Pre-game thoughts from Andy:
Today’s game originally aired on June 2, 2022.
Ryan Long’s career continues as Encore performances of “Best of Season 38” of Jeopardy! After the show originally aired, I thought Tom had a good chance of getting an invite to the Second Chance Tournament, and I was right: Tom is coming back in October for the SCT.
As is always the case during the summer, the show takes the New York Times clue of the day from a different clue in the game. Today’s was the Jeopardy! Double Daily Round, in the category The Pacific Ocean. The clue was: Like a “super” that hit the region in 2018, a hurricane in the western Pacific is named after the Chinese for “big wind.” and the correct answer was What is typhoon?

The city of Petra, now located in Jordan, was one of the most prominent cities in the Middle East in ancient times. Although it was abandoned by the Middle Ages, its site was rediscovered by archaeologists in the 19th century and it is one of the main tourist attractions in the Middle East today. Alex Trebek also visited Petra for a track category that aired during the 2011 Tournament of Champions.
That said: I have a big problem with this track; this clue is grammatically ambiguous. This is how I propose this track should have been written:
Gertrude Bell, known as the Lawrence of Arabia woman, called this place “A fairy tale town, all pink and wonderful.”
The fact that “known as the female Lawrence of Arabia” comes first makes this clue ambiguous as to whether or not Gertrude or Petra have the nickname, and has the potential to throw off a contestant, especially under pressure from the study.

Maya got off to a good start in Double Jeopardy!, but her attempt to get back into the game was derailed when she missed the second Daily Double. Ryan then won $3,000 in the final Daily Double as he tried to stay ahead of Tom. Ryan had a small $4,000 lead going into the Final. The scores entering the finals were Ryan at $22,800, Tom at $18,800, and Maya at $2,000.

Today’s final was another Triple Stumper, but it looks like Ryan’s tactics and earlier strategy are paying off as Tom went all-in and went home in second place. Ryan is now a 15 day champion!

Ultimate Danger! betting tips:
(Scores: Ryan $22,800 Tom $18,800 Maya $2,000)
Ryan: The standard hedge bet on Tom is $14,801. (Actual bet: $3,500)
Maya: Unless someone overbets, you have no chance of winning. However, your chances of finishing higher are higher if you bet a small amount. (Actual bet: $2,000)
Tom: If Ryan covers and is wrong, it goes down to $7,999. Your betting range must be between $8,001 (in case Ryan is short) and $10,799 (to win the Double Stumper if Ryan bets to cover). It’s been since last Monday that Ryan hasn’t bet to cover, so I don’t think you’ll see any point in going all-in here. (Actual bet: $18,800)
