For the 3rd day in a row, we have a new champ. Michelle Martin won $24,800 in yesterday’s match. Today she competes anew against these two players: Darren Abernethy from Washington, DC; and Judy Arginteanu from Minneapolis, MN.

Michelle found the Jeopardy! round Daily Double in “Portmanteaus.” She was in second place with $2,400, $5,800 behind Judy in the lead. She bet $1,000 and she was RIGHT.

In 1949 Milton Berle hosted the first of these on the tube, for the Damon Runyon Memorial Cancer Fund. show

Judy finished in the lead with $8,200, that Minne-Coda category about her home state being a huge boon for her. Michelle was second with $4,200 and Darren was last with $1,800.

Judy found the first Double Jeopardy Daily Double in “Authors Against Adaptations.” She was in the lead with $9,400, $4,000 more than Michelle in second place. She bet $2,000 and she was RIGHT.
