    He usually goes big for like 15-20k but he goes 1.3k? Definitely lost on purpose but the other contestant who beat him was a genius.

    Funny, Jennings and Holzhauer lost to people that didn't even last a week. The first woman lost after a day, and Emma after 3 days. "Giant slayer" is far from the deserved title if the "giant" shot themselves in the foot.

    he was fun to watch. the librarian controlled the board and nailed both daily doubles. i was shocked james only bet 1400 on final jeopardy. he knew he was on the ropes, dont knw why he didn't parlay it. why i say that? second place only gets 2k, its not like he will get the 25k added to his total. it was his to take!

      He only bet $1399 because he knew that Emma, who was in the lead going into Final Jeopardy, would almost certainly wager enough to have a final score of twice his own plus a dollar should she answer correctly, which is exactly what she did. This meant that if she got it right, she assures herself victory, and there was nothing James could do to stop her. Therefore, he had no choice but to hope she gets the question wrong and lose that $20,201. So what James did instead was to insulate himself from Jay in 3rd place, who had $11,000. By betting $1399, he would have ended the game with no less than $22,001, so even if Jay bet everything and got it right, he would have still been trailing James by a dollar.

    He messed up in round 1 when he picked the Daily Double right away and he only won $ 1,000 on it. That was the worst thing to do. Then the game turned around when the other woman got both DD's in round 2 and it kept him from doubling his money and she took over the lead at that point and eventually won. For the first time, James was behind going into Final Jeopardy and there was no way he could win because Emma knew the answer to FJ too and she outbet him and won.

    He did the math on that final question, and figured what it would take to just come under if the other players bet it all. That's kind of a class act way to "lose" when you are done playing.

    He would have lost final jeopardy anyway, even if he bet everything and the winner bet what she did. By one dollar, in fact

      And of course, taped under the watchful eyes of Standards and Practices. Besides, Merv would be rolling in his grave, if he found out his own creation was fixed or rigged. After all, he did create the show in response to the scandals.

    He knew he was going to lose because she knew the answer. If you noti ed she wagered enough that even if james went all in she'd be $1 ahead. The second and third place dont go home with the full amount thats why he bet just enough to stay in second place. A true legend

    My considered Opinion! Mark that. My "Opinion":
    How Jeopardy gypped the "Constant Champion"
    Over their many appearances, the Jeopardy crew pays keen attention to the categories in which the current Champion appears weakest (as they do with
    all the Champions).
    Though never truly weak, Holzhauer was, at least, weaker in some categories. A full show worth of questions were then formulated in the 4 catagories in
    which he was weakest. As the shows slid by, contestants who appeared most proficient in the Champions weak areas were identified and assigned to appear in the Jeopardy episode calculated to unseat the Champ. These 2 contestants were each masters of 2 of Holzhauers weak areas. Excepting
    those 4 areas of expertise, the 2 opponents would not be able to last in a regular game with regular catagories. As we've already seen, the player who unseated Holzhauer has already gone down in flames in a regular game. Engineering of Holzhauers "Expert Competition" and stacking the "category" deck
    was not just "bad form", but was outright treachery.
    So, what is your opinion?

    It's pretty amazing that he lost on a betting error, as opposed to not getting the question right.

    • Zottffss

      He was betting on Emma to get the answer wrong because he knew she'd outbet him regardless. He made that small wager to ensure that he will at least lock second place.

    • Ann Pardue

      No, he knew that the question was in her area of professional expertise. He did not bet against her expertise knowing that her chances were good to win by 1 dollar. He played the odds to finish second place.

    I really prefer the original system where if someone one five consecutive games, they were retired as undefeated champions. At the end of the season, the undefeated champions battled it out in the Tournament of Champions.

      @S. P. Spatafore I'm thinking that Jeopardy planned it so that no matter what subject he picked in round 1 to start the game, that was gonna be the DD so he could only win $ 1,000 on it.

    • Jonathan Paxman
      Jonathan Paxman 3 bulan yang lalu +2

      @Brat PAQ Do the math: 3rd place was $11k. James bet was exactly enough to ensure that if he got the question wrong, he would stay ahead of 3rd even if 3rd bet everything (by $1). He could only take 1st if Emma got the question wrong: and he knew she would bet enough to stay in front. So the bet was the very best he could do in the circumstances.

    Or he got tired of being on the show, bid low in hopes the other two would bid higher. Know when to cash out or the House wins.
