    Re: "eventually" in front or behind a sentence?

    A) Eventually, all my games will be sold to Peter.

    B) All my games will be sold to Peter eventually.


    1) Eventually, all my games will be sold to Peter and are unlikely to be resold.

    2) All my games will be sold to Peter eventually and are unlikely to be resold.

    We say 'at the beginning or the end of a sentence', not 'in front or behind'.
