Tuesday’s semifinal pits Tuesday’s winner, Arthur Chu, against two wild cards: Mark Japinga (who took the lead into Final on Friday) and Rebecca Rider (who trailed Ben Ingram on Monday by a significant margin).

Arthur had the second-highest Coryat score in the quarterfinals – the score one would have if wagering is disregarded – trailing Ben Ingram by just 200. He had, by far, the highest number of correct answers, 25; Mark was in second place, with 21.

Here are the wagering histories for Arthur, Mark, and Rebecca.
