We’ve got yet another three-day champ coming into Friday’s game. Will Laurie win a fourth?

She’s trailing once again, yet is in a decent position to win.

Laurie

MacDougall (3x)

Harris

Stutman

Peyton

Brown

11,400 14,600 800

Tonight’s Final Jeopardy! category is:

ALLITERATIVE AMERICANS

Tough luck for Peyton on that Daily Double; that took the wind out of his sails.

Combined wagers

Laurie
Harris
Peyton
11,400 14,600 800
FIRST-ORDER SECOND-ORDER COVER ZERO
min max min max min max
3,200 5,000 8,200 13,000
1,800 3,200
6,400*

There is the potential for some mind games here, but I expect Laurie will go big again.

What actually happened

Laurie Harris Peyton
11,400 14,600 800
4,900 8,400 799
6,500 23,000 1
min max min max
3,201 4,999 8,201 12,999
1,801 3,199
6,401*

Yet she didn’t! And she basically forced Harris to go big, which could have paid off for her with a different clue. Instead, he takes home a nice chunk of change.

Congrats to Laurie on a solid run; maybe we’ll see her in the ToC.
