When Tuesday’s episode aired, I was at trivia – where two teams gave themselves the same relevant name.The Final Wager – February 17, 2015

For those of you who haven’t seen the SNL 40 Celebrity Jeopardy!, be sure to watch it. The name in question was the second Connery mis-read.*

As for the game, Stephanie’s got this one – well, she would have, had Alex not blown the Selena clue.

Andy

Axel

Stephanie

Engel

Eamon

Doyle

4,600 22,200 11,600

Tonight’s Final Jeopardy! category is:

CALIFORNIA CITIES

I’m going to try a new format for tonight’s analysis. Let me know what you think.

First-order calculations

Second doubles up

If Eamon doubles his score, he’ll have 23,200.

To cover this all-in wager, Stephanie will need to wager 1,000.

Andy Stephanie Eamon
4,600 22,200 11,600
1,000 11,600
23,200 23,200

An incorrect response with that wager will leave Stephanie with 21,200.

To get above her total, Eamon must wager at least 11,600.

Andy Stephanie Eamon
4,600 22,200 11,600
1,000 9,600
21,200 21,200

Against that minimum 9,600 wager from Eamon, Andy should cap his wager at 2,600. (He’ll definitely want to withhold the dollar, as a tie for second goes to whoever led before Final.)

Andy Stephanie Eamon
4,600 22,200 11,600
2,600 9,600
2,000 2,000

    Keith, notice if Eamon had answered correctly and Stephanie had wagered zero, we would have had a tie-breaker.

What do you think?
