    The strategy has popped up since the late 90s iirc. Big Dick Rog did it as well.

    Chu wasn’t the first guy. That play style has been around for a long time. Chu was just the most successful with it until James

    It’s a high risk high reward style and it has a degree of luck. Not only do you have to find the DDs but you have to get them right and you have to have gotten enough answers right beforehand so you have enough of a bank to take advantage of it. Most people who try never get to take advantage of it

    Assuming that we are talking about the practice of searching out the DDs and not the high wager strategy, that's wrong. There's huge value in finding the DDs even if you know nothing about the category as you prevent others from getting the DDs.

    He seemed slow, maybe this was the last taping of the day and he was tired. DD placement screwed him too. Was Alex emotional at the end?

    I don't like that the DD she doubled up on was a "letter" category, those are too easy for a DD. Sucks that James lost not missing a single clue

    Yeah idk why he didn’t go for it...I guess he was just hoping she’d get it wrong, but you gotta go all in and hope she went pussy on the bet (which she kinda did)

    It was the correct wager. He couldn’t chase her down if they were both right, was going to be enough if he was right and she was wrong, and was small enough in case they were both wrong and third place was right.

    If you’re a fan of jeopardy, do you watch for the people or for the trivia/mental challenge? I watched to try and get smarter and to appreciate people way smarter than me. James made it fun and relatable. He was fun to watch imo.

    He had to assume 3rd would get it right if he missed. She did the same. Which is why they all bet weird amounts.

    I watched without it being spoiled. When she went for the true daily double to get the lead, I was very impressed. When she only bet 3000 on the 2nd one, I figured she missed her chance to close him out. But as mentioned, she was on the buzzer like a champ and the 3rd place guy also chewed up some of the money James needed to get the lead back. Just a crazy coincidence that he fell on the night most expected him to snap Ken's all time earnings record.

    Long live the king Jennings.
