1. Jeopardy used to go in NQTW but since WE'RE ALL AGREEING NOT TO POST IN DONKWOOD'S BULLSHIT THREAD you guys should check it out. This guy has an eight-day total of a little over $300,000. Two days in a row this week he topped $60,000. He's introduced as a bartender and he lol'd when Trebek asked him about his education. I believe Trebek said he's already sixth on the all-time non-tournament winnings list, and he got there the fastest. I doubt he's gonna last as long as Ken Jennings but it's fun to watch.

    Here is a link to his biggest win. Not sure how long the link will last.

  5. that's pretty sick. I think the decent people at Jeopardy! are probably nervous at first, but if they get past day 2, they seem to hit a zone where they are at their best. I think it would be a cool psychological study for a school or something to track all the results over time and then interview the people who got through 4 days or so and see if there's a commonality in answers to shrink created pointed questions.

    I think there might be a way to deconstruct previous runs to find optimal mindsets based on common answers etc/

  6. he got interviewed on Good Morning America a couple days ago and he said watching episodes was the best preparation.

  7. that guy is awesome hope he makes a huge run here. Don't think he's as good as ken was but he's got balls, I think to beat ken he'd have to get the daily doubles at opportune times and go balls to the wall with them

  8. That motherfucker bet $34K on Final Jeopardy?!

  9. No comparison to Alex Jacob right?
    Add Camz to Rail
  10. I think Alex Jacob played a better game. he did all the little things to extend his edges. this guy has been fortunate a couple times to land on Daily Doubles and win big wagers. I'd take Alex Jacob to minimize his chances of losing any single day and win more money over a single run, on average, but it's hard to say who would win over a bunch of head-to-head matches.

    Except they film 5 episodes in 1 day once a week. So to truly make it into the second day you need to win several unless your first episode was final 1 of the filming day.

  12. Man. Thought he was gonna lose today for sure. He was horrible til he got on a run late. I'm so pissed at final jeopardy. I knew it was Mongolia right away but couldn't come up with Monaco. I even paused it for like a minute before they showed the answers and just couldn't get Monaco.

  14. yeah, only 600 bucks heading into double jeopardy
    Add dolphin13 to Rail
  15. just watched it. I got Final! haha pretty sure I learned the Monaco fact from watching Jeopardy. I don't think he's been as low as $600 but he's had some really poor starts after Single Jeopardy. Trebek even commented on it.

  16. I think the ticket to getting an extended run is when you master the buzzer. At least that's Jennings' claim

    It also helps when you master the buzzer while being smarter than 99.9% of contestants.

  18. those jeopardy try outs are tough. this guys are on point that make. i feel so dumb when a player ends up with a negative amount

  19. Buzzer is the key

    They have flashing lights that resemble what a tree does at a drag racing strip. You have to time the light correctly so that you buzz at the right time or you get like a one second penalty where your buzzer doesn't work.


    I watched that Sports Jeopardy on NBCSports a while back. I would probably freeze up and choke but when I watch that show on tv I can answer 90% of the questions. I've watched episodes of that show where I'll maybe not know 2 or 3 of the questions the whole show. I also feel like there's probably a million other dudes that could do the same thing. The questions aren't ever terribly difficult. I'm bad with jersey numbers. Never cared about that shit. The contestants always seem to fail on that category too though so not giving a fuck about jersey numbers must be a pretty common thing.

  20. interesting. I knew the buzzer had a cool-down but I thought they just had to time when Trebek finished the question.

  27. if they didn't accept that last "Snipe," he would have been 100 off a runaway. not that it mattered. would have been a shitty ruling.
