Sala

Levin

Sharren

Lee Gibbs

12,800 10,800 10,400

 

In the extended video, I discuss Sala’s late Daily Double wager in CAPITAL RIVERS. (I would have gone for broke, but her small wager turned out for the best.)

Combined analysis

What actually happened

Seth Sala Sharren
12,800 10,800 10,400
10,000 7,000 10,000
22,800 3,800 400
min max min max min max
8,801 10,001* 4,801 5,599
6,001 6,799 6,399
1,999

Sharren wagered too much. Sala wagered either too much or too little, depending on your point of view. Seth kinda sorta wagered too much, but once again, it pays off for him.
