Final Jeopardy! wagering analysis:
Tuesday, May 10, 2016 (Teachers SF #2)

2016 Teachers Tournament
QF1 QF2 QF3 QF4 QF5 SF1 SF2 SF3 F1 F2

It’s night two of this year’s Teacher Tournament semifinals – who will return on Thursday?

I thought the players last night were scared of the Daily Doubles. Tonight they left them both until the final three clues!

Jill found one right before the end-of-round bell sounded, and she put herself in a “crush” position against Chris, meaning she can only lose if she misses FJ and Chris gets it.

Chris

Tempro

Jill

Gilbert

Bill

Knuth

9,900 15,400 2,400

I had a few qualms with the clues in this game, one of which was the neg against Jill for “scholarly” when the judges wanted “professorial” – that should have been counted as correct. You can’t blame the players for the writers’ poor work.

Tonight’s Final Jeopardy! category is:

What actually happened

Chris Jill Bill
9,900 15,400 2,400
9,900 4,401 2,400
19,800 19,801 4,800
9,900 4,401

Sad that another game had to come down to a Teen-caliber Final, but that’s good news for the player in the lead, particularly when she earned that position. Congrats, Jill! Who will join her and Kaberi on Thursday and Friday for our two-day total-point affair?
