First - Roger was really moving there for a while. Then he went big and bet it all on the Daily Double, hoping for a huge lead over the two killers he's playing - and lost it all, instead. And then ended with $0 and couldn't play the Final.

Then neither Ken nor Brad knew the Final. (Fair notice: I did not, either.) So tomorrow's game will be way closer than it might have.

BUT ... seriously? "Medical term for swelling caused by fluid"  was the Daily Double ... that Roger couldn't remember? Edema?

Wow. This tournament isn't going exactly as I'd pictured it.

Couldn't believe Roger would be so incautious on that Daily Double (husband could believe Roger would miss something as easy as "edema," either, but I'd chalk it up to choking). Was also surprised that in a 2-day championship a player in negative territory at the end of Day 1 wouldn't be allowed to stay in. Then again, I'm still suffering jet-lag.

He's still in; he just couldn't play Finsl yesterday. He'll be there tonight.

I also think he knew edema; he just couldn't think of it.

Interesting that Ken Jennings played so cautiously yesterday. (BTW, neither of us knew the solution to the Final Jeopardy clue either).

Did you catch Alex tweaking Brad about how "yesterday Ken Jennings made it a true Daily Double" and Brad wryly saying, "Oh, he did, did he?" before doing the same?

They definitely play more cautiously against each other.
