I was a day behind. Congrats to Amy. She was the clear co-favorite (w/ Matt) coming into this tournament, but that was a really terrific set of games between Amy, Andrew, and Sam. I am disappointed that Andrew's last name only response of Johnson was ruled incorrect instead of could you be more specific. I don't know if he would have known the first name, but it more than made up the difference between he and Amy going into Final Jeopardy and would have meant a different winner if he had.

Ken actually never competed in a regular ToC. He instead played in the Ultimate Tournament of Champions, where he was seeded right into the Finals. That was also the first time he was beaten by Rutter, who would do that in every tournament afterwards until the GOAT.

It was just a matter of using the next even number. I don't see any situation where that extra 199 makes a difference. If she got it wrong and the others got it right, no matter what she would lose. If everyone got it wrong, she loses because Andrew only needs to bet enough to cover Amy's total going into FJ.

Actually, Andrew's wager would have been enough to cover Amy's pre-FJ total AND Sam correct with an all-in wager. So he actually bet 1,000 more than he needed to (he needed 1,801, he wagered 2,801). While that extra 1,000 wouldn't make a difference, that one is more curious since it's not an even number.
