Daily analysis, Monday, April 28

Julia attempts to become the second woman in this month to post a sixth win. Will she do it?The Final Wager - April 28, 2014

She’s in great shape heading into Final – the only way she can lose is if she gets it wrong and Sarah nails it.

Julia Collins: 19,000
Bob Kochersberger: 4,400
Sarah Shody: 10,800

The Final Jeopardy! category: NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING AUTHORS

Basic strategy

Julia should wager 2,600 to guarantee her return on a correct response.

Sarah should wager everything, since she needs to get it right.

Bob should keep some money in the tank in case Sarah gets it wrong. I’d say he should wager at least 801 (in case Sarah goes for the bare, bare minimum of 5,600) and no more than 1,799 (in case Sarah goes for the bare minimum of 8,200).

Mind games

Sorry! No mind games today. This is straightforward.

We’ll see Julia tomorrow for another female crack at #7.
