Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

The First Geneva Convention from 1864 was formed after Henri Dunant visited wounded soldiers after the 1859 Battle of Solferino and he was shocked by the lack of medical aid available to those wounded on the battlefield. It led to the founding of the Red Cross and the Geneva Convention, an international treaty covering battlefield sick and wounded. Dunant was co-awarded the first Nobel Peace Prize for these accomplishments.

Article 7 of the 1864 Geneva Convention reads:

A distinctive and uniform flag shall be adopted for hospitals, ambulances and evacuation parties. It should in all circumstances be accompanied by the national flag. An armlet may also be worn by personnel enjoying neutrality but its issue shall be left to the military authorities. Both flag and armlet shall bear a red cross on a white ground.

    6: 0.34%
    Avg. streak: 1.470 games.
    Avg. Total Winnings (including possible ToC): $33,301

    ToC projection update:
    With a projected 86 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 250,000 simulations, our model shows:
    An average of 3.1553 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.3765).
    An average of 4.8781 4+-time champions (standard deviation 1.6821).

    An early cutoff took place 16.051% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).

    Tim Kutz qualified 58.850% of the time.
    Todd Giese qualified 19.117% of the time.
    Rob Liguori qualified 3.952% of the time.
    Fred Vaughn qualified 0.760% of the time.

    (Note: Due to the possibility of a WGA strike, I feel that it is more accurate for ToC projections to add 20 games to the end of the previous projected qualifying period.)

    Miscellany:

    • This is the 6th consecutive game during which a player has found 2 or more Daily Doubles and lost. The last time this happened: March 17-24, 2016. A streak of 9 occurred between January 8-23, 2008.

    olive branch and dove????????? never knew that was an ORGANIZATION….. I sure thought this time it would be a 3/3.

    • John, I think you misread the clue. The clue didn’t ask for an org, it asked for a symbol. And Jane’s response, while not correct, wasn’t as incorrect as you painted it as and I can see why others may call this hateful.

  3. John blahuta don’t be hateful
