What was the wager? 5,601; you would've won by one point anyway. Bob, congratulations to you for a great game. And Dave Traini, come on out here, you've played superbly throughout this tournament. Dave, good having you back with us. And thank you, ladies and gentlemen, for tuning us in. We'll say goodbye, everybody's happy about Bruce's win of a quarter of a million dollars. I hope you enjoyed this Super Jeopardy! summer tournament. We'll try to do it again next year. So long, everyone!)
