Chris\’ betting strategy for Jeopardy

Chris has an interesting betting strategy for Jeopardy. He says if you have more than two times as much money as the next fellow going into Final Jeopardy, you should bet to try to tie. In other words, bet exactly the amount such that if you get it wrong, and your opponent gets it right, you will end up tied. Then you will both come back the next day. The idea is that you are better off facing an opponent who you already know you can beat!

There’s quite a bit of information on the web about other Jeopardy betting strategies as well. Jeopardy betting has even been the topic of a book!
