    Wow. Today's was straight hard to watch. Power players weren't so powerful today. Hopefully none of those 3 ever get invited back if they do this again.

    Simple math, you do what it takes to win.

    Having said that, were I on and the person with the lead going into final I would bet the amount to let the next closer person tie me. I would think that were the tables turned the next day and they in first and I in second they might bet the same way so we could both continue to play and make money. I am surprised no players have ever thought of that, I am sure they are not allowed to talk with each other prior to taping.

    I thought Alex had mentioned a month or so ago, something about the possibility of a tie-breaker clue if that should happen. So I Googled and came up with this: https://www.jeopardy.com/jbuzz/featu...ardy-scenarios

    1. Tie Breakers
    There can only be one winner. This has long been the case in tournament play and was recently adapted into regular game play. A tie at the end of Final Jeopardy! sends the game into a tie-breaker clue.
    If there are two or three players tied for first place after each contestant unveils their Final Jeopardy! response, Alex will present one more category and read the clue. The clue has no dollar value and does not increase the player’s winnings. The first contestant to buzz in and respond correctly is declared the winner. Should all participating contestants fail to provide a correct response, this process is repeated until one contestant responds correctly. The most recent instance of this rare tie scenario happened in 2014 at the Teen Tournament. Watch below to see how it played out.

    But if all 3 end with $0 then none of them win in non-tournaments. Saw it happen for the first time a couple months ago. Alex was like "well, sorry you all lose. we'll have 3 new contestants tomorrow."

    Thanks Mike, I know in the past people would tie and come back so it makes sense that the producers would anticipate someone coming up with the little scheme I outlined above. I did not know about the tie rule being updated, I like this better.
