Jeopardy

Postby jlw257 » Wed Apr 24, 2019 2:24 pm

Now days everything stops at our house when Jeopardy come on. I’m amazed at the current champion James Holzhauer win day after day. In 14 games he has won over a million dollars

Larry at our house we watch Wheel of Fortune then Jeopardy each evening. We too have been following this mans amazing run. My wife is convinced he has a photographic memory. I'm convinced he has the most effective strategy of anyone I've seen on that show. He's going to be a tough one to beat.

I have a photographic memory.

Problem is they stopped selling the film I need about 35 years ago!
Take care and God bless,

He's amazingly fast...in answering and selecting his next category. Makes the boldest wagers I've ever seen. Guess it helps to be a "Professional Sports Gambler". Not a profession I'd recommend to anybody. I wonder how well he does at that...and will he blow his winnings in the casino?
You gotta admit, he's one pretty smart guy!

I like the way he goes right for the highest dollar amounts. He seems to know about every topic. I’m following casually. But my 9 year old is following intently every night.

Funny story. He was watching on his tablet and my wife was watching on tv. He was getting all the answers. My thought he tapped into his hidden genius. Turns out the tablet was 1 second faster than the tv.

He is quite the topic right now.Espn had a long article about him after his 11th game.He definitely has a plan and sticks to it.It also helps to be very smart.Ken Jennings also gave him high praise also.

I do not watch this show but I was over at my mother and stepfather's house last week and they had it on. This guy is impressive with his knowledge and speed. He's like the Ben Shapiro of game shows.
