Jeopardy! champion Jackie Kelly tried to make it three in a row on Friday night. Here’s how things played out in tonight’s game.

Kelly, a pension calculation developer from Cary, North Carolina, entered tonight’s Jeopardy! game with a two-day total of $36,301. She demonstrated a willingness to wager big in the later stages of the game, and so far it has paid off.

Friday, she was paired up against John Darcy, an editor from Los Angeles, California, and Jennie Bunde, a rabbinical student from Galesburg, Illinois.

What was tonight’s Final Jeopardy question?

While the game was already decided, all three contestants did manage to answer “Final Jeopardy” correctly. Here’s the clue in the category “Shakespeare’s Women”:

It is said of her, “Infected minds to their deaf pillows will discharge their secrets: more needs she the divine than the physician”

Answer: Who is Lady Macbeth?

A closer game would have made the final clue a little more exciting as all three players knew the answer. However, it did help Jackie Kelly win more in one game than she had in the previous two combined.
