    Kudos to you Don. I said the same thing. In fact there is no Silver at all in its composition. It was made of copper and nickel.

    There is a youtube of Brennan with long hair from last year. He looks SO MUCH younger with long hair. (The link should start the video at the part he is in)

    The susan b Anthony coin was not a silver dollar. It was a dollar coin. His answer was incorrect

    This seemed hard.

    Hard to remember something like this.

    $11,500 as the lowest wild card score at the end of the Tuesday game is pretty high, isn’t it. Kristin underwagered a bit on two DJ! DDs which weren’t that difficult really. Still a close game.

  6. Eric S says:

    To me, a risky zero bet by Kristin. I think she must not have liked the category. I’m not sure what percentage of the lowest wild card qualifiers have 12.8 or more, but I would think more than half.
    I try not to be too critical of the players, but the TOC seems more fair game: those wrong guesses weren’t good. Each involved a POTUS who followed someone from a different party. This is a category (POTUS) which any serious player should well study.

      Kristin threw away two chances to win this match with those DD bets, imo. She looked positively terrified when she bet the $2K.

      • Cece says:

        I agree, VJ. To me, she looked terrified throughout the whole game. I don’t know why though; she’s such a good player.

        And there’s a strange trend going on—Vaughn and Greg seemed stronger and didn’t win. There’s hope for Matt’s non-fans… :) :)

        • VJ says:

          Yeah, right? I guess the second round categories weren’t in their wheelhouses because both Vaughn and Greg kind of fizzled out after kicking butt in their first rounds. Somehow I don’t see that happening to Matt, but we’ll see. If I’m remembering right, he’s weak in pop culture and sports.

    I was hoping Kristin Sausville will win.

    Interesting factoid: James Monroe died on July 4th as did Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. The latter two died the same year hours apart though. Weird!

    Learned that info in elementary school and never forgot. Some things always stay with you decades later.

    Congrats vj. You predicted someone would go for FDR and you were correct. Nice call.

    • VJ says:

      Thanks Jacob. Wow, I could not believe Kristin did not get Victoria Woodhull even when spotted her first name.

      I knew Greg didn’t have FJ by his facial expression when Alex said they went way back

    • JEOPARDY says:

      was one of those not really difficult fj thats a lil hard to remember or not too significant to know.

    Now, that is what I call a high-scoring list for wild-cards. Imagine if Kristin doesn’t even get in the semis. That would just be absurd.
