    Almost every quarterfinal game (since the 2014 Teen Tournament), the fifth quarterfinal game resulted with the wild card finishing with the highest non-winning score among all of the other wild-cards. They were Sydney Mokel (2014 Teen Tournament), Sandie Baker (2014 Tournament of Champions), Kate La Riviere-Gagner (2015 Teachers Tournament), EXCEPT FOR 2014 KIDS WEEK that is Emma Miller (who had the highest non-winning score that week), Ziad Ali (2016 College Championship), Kaberi Chakrabarty (2016 Teachers Tournament) and NOW, Sharath Narayan, who won the 2016 Teen Tournament. So almost all of the two-week tournaments (EXCEPT for the 2015 Tournament of Champions) have the fifth quarterfinal game resulted with the wild card finishing with the highest non-winning score among all of the other wild-cards.

    Wednesday is Sharath, Lucia and Lily, Thursday is Connor, Emily and Alec and Friday is Michael, Antonio and Apurva.

    Tough break there for Jasmine. Have to say I found the MTV category in this match amusing because I remember when parents would gripe that all the teens do is watch MTV. Not so much these days, I guess.

    12 more clues from the match are up now, including the Quarterback category LINK

      Good, fast-paced game—great performances. Poor Jasmine, I was afraid she was going to dislocate her wrist from shaking that buzzer in the first round.

      Now I reaaaly feel bad for Michael Kwan–––his misspelling did cost him a WC after all.

    The name that jumped out at me immediately from FF comes from Erbium, Iodine, and Carbon on the Periodic Table. What a way to go buddy.

    This teen tournament has lived up to its expectations so far. Very smart young people.

    So Apurva’s been sitting on the edge of her seat since Wednesday of last week when it felt like that $10,800 would be a pretty sure bet, and then, the lava just started creeping up the aisle. In other words, it looked like that with $10,800, we would, for sure, see Apurva in the semi-finals later this week, and then, other people just came along and beat her. Not a great position for her to be in. Another great position not to be in is the position that Jack Bekos is in right now. He is the 5th wild-card with $5,600, and that means that he gets to be the alternate, which is never any fun.
