Jeopardy

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been following this insane man winning Jeopardy? I believe he's now up to $630k in 11 days now. He's a sports bettor from Vegas who allegedly grew up near Naperville.

I watched today's episode where he won $131,000 (JUST TODAY). The guy is incredible. Anytime someone talks about a bettor from Vegas I unfortunately think of the fact that he's somehow cheating, but for the time being, I don't see a way he loses!

He wagered $60k going into final Jeopardy and got it with ease. He practically chooses true daily doubles on every daily double.

Yeah i've been watching and it is very impressive, I've even seen him do a true daily double and get it wrong then still come back to have enough money not to be caught in Final Jeopardy. He also picks from the bottom and is always trying to find the daily doubles. I do not think he's any smarter / quicker than others like Ken or Brad but man he just bets huge sums of money.

Speaking of Jeopardy, how is Alex doing?  I thought I heard recently that he had cancer, and one of the bad kinds.

He has pancreatic cancer.  He says he is fighting it and that's pretty much all we know

I still haven't seen him buzz in and get one wrong. Incredible.

I wonder how he prepared to know all the answers.

Trebek asked him and he said he was terrible in school. He said he studied topics he wasn't sure on to prepare.

The best thing they did was drop the limit on days you could win.

He started off Friday with an incorrect answer, then shortly after answered another question wrong.

There used to be a limit where if you won 5 games in a row you retired and only could come back in the Tournament of Champions. Once they got rid of that limit, you had guys like Jennings appear who became legit famous for winning weeks to months in a row.

I don't even care if he is picking at random, dude knows everything and he's got the buzzer down. Insane.

How can this guy be so good? Will he ever lose? He could be set for life.

So winning 22 days in a row on Jeopardy means you're a "scrub"? Cool.

It'll be fun if they ever do a special with them facing off against each other.

Amazing. And it doesn't seem like they are finding stiffs to compete against him. The competition seems solid.

Close one but James pulled it out in Final Jeopardy!

Didn't know it was pre-empted because of the Scrubs game and saw it on my DVR this morning from like 2am.
