Chris found the Jeopardy! round Daily Double in “Quizine” under the $800 clue, the first one chosen in the category. There were only 4 clues left in the same category after it. He was in third place with $1,600, $4,200 less than David’s lead. He made it a true Daily Double and she was RIGHT.

Round 2 Categories: Wide World of Ports – Vice Presidents – Reportage – Celebrity Memoirs – Art & Artists – The 3 I’s Have It
Bill found the first Daily Double in “Vice Presidents” under the $1,200 clue on the 8th pick of the round. He had $6,800 when he found it but was docked $2,400 for a mispronunciation in one of the “Port” clues. That left him $4,400. Chris and David were tied at $7,000. Bill bet $3,000 and he was RIGHT.

TWO of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.
Here’s a link to Othello’s speech on eNotes in which he bids farewell to “Pride, pomp and circumstance of glorious war,” among other things. A search of the same phrase on youtube, however, is going to yield more instances of the Elgar march than the play.
Bill wrote down “The Long March” and lost his $2,000 bet. He was left with $10,200.
Chris got it right. He bet it all and finished with $26,800.
David also got it right. He bet $10,000 and won the game with $27,000. Congrats to David on a well-played game, but we also have to say that Chris and Bill were great opponents. It was a great game!
This last triple stumper was in “Art & Artists” and worth $2,000: “He likened crawling Christina Olson, the subject of his famed 1948 painting, to a crab on a New England shore.”
This was the $1,200 clue that Bill got a reversal on in “Wide World of Ports”: “France’s second-busiest seaport, it was founded under a longer name meaning “haven of grace.” He said “Le Harve,” rather than “Le Havre.” (Here’s looking at you, Brett Favre)
