"Jeopardy!" 7/5

PLAYERS:
Stephanie Fontaine (Arlington, VA)- Analyst
Chris Sullivan (Traverse City, MI)- Land protection specialist
CHAMP: Ron King (whose one-day cash winnings total $13,601; he's also a volleyball referee)

Thursday's Bases:

THE OCCULT
STOCK SYMBOLS
SPARE ME!
ONLY PARTLY TRUE
GEOGRAPHICALLY IN BETWEEN (each clue lists two countries)
"B" RIGHT (the B will appear towards the end of the word/words)

Halfway through this round, even though each of those contestants didn't each sweep a category, they're all tied at three grand apiece. One of those Stock Symbols has tonight's first Daily Double...it's the one for $600 chosen by Chris w/ $4,200; everyone's currently separated by $400- Stephanie has $4,600 & Ron's therefore in first place w/ $5K. Chris wagers one G for a $200 lead if he gets this answer right:

This financial services company, stock symbol WFC, was founded in 1852 to serve the West.


"What is Wells Fargo?"...52 bills now in his bank! Once that board's cleared, Ron's back in the lead over him by $800 at six big ones.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS:
$400 Spare Me!
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS: $800 Stock Symbol
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $1,200

This Evening's Double J! Offerings:

TITLE ACTORS
SHAKESPEARE, SHAKESPEARE, FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!
"O" MY
THE 1830s
YOU DO KNOW JACK

"O" My- Stephanie got that topic's first three answers to take over first w/ $7K, but Chris has himself another DD shot after beating her to the punch on the $1,600 response w/ $6,800 now. He bets twice as much as he did before on:

In Math, it's 1/8 of a circle or a 45-degree angle; it's also an instrument for measuring angles.


Nothing from him- that's an octant & he's dipped to $4,800. The third & last one's attached to a Shakespeare clue...the last clue of the round gives Chris the DD Sweep & a current score of $7,200; Ron has exactly 10 thou & Stephanie leads the champ by $2,600. Chris goes back to gambling a grand:

Bad stuff will go down when guys are named 1, 2 & 3 Murderer, as Fleance & his dad discover in this play.


"What is King Lear?" wasn't it. The title was MacBeth instead.
