When I make this face, you know something is amiss.The Final Wager – September 25, 2014

Bummer: a two-player game. But that means I just get to write really large!

Catherine Hardee: 23,200
Dolly Moehrle: 0
Joann Taylor: 15,600

The Final Jeopardy! category: 20th CENTURY LEADERS

Two-player situations are always straightforward.

Basic strategy – first vs. second

Catherine should wager 8,000 to cover Joann.

Joann can wager up to 400 to stay above Catherine if they’re both wrong. But she can’t cover a zero wager, so…

Mind games – first vs. second

Catherine might consider a smaller wager: up to 7,200.

If she’s scared of this possibility, Joann should wager everything.

What actually happened

Ugh. Fie on both of these wagers!

Catherine: If you’re not going to go for the lockout, don’t fall below a zero wager by the trailer!

Joann: It’s not like you’ll finish in third place – if you’re going to go big, go big!
