  1. I face palmed because of Eduardo’s wager. You’ll notice that had Susannah wagered everything correctly, she would have had $19,200, and had Nan missed, Eduardo, because he wagered to cover a zero wager by Nan, instead of an all in wager by Susannah, would have given Susannah the victory, and the 2nd spot in the finals.
    Eduardo, don’t forget to carry the 1.

    • William:

      You’ve contradicted yourself. You said “because he wagered to cover a zero wager by Nan”, and then “don’t forget to carry the one”.

      It’s unfair for you to acknowledge his strategy but then accuse him of making a math error in the next sentence.

      It’s either one or the other, not both.

  2. Sorry, Andy. My brain got ahead of me, and I did not accuse Eduardo of making a math error like that, my conscience did, and it needs to stop.
