J! Quickcap: 10/17/2022 — Second Chance Tournament Semifinals 1 Game 1

Jeopardy! logo

There will be two separate Second Chance Tournaments for each week w/ nine participants each (eighteen total) who have played after the last Tournament of Champions in May 2021. Each tournament will start directly on the semifinals round w/ the winner of each going into the finals. The winner of each tournament will transfer to the upcoming Tournament of Champions. The consolation prizes (at least in the semifinals games) will reflect those of regular-play games ($2K for second place and $1K for third place) and there are no wild cards since we’re going straight to the semifinals in the beginning of each tournament.

One thought on “J! Quickcap: 10/17/2022 — Second Chance Tournament Semifinals 1 Game 1

  1. I (for Bobby) will have to agree with you, Skipps, on that 50/50 Split rating.

    Although we did not do well on our DDs, day one of our tourney did yield an easy F! about Nixon’s favorite dog. Surprisingly, one got it wrong.

    Bobby’s rating – 50/50 Split

    WHEEL coming up next will decide whether or not we have a majority winning Monday.
