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...

I saw what Jeff saw.  Whoa, what an attitude.  I am rooting for her to lose.

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%.  
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

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 Boettcher’s 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.
