Due to legislative action of 1707, she was officially the last monarch of independent Scotland

Today is the first semi-final match of the 2021 Professors Tournament and the players are: Sam Buttrey, an associate professor of operations research at The Naval Postgraduate School In Monterey, CA; J.P.

Round 1 Categories: Professions – 19th Century Lit – Modern Shorthand – Historic Americans – British Humor – Fossil Words

J.P. found the Jeopardy! round Daily Double in “Professions” under the $600 clue on the 6th pick of the round. He was in the lead with $1,800, $600 more than Katie in second place. “I believe the occasion demands a true Daily Double,” he said. He was RIGHT about that and had the correct response, too.

Walter Bagehot, a Victorian who wrote on central banking had this profession & edited the magazine of the same name. show

Sam finished in the lead with $6,600. J.P. was second with $6,200 and Katie was last with $4,600. No clues went uncovered.

Round 2 Categories: Latin American Geography – Chemistry – Sidekicks – Gems & Jewels – Let There Be Enlightenment – Say Something Silly, Professor

J.P. found the first Daily Double in “Latin American Geography” under the $2,000 clue on the 5th pick. He was in the lead with $8,200 now, $800 more than Sam in second place. He bet $5,400 and thought it might be Cuba. That was WRONG.

The 80 mile wide Mona Passage separates the Dominican Republic from this island. show

J.P. got the last Daily Double in “Let There Be Enlightenment” under the $1,200 clue on the 9th pick. After zipping through the rest of the Latin American category, he was now in third place with $5,200, $2,200 less than Sam’s lead. J.P. bet $3,000 and, this time, he was RIGHT.

This concept of an actual or implicit agreement between rulers & the ruled gave a 1762 Rousseau work its title. show

Sam finished in the lead with $19,000. J.P. was next with $13,400 and Katie was in third place with $9,000. No clues went uncovered.

Only ONE of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.


James VI was Scotland’s king after his mother, Mary Queen of Scots, was forced to abdicate. When England’s Queen Elizabeth I died without an heir in 1603, James became England’s first King James. Although James ruled under the Union of the Crowns (of England and Scotland), he was unable to officially unite the two countries into a single entity. That did not happen until James II’s daughter Anne came to the throne in the first decade of the 18th century.

Anne was Queen of England, Scotland and Ireland from 3/8/1702 until 5/1/1707, when the Acts of Union transformed England and Scotland into Great Britain. Anne continued to reign as Queen of Great Britain and Ireland until her death in 1714. Ireland became an official part of Great Britain on 1/1/1801.

Katie went with Mary, Queen of Scots, who was beheaded on 2/8/1587. Katie bet and lost it all.

J.P. also chose the ill-fated Mary. He also bet and lost everything.

Sam got it right. He bet $7,401 and won the game with $26,401. Sam Buttrey is the first semi-finalist. We’ll see him again on Thursday and Friday. J.P. and Katie are going home with $10,000 each.
