    For him to lose, it is going to require him missing two different daily doubles/ final jeopardy and the winning player is also going to have to score a ton. Dude is just insane

    How many of his 18 wins haven’t been runaways?

    And props to that dude who tried to chase him down. He had some game and some guts.

    Gotta think people will now adopt this way of playing. Most people only win a couple times in a row. Why not try and get the biggest payout possible? I wonder what Jeopardy will do to account for how much money this new wagering will cost them long term.

    That one Indian dude was a really good player in like his 3rd or 4th game. Sucks for the few people that prob would have won multiple games vs almost anyone else.

    His signaling is hitting at 55%+. That's elite and among the best ever on the show. His knowledge is clearly elite. And his strategy. It's brilliant. Build a bank roll so he's ready for the daily double. Jump from category to category to keep the competition from getting comfortable.

    The first category he picked last two nights was the daily double. I wonder if jeopardy is putting them in the $1k clues on purpose now. I think that happens in like 3 of last 5 episodes.

    "The Jeopardy! Fan‏ @_thejeopardyfan 2h2 hours ago
    He needn’t worry. Jeopardy brings in upwards of $100M a year in revenue. James winning an extra 55k a night for a few weeks isn’t going to break the bank, especially considering the increased ad revenue that results from the publicity & increased ratings."

    First I've watched live of this guy. I mean the only way he loses is if the messes up a double Jeopardy. His buzzer skills are just insane

    When he hits stride, it's something to behold. Just hit the afterburners in Double and ran away with it yet again. Imar was pretty formidable but just got dusted like the rest in the end

    I assume you mean "daily double" but I disagree. He has left holes for players, they just haven't taken them. Today nobody got "aardvark" right before he got a daily double. That could've changed the entire game by preventing a huge swing.

    Obviously it wouldn't matter tonight but in some games, all you need is to get lucky on picking a daily double before he can and then being aggressive

    Yes and no on the last part. Definitely had game but if you're gonna go for a big risk on the daily double, you gotta go all in and not leave the extra 1k on the table. Wouldn't have mattered in this case, but he gave up a decent amount of EV by doing so. Basically he knew he had to go for it but didn't have the guts to do the whole thing.
