I have a feeling Choyon Manjrekar would have done well with this game.The Final Wager – June 25, 2015

Between a category called HYMN BOOK (which went completely untouched – c’mon, guys!) and this Final, Thursday’s game was tailor-made for our good musical-loving friend.

With a grand total of seven clues untouched in this game, it’s no surprise the scores are so low. But a win is a win, and Matt will take down his third.

Poor wagering from our challengers; Desta takes the extra $1,000 consolation prize by virtue of having the lead heading into Final.

In any event, Matt has now won 3 games and $46,700 – which puts him on the leaderboard, but nowhere near TOC contention.

    It’s funny how Ed and Desta both had one good option that you didn’t mention, yet neither made a wager which was even slightly defensible.

    Desta has an unsafe wager with 199-1,000, which she should be making a lot of the time in the NE. Ed has 3,200, which he needs to threaten to do occasionally, as Desta crushes his 1001-1199 with 199-1,000 if Ed is too predictable.

What do you think?
