOVERNMENT SITES

This one’s pretty straightforward.

Sarah can wager up to 2,200.

Jon should stand pat – if Blake doubles up, they’ll tie, and Jon will take the $2,000 second-place prize because he had the higher score heading into Final.

Blake might as well wager everything in case Jon wagers something.

And he did. For shame! You’re lucky, Jon.

The Final Jeopardy! clue for January 20, 2014 (GOVERNMENT SITES):

BEGUN AS PART OF A 1930s PROJECT TO RECLAIM MARYLAND MOUNTAIN LAND, IT’S OFFICIALLY “NAVAL SUPPORT FACILITY THURMONT”

Correct response: What is Camp David?

  1. I think it’s worth mentioning that while the returning champ had the weekend to brush up on wagering tactics, she didn’t know yet that there was anything wrong with her wagering tactics, and therefore did not. 😀

    Monday’s game reflects my overall Jeopardy! wagering strategy: “Try to get a lock so that you don’t have to worry about wagering the wrong thing.” The difference is that this time, it worked!

      Welcome, Sarah! You mean you didn’t read all of the angry comments over the weekend, since Jeopardy! is taped live? 😉

      The “go for the lock” strategy is great – hope you racked up a few more!

What do you think?
