That dude may very well have been better than James. If they played 10 times, I don't think either would win more than 7. If James doesn't find that second DD it was over tonight..
When I was in high school, I was on our school team on our local TV station (channel 6). I can tell all of you that it is a lot harder to answer when the lights were on. This was a long time ago but one of the few ones I didn't choke on was aka Muhammed Ali.
Obviously we know his weak point. Maybe there will be a final Jeopardy like this:
As I see it, the other advantage to this approach is it lets him build his bankroll at the beginning of the game, while the new players still have their jitters when the bright lights go on, and haven't quite got the timing down when to buzz-in (although they supposedly practice this).Why are his competitors still starting at the $200 level and working down. These people have lost before the game even starts. He works across the $1000’s, has $4 to $5k when he hits the daily double and the rest have $800. No one is adapting. Not sure it matters, Dude is smart and quick.
He’s going to have to miss on a couple of daily doubles and run across a competitor with some balls to bet more than $500 in the daily doubles. He’ll get unlucky,but might be a while.
I thought the one guy was going to give him a run as he knew a lot of answers but James killed him with signaling device reaction time. I think there was a stretch where james wasn’t confident with the answer so he hung back, but once he got command he did not let up. He did not find one of the daily doubles in double jeopardy which “hurt” his total.Going off memory James won his 30th game last night. He won over $79,000.
