Roy Hollis, a real estate agent from Huron Township, MI

Bryan Barton, a para-educator and middle school basketball coach from Hutchinson, KS (1-day total: $5,000)
bryan_barton_3_ad_03-09-16_sn_1077

Brice was a 1-day Jeopardy champ about a decade ago!

This felt like one of the most evenly-matched games of the entire season; all three players played very well and had a very good shot! Unfortunately for Brice, while he had 17 correct today, he dropped a combined $6,500 on both Daily Doubles.

Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Roy 11,750 (13 right, 0 wrong)
Bryan 10,500 (14 right, 1 wrong)
Brice 7,750 (17 right, 4 wrong)

Final Jeopardy! category: THE WINTER OLYMPICS

Final Jeopardy! clue: Of the countries that have hosted the Winter Games, this one in Europe is the only one that no longer exists on the map

What is Yugoslavia? (Brice and Bryan said East Germany; Roy crossed out Yugoslavia and went for Czechoslovakia)

Bryce 7750 – 7750 = 0
Bryan 10500 – 9500 = 1000
Roy 11750 – 9251 = 2499 (1-day total: $5,000)

This is one of those moments where I’ll point to many times and say “I think this is why Final Jeopardy betting strategy is at least worth a cursory look”.
