Daily analysis, Tuesday, April 29

Our champ looks to tie Stephanie Jass for the most regular-play wins by a female. Will she do it?The Final Wager - April 29, 2014

Yes! Julia looked strong yet again today. We’ll see if she can claim the mantle all for herself on Wednesday’s broadcast (barring a Cliff Clavin).

Julia Collins: 25,100
Mary Twellman: 10,000
Nick Lemek: 6,200

The Final Jeopardy! category: U.S. HISTORY

Basic strategy

Julia can wager up to 5,100.

Mary should wager 2,400.

Nick needs to get it right to catch a rational wager by Mary, so he might as well go for broke.

Mind games

For the second night in a row, no mind games to be had.

MARY! What are you doing?! You’re lucky. I guess the lesson here is: when trailing in a game like this, hold back more than a few dollars.
