Jeopardy = 2019

Post by bkuehn1952 » Mon May 06, 2019 12:16 pm

Anyone catch any of this "Sports Gambler's" performance? That guy has one broad range of knowledge. He likely has not read all the major works of fiction, poetry, philosophy, etc... but he knows who wrote the book, the title, famous quotes.

GHIN Handicap: 7.8 … 9.2 … Let’s just say I am around a 14!

Yes, been watching for a few weeks now. James is amazing. Pushing close to 2 million in winnings. He's a freak of nature.

I've been feeling sorry for the other contestants. He buries them every night.

Yup. It's fun to watch. At the same time I am amazed that there are answers (or categories even) that he doesn't know hardly at all, when I actually know those. It's that or he strategically decides to give himself a mental break and let his opponents put some points on the board. But that could backfire somewhat if they find (and answer) the daily doubles. It nearly did when the other guy ended with nearly $54k and lost, by $18.

I have to say that the way he jumps on the buzzer, without actually physically jumping (unlike some other contestants) is quite impressive. I am sure that the others have the answers to some of the questions, but James always beat them to the buzzer.

Losing Jeopardy is the one thing I really miss about cable.
Keep it short stupid.

I’ve been tuned in to his performance. Unbelievable. The only way he will loose is overbet on what he thinks is a sure thing.
Tee it up!
