Tonight: a sneak preview of next week’s… attire!The Final Wager – November 5, 2014

Looks like the carousel of champions might be spinning once more.

Caitlin Malcuit: 1,400
Aric Wiest: 9,900
Hillary Huttenhower: 16,200

The Final Jeopardy! category: ARTISTS

Pretty straightforward.

Basic strategy – first vs. second

Hillary should wager 3,600 to cover Aric.

Aric needs to get it right, so he might as well wager everything, but at least 2,700 (or 6,300 to cover a zero wager by Hillary).

Caitlin is out of contention for the victory.

That’s about all, folks!

What actually happened

Special notice: I’m going to direct your attention to tonight’s webcast on The Jeopardy! Fan, because recent three-time champ Ryan Alley shared a rumor that ties will soon be on the way out. (Skip to 3:30 – hat tip to Ben Ingram.)

Not sure how they’ll do that or whether it’s even true, but we’ll see…

    Why shouldn’t Caitlin cap at 1399 to not fall below Aric if he misses with a big wager.
