$9600 for me and did not get the South Africa DD. The frustrating one was Greg as I had Thomas while blanked on the surname.

That Harvard category was a pain and a half even with the closed-captions to help as there was no easy way to decide where to insert those media links.

If you do this tomorrow I can hope the list is shorter and I'm certain it would be shorter for the Wednesday game as no way that much trash is available.

$12,200, excepting the Daily Double. Based on my confidence in geography, I probably would have bet more, but I’m also not at the podium, so who knows? Missed the Rizzoli and Isles and car questions. Models of cars have long been a Jeopardy standard I’ve not quite mastered yet.

I guessed that you wouldn't get Colin Jost. (I didn't get him from the picture, but was clued in by the Weekend Update part.)

Nixon, Jost, Hamburger Hill, Wolfe, Becquerel, von Braun for $8,400 (provided I didn't neg and the DD wasn't mine).

$10200 here, assuming I'm playing aggressively from an underdog position and taking chances where I might ordinarily clam. Since I got FJ and frontrunner Anneke missed it, this means I would have hypothetically won from the fourth podium without ever winning a buzzer race. If you got over $9000 (not including the DD) and got FJ right, you can say the same. I have to think that James Holzhauer wouldn't have picked up LESS trash in this game. So this doesn't bode well for any of these three if they face him. They're already GIVING him enough to win, not even considering how much he's going to TAKE.

No chance on that DD. That was a rough bounce for Kyle. But he bounced back and is sitting fairly pretty. Other than the looming Holz-monster, that is.

I'll try to do this for any game that seems to warrant it. This game was extraordinary, I think. By the end of the SJ round I already knew I was going to make this poll. There was already $5600 left on the table. I didn't know that precise number, of course. (I'm no savant.) But I could sense something unusual was happening.

I agree that Wednesday's game is not going to provide this kind of opportunity.

Many thanks, by the way, to the archivist (you?) who got this game logged in so quickly. That made the poll creation much easier. Ordinarily I put these polls up before the archive has the text. So I pull the CC from the game, search for the word "BEEP", and use the time signature to locate the right place in the recording so I can type out the text of the clue. (CC never includes the text of a clue unless it's a video clue and the text isn't already on the screen.) This time I just had to search for "triple stumper" in the game responses and copy/paste the corresponding text.

$10,200.

Should have had cape colony as well, but couldn't pull it in time. Awkward question.

$5,800 if I cheat - I'm pretty sure I said "beh-quell" (the last syllable being pronounced like the synonym of "to surpress"), but knew the gist of that darn French word that I'd never heard pronounced. If I'd wagered all-in on FJ!, a cool $11,600 if I'm a turtle on the buzzer. Not nearly enough to win, but a respectable showing for me.
