Cooper Lair, a 16-year-old Little Rock Christian Academy student, watches himself play in the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament semifinals on Tuesday at his watch party at Jim's Razorback Pizza in west Little Rock.

The Little Rock Christian Academy student competing in the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament will enter the second day of the final round with only $200.

Cooper Lair, 16, on Thursday trailed going into the final question of the first half with both of his fellow competitors $12,000 ahead of him. When the final category popped up, “Best-Selling Books,” Lair bet nearly all of his $5,600. However, the answer stumped Lair and he ended up writing a question mark instead of a question, losing $5,400.

Lair will have a chance to redeem himself on Friday in the second round of the Jeopardy! finals.

Lair held a watch party Tuesday at Jim's Razorback Pizza in Little Rock for the airing of the semifinals. Another watch party will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at the restaurant.
