Here’s hoping I don’t get a cease-and-desist order for tonight’s video.The Final Wager – October 7, 2014

No monkey business tonight. Terri’s got this one locked up thanks to a nice run at the end of the DJ! round.

Terri Pous: 11,200
Brendan McParland: 4,200
Carol McGhee: 3,600

The Final Jeopardy! category: FAUXBITUARIES

SPOILER ALERT on that Final clue!

Basic strategy – first vs. second

Terri has it locked up, and can wager up to 2,800.

Basic strategy – second vs. third

Brendan should wager 3,000 to cover Carol.

Carol should cap her wager at 2,399…

Basic strategy – Rule #3

…and should wager at least 1,201 to cover an “unsafe” wager out of Brendan.

What actually happened

Both of our challengers go too big, and it costs Brendan $1,000. Carol’s not complaining.

I liked Terri’s play today. She’s back tomorrow for Round Three!
