Halftime (as soon as the second half of the board disappears), we see Matthew owning an $800 lead over Ali $3,800-$3K, followed by Angela w/ $1,400. W/ only U.S. Military Medals & less than a min. left in the J! Rd., Matthew searches for the one DD...& succeeds on his 2nd pick of the $800 one w/ $7,200; he's tripled Ali. This is to hit $10K:

To be eligible for this medal, you must have been held captive after 4/5/17.

"What is the..Prisoner of War medal?"...is correct & that does it for this board w/ the $400, $800 & $1K clues being put back into the vault.

I Have a Theory & Angela has a DD on its $1600 clue having $3,800, $200 ahead of Ali for 2nd; Matthew's deeper in LGT than he was before w/ $16,400. Angela attempts the doubler.

John Nash's Nobel Prize announcement mentioned this theory that looked at rivalries among competitors.

"What is Game Theory?"...now she's getting somewhere. Ali finds the final one to close out Literary S.F. & also tries the TDD on her $5,600 if she is to have a chance to catch Matthew, who now sits at $20,400; Angela's got $8,400. Here's the champ's critical clue:

This bookstore on Columbus Ave. at Broadway is also a publisher whose books include Howl.

"What is Daedalus?" is wrong- the name's City Lights. Time expires on the final two clues that had to do w/ Winston Churchill.
