        I don't even watch jeopardy, why am I watching this? Scratch that why did I watch the whole thing?

          Quit watching after it was spoiled he'd lose. Question though; since these are taped a good couple months in advance, has anyone tried to do this process? James really was an interesting contestant, and surely someone else, maybe more than one, would try this way of playing?

              I know what the term playing aggressive means, but I just can’t stop to think about right after Alex finished speaking all the contestants just go apeshit and beat each other up.

                Start at the higher dollar amount questions and bet more on the daily double. Holy shit, this guy is a genius . Why didnt anybody else think of that.

                        With that kind of knowledge/intelligence combined with his aggressive playstyle?

                        There is little else that he can play a fast game and stay safe while doing so.
                        Imagine him counting cards and tricking casinos into winning him money. They'd throw him out faster than he can buzz in at Jeopardy! If that even works anymore, that is.

                        Poker is too dependent on luck for his intelligence to shine through and his speed in buzzing in doesn't matter. Time can drag on in high-profile matches.

                        And while his playstyle is not objectively wrong, I do think that James takes it too far.
                        The spirit of the game always had this non-competitive air to it.

                        IF this continues, and people with a more aggressive playstyle do turn up, the game of Jeopardy will have to adapt and disallow overly competitive play or succumb to the pressures of the professional board players.

                          I would like to see James go up against an AI player like Watson in a for charity game.

                                                    Wouldn't someone be able to beat him by AVOIDING Daily Doubles until near the end of the board? Then wagering it all (And, naturally, getting the Question right)?

                                                                                      I can't believe it took me 35 years for someone to figure out the best strategy to win at Jeopardy! I've always loved watching Jeopardy if I happen to be home and it's on iWatch now I set the damn DVR so I don't miss 1 episode! James is so thrilling and it was a blast watching him on his run!

                                                                                        I personally like James as a person and as a game player. It’s great to see fierce competition but I think some of it comes through luck, and that’s where the daily double hunt falls into play. You could play like James, however you have to be extremely smart and lucky otherwise you’ll be overtaken. I also personally don’t think it’s fair that he is in the ToC. It would be pretty much a shoe in for him to win and would be unfair to the other contestants.
