Summer seems to be in full swing here in New York… we’ll have to see if our players tonight are similarly heating up.

Harris made a nice run on those last two clues to get into contention heading into Final.

Harris

Stutman (1x)

Susan

Sexton

Tony

Orcutt

9,200 12,800 21,000

Tonight’s Final Jeopardy! category is irrelevant – Harris and Susan should both be going all in.

7,500 4,601 4,601

min max
7,201* 8,201* 4,601 8,199
2,599
5,601

Susan gets the pink because Tony could have waltzed away the winner with a zero wager here – there’s no reason to give him that opportunity.

In any case, Harris has now won 2 games and $39,700.

    Susan’s wager was also bad because it didn’t cover a double-up by Harris (5,601 as you showed was the minimum, and she bet a thousand less).

    This was my episode, good analysis on it. Still kicking myself I didn’t go bigger on that $800 DD. Harris was clutch on the last two questions and beat me on the buzzer for the Elie Wiesel clue. I was also a little perplexed with Susan’s wager. Tough way to lose, but had a blast overall!
