Every Wednesday I am part of a pub trivia team. We tend to do pretty well, usually in the top 3 out of 15 or so teams going into the final question. The final is where you can bet up to 20 of your points (we had 69 points going into the final last night, 1st place had 71, last place had 45 or so). Basically, with that many teams, you have to bet it all to hold your place. We notoriously mess up the last question a lot more than we get it.

And that usually gets the right answer.
