How would I do on Jeopardy tonight?

I'm going to gauge how much money I would have won on Jeopardy if I were playing, and for the record, I always bet it all on the daily double. We'll just have to see if I'd ring in for it or not ( I know that's not quite how Jeopardy works, but hey, I don't have a buzzer.)

Anyhow, on to the show!

So, I'm up $9,400 after the second round. That puts me in fourth place. Not good.

Jeopardy Double Jeopardy Final Jeopardy (Question: Washington, D.C.)
Right _____ Right _____ Right
$200 _____ $400 _______ Only going to bet ... like $200
$600 _____ $2,000
$600 _____ $2,000

Wrong _____ Wrong _____ Wrong
none! ______ $800 _______ Right! but only wagered $200

Contestant 1 had only $1 dollar. Contestant 2 had $15,000 and the winner had $23,200. So I finished with $9,600 and finished in third. The lesson to be learned, bet it all in final jeopardy and I still would have come in second.
