I got dressed up tonight just for you! (Well, partially, anyway.)

I went to see Eclipsed on Friday evening – it’s up for 6 Tony Awards, including Best Play. It was brilliant and haunting. (It’s also the first Broadway play in which everyone on the cast and production crew is a black female.)

Kelly

Bayles (2x)

Lincoln

Hamilton

Jeremy

Eaton

17,200 7,000 10,900

Kelly will have to put something on the line with this category:

BUSINESS

This situation is simple, so I won’t belabor it for too long.

Combined wagers

Kelly
Lincoln
Jeremy
17,200 7,000 10,900
FIRST-ORDER SECOND-ORDER COVER ZERO
min max min max min max
4,600 6,300 5,600* 9,500*
3,200 6,300*
3,100*

Both Lincoln and Jeremy need to respond correctly to have a shot, so all-in is the proper play.

What actually happened

Kelly Lincoln Jeremy
17,200 7,000 10,900
8,000 5,601 7,100
25,200 12,601 3,800
min max
4,601 6,299 7,000 10,900
3,199

That puts Kelly on the ToC leaderboard with 3 wins and $62,700… and eliminating our first 3xer from contention. See you Monday!
