Correct response: Who is Herbert Hoover?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Herbert Hoover gave the address on February 12, 1931, for Lincoln’s birthday. Hanover College has the text the address.
In it, Hoover said:
Victory over this depression and over our other difficulties will be won by the resolution of our people to fight their own battles in their own communities, by stimulating their ingenuity to solve their own problems, by taking new courage to be masters of their own destiny in the struggle of life. This is not the easy way, but it is the American way. And it was Lincoln’s way.
It did not work, to say the least. The American people did not like Hoover’s way of dealing with the Depression and Franklin D. Roosevelt took the Presidency from Hoover in the election of 1932.

Tournament of Champions projections:
With a projected 148 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 500,000 simulations, our model shows:
An average of 4.7218 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.7374).
An average of 8.3084 4+-time champions (standard deviation 2.0903).
An early cutoff took place 31.607% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).
Anneke Garcia qualified 86.165% of the time.
Dave Leffler qualified 32.273% of the time.
Jonathan Dinerstein qualified 10.985% of the time.
Alex Schmidt qualified 2.831% of the time.
Jackie Fuchs qualified 0.248% of the time.
Mary Ann Borer qualified 0.000% of the time.
- Anneke’s winning score of $39,995 is the highest since Donna Brown won $45,600 on December 22, 2017.
- The combined Coryat of $48,200 is the highest since April 25, 2016 (Buzzy Cohen’s first game, where he defeated Andrew Pau.)
- This game had the lowest amount of Lach Trash ($1,200) since Margaret Miles’ first game on April 14, 2016. (There was just $600 in that game.)
- The Double Jeopardy! round was taken top-to-bottom, left-to-right, in order. This is an incredibly rare occurrence. The last time that happened was December 19, 2016 (Cindy Stowell’s 5th game), in the Jeopardy! round.
- She seemed hesitant and quasi-guessing, but props to Kathleen for ringing in and coming up with Russ Finegold on the HOME FROM THE HILL $2000 clue to put her back into the lead going into Final. So many players forget the situation there and are afraid to ring in.
- There was a slightly different musical cue at the point before Johnny read the promotional considerations, as Alex was walking over to the contestant lecterns. I’m not sure what prompted this change (on a Tuesday of all days) and I’m rather confused by it all.
