Steve Belding is looking to break our drought of four-time champions. Will he do it?

The Final Wager – January 8, 2016

When Steve found that Daily Double in “AMERICAN” ORGANIZATIONS, I was hoping he would make it True. It’s the ideal category for a big wager: there are an extremely limited number of possible answers, and you’re probably familiar with all of them.

Lucky for him, he didn’t – but he still needs help heading into Final.

Steve

Belding

Ava

Hadaway

Adam

Hoskins

9,400 9,000 14,600

If you multiply Steve’s score by 1.5, you get 14,100, less than Adam’s pre-Final total. That means he has to get it right to have a shot to win. Same for Ava. All-in, regardless of category!

What actually happened

Steve Ava Adam
9,400 9,000 14,600
8,601 9,000 4,201
18,001 18,000 18,801
min max
9,400 9,000 4,201 5,199

We now stand at 52 regular games since Matt Jackson lost; he’s the last player to win more than three. I’ll soon have to update my Streaks of Futility record board.

Have a great weekend!
