For the first time ever, a three-way  MAR 17 2007

For the first time ever, a three-way tie occurred on Jeopardy. The leader going into Final Jeopardy bet to tie so that his competitors would take home big prize money instead of meager 2nd/3rd place winnings. I'm surprised there's not more collusion of this sort on the show...although I guess there would be some prisoner's dilemma issues. (thx, danny)

Update: The aforementioned leader has a post about the tie on his blog.
