    I noticed Andrew was really getting conservative with his wagers. That almost cost him the 5x title!
    I hope he continues for several more games

    “Oh Happy Day….” wait…it’s not a happy day… But we finally have a fiver! Way to go, Andrew!

    Beth could have won on the TS with a wager of $1800 or less, so Andrew wins in part because of the inoptimal wagering by Beth

      Right, of course, but taking a closer look: for her to win, the leader would have to miss. So, if the leader misses, doesn’t that make it more likely that the third person might miss? I believe so.
      At the very least, this is another clear example of how the person in second shouldn’t always bet big.

    Congrats to andrew on him being a 5x champion. Its been months since the 2015 tornament of champions and now we got a miracle. But alex was pretty funny with the exclamation he made. How did they miss Pittsburg?

  5. EricS says:

    I’m torn between whether I’m happier to see Abbottsford or Washington.

      I think they both are funny.

      Alex Trebek acted like they should have been able to correlate 18th century British prime ministers, cities and NFL as easily as Beth knew that Pillsbury Bake-Off answer. He seemed almost indignant after seeing Abbotsford.

      “No! The City of Champions, Pittsburgh! For William Pitt the Elder!”

      Andrew said he thought it was in Canada for some reason and Trebek exclaimed “No! NFL! National Football League…”

      • jacob ska says:

        @vj, I thought that comment by Alex was funny. In other words we have NHL in Canada not NFL.

    Sadly, Jeopardy! was pre-empted in Minneapolis today. Lots of Purple Rain.

    Finally a 5x champion! We really had a drought for a long time.

    Congrats 5 times over Andrew.
