Daily analysis, Friday, January 31

It’s the 100th game of the year, and we’re celebrating with an exciting champion.The Final Wager - January 31, 2014

Another crushing game out of Arthur, but he’s still at risk.

Arthur Chu: 28,000
Tarn Allen: 18,000
Don Gwinn: 7,200

The Final Jeopardy! category: INVENTORS

Here’s what each player should do.

Arthur should wager 8,000.

Tarn needs to get it right to have a shot, so she might as well wager everything, particularly because Arthur has been known to go for the tie. If she doesn’t want to, then she should wager at least 2,000.

Don is out of contention, but he should withhold a dollar or two in case Tarn goes all-in.

Arthur dodges a bullet again, since Don was the only player to nail Final. He now gets a three-week hiatus for the Battle of the Decades’ 1980s Week and the College Championship.
