The former.

John Campbell: 17,200
Chris Hoeh: 4,200

The Final Jeopardy! category: LITERATURE

This will see some mind games between Jim and Chris.

Basic strategy – first vs. second

John has it locked up, and can wager up to 5,200.

Basic strategy – second vs. third

Jim should wager 2,400 to cover Chris.

Chris should wager at most 600 – make that 599 since he has to win outright.

Mind games – second vs. third

If he thinks Chris will go small, Jim could cap his wager at 1,200.

Chris should wager at least 3,001 if he’s afraid of this.

    I’m can’t wait to see Friday’s episode go up. I think it offered the most compelling set of “Mind Game” wagers so far this season – especially with such an offbeat FJ category.

      My bad. It is up already. For some reason the calendar link is broken though.

What do you think?
