Lots of excitement on this Monday… let’s dig in, shall we?The Final Wager – April 27, 2015

An Antepenultimate Wager in a Millard Fillmore category? I was pumped – but Greg killed my excitement with his bet. I take that on in my video.

His lowball wager notwithstanding – and with a little help from a miss by Tim on the last Double Jeopardy! clue – Greg has a commanding lead.

Greg

Seroka

Ann Marie

Senter

Tim

Giauque

24,200 800 14,600

Tonight’s Final Jeopardy! category is:

WEDDINGS

This one’s straightforward.

Greg Ann Marie Tim
24,200 800 14,600
5,001 795 5,001
19,199 1,595 9,599
min max
5,001 9,599 14,600
24,199

Tim, Tim, Tim. He has a much better wager to preserve second place: 13,000. It puts him ahead of Greg’s pre-Final total if he’s right.

This is the Weak Form of Shore’s Conjecture. I don’t usually analyze this, because no player with a shot at the win should ever play for second.

But humor me here. Let’s say Greg, for some reason, wagers to cover this smaller amount. That’s a wager of 3,401…

Greg Ann Marie Tim
24,200 800 14,600
3,401 13,000
27,601 27,600

…and against Tim’s actually wager, Greg would have won regardless of who got Final correct! (NOTE: NEVER DO THIS AS THE LEADER. YOU WILL BE SORRY.)

Greg Ann Marie Tim
24,200 800 14,600
3,401 5,001
20,799 19,601
