I've been watching it all while he's been on there, I knew he would go over the million last night, and as luck would have it, something came up and I needed to leave the house and I missed it!   ::)

Yes, the guy is phenomenal.  He's especially fun to watch because he isn't a jerk like some of the other big winners have been.  I expect he will quickly pass Ken Jennings.

Helps to be a grambling too.
It's kinda too bad to have a person like that winning. The average contestant don't stand a chance with him.
I feel pretty good when I get 2 right. ;D

He's a human encyclopedia/Wikipedia!
His game plan of starting at the bottom and his betting schemes are pretty different.
I feel bad for the other 2 contestants.
Guy like this sure burns through their prize money budget.
 It's kind of fitting that he's drawing all those eyeballs to the show in what could be Alex Trebek's last season, following his announcement of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Good way for Trebek to go out, at the height of the show's popularity.

   I have watched him several times and he is very impressive. Yes, he starts at the bottom and moves quickly so they clear the board and don't run out to taime BS'ing and leave money on the table. He is a trivia genius IMHO. I always got annoyed when they were advised of a 1 minute warning and the contestant would pick the $200 question instead of the $1,000 one. Never made sense to me. I would not want to be playing against him. I predict he will be the new contest overall champion.

I believe they're getting the set ready for Final Jeopardy.  They have to put up the screens so there isn't cheating.  They have to also use pens instead of clickers.  

Here's the real Jeopardy champ:

Can you imagine if you're finally selected to go on Jeopardy! and you have to go up against that guy? He sure is racking up cash in a hurry. It's fun to watch in a 'How much will he make tonight?' kinda way, but there isn't any competition.

If it had been a really tough answer that might have let the lady win.  As it was, pretty easy to figure out.  That is how I figure he will get beat is when the answer is too hard and they miss the final answer.

   With right at $54,000 in winnings/score last night the number 2 guy would have beat any normal contestant. I don't guess there is a contest limit to what the guy can win.

It's all about how he plays the daily double. yesterday he only got 1. Had the other guys got both in the second round it would have been all over.

Thanks!  I could tell early on that the other guy had James a little concerned.

Five minutes left in the show and my satellite dish washed out!

Had the other guy caught the 2 daily doubles, I think it would have been over for James!

Overall, good show rather than just taking over!

I'll be watching again tonight!

I believe the only way James is going to be stopped beaten, is for someone with some pretty good smarts to hit all of the daily doubles and James not to get any of the three available!

My wife called it at the halfway mark.  We have watched it from the get go with Art Fleming. Fleming died from pancreatic cancer, the same problem that Alex has. I read about a breakthrough discovery process the sounds promising. I hope so.  

Bonnie and have often joked that we could win if we could compete as one person. We have very diverse areas of knowledge and education. Just a wild dream but fun ! !  One of her best areas is movies.  I have learned the names of many stars, not just well known stars, but a lot of character actors like Harry Carey Jr.  Looking forward to the 16th Pig Roast and a chance to bore all of you with my latest medical adventures.  So far so good....Fat Olde Elf...

The gal was sharp and IMO James was off his game.
Now he can get back to his passion of sports betting and not worry about an ocassional loss.
Kind of wish he had set the record.

Between the 3 of them they missed only one question.  He hit the first daily double too soon.  She was smart enough to go for double or nothing on her first daily double and made big money.
The stars were not aligned for James.
Will definitely watch the next tournament of champions.
Funny how he was one day from breaking Ken Jennings all time winnings.
Would it be fun to see those two go head to head?

James was on 2 other game shows before Jeopardy.  The first one was the on called the Chase.  It was the American version of a British show.  It pitted a team of contestants against a trivia expert.  They get to a final round against the expert.  The team is asked questions in an allotted time.  They then bring in the expert to answer the same questions.  If the team beats the expert, they win.  Most times, those teams lose.  The team beat the expert 26-9, with James answering 19 of the questions.  

James also has a BS in mathematics.

Did you see the snide look she gave alex in the first round when she went all in on the double jeopardy and he asked if she was taking clues from how James played?

Yeah, that was pretty funny.  Also, what a difference in last night's game.  There were quite a few questions where you could hear the crickets...

She knows her onions.
Snide looks aside.
So what if she looks sideways at Alex.
I was pulling for James but he met his match doubles and all.

She definitely has an air about herself!

Definitely would test positive for attitude!

But....... she's smart!

I missed it tonight, but i hope she won. She beat James,  so she earned her stint how ever long or short it may be.

She lost.  She didn't know the final Jeopardy question.  The other two did.  

Saw a blurb about how much James should get out of his $2.46 million.  Between the Fed and California, its estimated he'll get $1.38 million.  Although he's a resident of NV, the show was filmed in California, and their tax rate at that level is 12%.  But, since the earnings was over $1 million, they tack on another 1%.

It was a real good show, they were all three really close scores going into Final Jeopardy.

I was glad to see another winner!

After falling down the rabbit hole from Jeff link I found this:

During her second game, Boettcher bet all she had on a Daily Double clue, prompting Trebek to say, Influenced by James, are we? (Holzhauer made money at such a rapid pace partly because of his large bets.)

Fans noticed Boettchers quizzical reaction.

Boettcher said in an email on Thursday that she reacted that way because, at that moment, she had seen Holzhauer play only one game the one he lost to her and in that game he made relatively modest bets.

Boettcher said she knew to bet high from her years watching the show not from watching Holzhauer in particular.
