$5K SPIN ID #58: RF3999574

Jeannie Blanke (Newbury Park, CA)- Insurance office manager (her hubby's in attendance)
Justin Kowal (Glen Burnie, MD)- Financial manager
CHAMP: Susan Jann (whose two-day cash winnings total $42,400)

In Terms of Tonight's First Six Categories, Light 'em Up:

After successes on the first two All Over the World clues, Justin goes DD Hunting in the center of Governors...no DD yet, but he's the halftime leader $4,600-$3,600 over Susan; the deficit's $1K (& that's how much Jeannie is in the red, as far as this game's concerned). The DD of the rd.'s chosen by...Susan inside the $1K Mything in Action box, now sitting on -$800; Justin's still hanging onto the lead, $4,200-$3,800. To get Jeannie to just 200 negative bucks:

Oh, the heartache! After the hero Aeneas left her, Dido, the queen of this land, took her own life.

"What is Greece?"...no, it was Carthage. They use the HS Strategy on the Wordplay Random Sampler & time runs out before they could get a look at the $200 answer, but Susan's now ahead $7K-$5,200; Jeannie's back at a bad $800.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $400 (Mything in Action)
TOTAL LT: $2,200

Double J! Tournament:

Jeannie responds correctly on the $800 Medical Etymology clue to get a second shot at a DD three clues into this rd. while back at square one; the champ was right on the first clue. Jeannie tries for a G-spot this clue:

From the Greek for "coal", it's transmitted by farm animals, contaminated wool & biological weapons.

"What is Anthrax?"...yes indeedy. Shortly thereafter, they resume DD Hunting...& the last one's chosen by Justin from $1,600 worth of A Little Lit; he has $12K & is trailing the titleholder by $4,200, leaving Jeannie at a positive $3,400. He bets $2,400 w/ a minute left in this rd. of play.

Umberto Eco wrote a parody of this novel, having Umberto Umberto fall for the aged Granita.

Nothing from him- the title was Lolita. Time expires on the $400 Film School & "De" clues, plus the $800 "De" answer.

TOTAL DJ! LT: $6,800

Pre-Final J! Totals:
Susan: $17,400
Justin: $11,600

Susan: $17,400
Justin: $14K
Jeannie: $4,200

FJ! TOPIC #68: Shakespeare.

The last speech in this play says "No grave upon the earth shall clip in it a pair so famous".

Response: "What is Antony and Cleopatra?"
Final score: $6,400

Justin has to be right...but "What are Troilus & Cressida?" appears instead, ending his game w/ $5,799. Susan incorrectly agreed w/ me on Romeo & Juliet, but she's $11,400 wealthier for a three-day total of $53,800.
