Quick Recap – September 18, 2015


Today’s contestants:

Tina Uihlein, a table games dealer from Ballwin, MO
Eric Matheis, a lecturer from New York, NY
Natalie Lips, an office assistant from Lincoln, NE (1-day champ: $13,200)

There was an (ante)penultimate wager on the final Daily Double. With a $1200 clue on the board, Natalie chose to bet just $2,000 in a 20700-10400-6600 situation (I probably would have bet $2,600.)

Scores going into Final Jeopardy!:
Natalie 22700
Eric 10400
Tina 6600

Final Jeopardy! category: ALPHABETS

Final Jeopardy! clue: It’s the only letter of the Greek alphabet whose English spelling could also be identified as a number in Roman numerals

Tina 6600 + 2000 = 8600
Eric 10400 + 2800 = 13200
Natalie 22700 + 500 = 23200 (2-day champ, $36,400)
