Our long national nightmare is almost over…

Matthew was in a tricky spot on that late Daily Double. Had David nabbed that last 2,000 clue on the board, he would have had exactly half Matthew’s score before the Daily Double, so the DD wager was really moot (so long as it wasn’t more than 3,999).

Well, that wraps things up; congrats to Matthew, who made a really strong comeback to lock things up. We’ve got 5xer Buzzy Cohen returning on Monday. Have a great weekend!
