why wouldnt he just bet 4000 or 5000 or something more than 2600? to me that just seems odd, i dont know, ive never watched jeopardy so i dont know any rules or if the people losing usually always bet it all
He should have bet $2,601 because the maximum possible scores his opponents could have got was $16,000. Since he had $13,400, betting $2,601 would have given him the minimum amount required to guarantee
him a win.
I sincerely hope he was doing that on purpose, because if not, that's a pretty bone-headed move. Of course, they could have all planned it in advance knowing that all of them would get paid.
