How far can Andrew Pau go? It’s a new week – let’s start finding out.

Buzzy has a big lead, but Andrew took that penultimate clue out of his hands and kept himself (and Jeanne) alive.

Andrew

Pau (6x)

Jeanne

Roper

Buzzy

Cohen

16,800 14,000 28,000

 

Buzzy could have gone bigger on those Daily Doubles, but in a high-scoring game, it can be hard to pull the trigger.

What actually happened

Andrew Jeanne Buzzy
16,800 14,000 28,000
11,201 13,995 5,601
28,001 27,995 33,601
min max
16,800 14,000 5,601 11,199
11,201 8,401

Just having the lead was enough here on a softball clue. I hate those.

Congrats again to Andrew on a great run, and to all three players here for a really well-played (and enjoyable-to-watch!) game.

    Alex was guilty of my pet peeve, he said, “twenty eight thousand one dollar”, not “dollars”.
