Re: Besides Ken, Brad, and James, what other contestants could be considered GOAT?

A player I believe deserves to be in the discussion is Bob Verini. If one Final Jeopardy! clue had gone differently in Super Jeopardy! and if Verini had responded correctly to either of his two Daily Doubles during the second day of the Million Dollar Masters finals, he would have been undefeated fo...

Re: TOC 2017 Semifinals and Finals: Predictions and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm not as confident as I originally was in my Austin Rogers prediction. The other two have been much more impressive thus far, but I'll stick with the eccentric bartender. I predict he takes the grand prize in a close match that goes down to clue number one hundred twenty-two. If he leads at that p...

Ha! Strangely, I thought of exactly that as I watched the show today.

Re: TOC 2017 Semifinals and Finals: Predictions and Discussion [SPOILERS]

What a first semifinal! I'm pleased that I correctly predicted seven of the nine semifinalists, but I'm not as sure who will win them. I'm tempted to take Andrew Pau in game one, but I'll ride with Austin Rogers, my original pick for the $250,000. Jason Sterlacci has as favorable a path to the final...

Re: 2017 ToC Quarter-Final Matches Revealed - Discussion

So on Tuesday you've got a bronze guy, Jason, defeating silver Tim Aten who sneaks in on a wildcard. Interesting. I think people didn't really get a chance to see how scary good Jason is since he was in the Teachers Tournament. I've followed him on Sporcle for a couple of years now and I don't ofte...

Does anyone here know if Ashley still wins the $1,000 for finishing third in her first game? Or does she give that up for the opportunity to play again?

Re: Tuesday, October 27, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Today's win would put Sean Anderson in the alternate spot for the Tournament of Champions if he's unable to come up with win number four tomorrow. One more win and he's likely to end up joining Matt Jackson, Alex Jacob, Greg Seroka, and the other recent Jeopardy! superstars in the field of fifteen. ...

Re: Friday, October 2, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Matt Jackson has played superbly through six games. He came within a correct response or two yesterday of being the first champion ever to win his first six regular season games by runaway. There are others who I think match up favorably against him for the Tournament of Champions, but it would be t...

Re: Friday, March 7, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The way Brad Rutter played today, I don't know if anyone could have beaten him. This reminded me of his performance in the third game of the Ultimate Tournament of Champions finals. To me, it speaks to Michael Dupee's status as one of the greatest to ever play the game that he almost weathered the s...

Re: Thursday, February 27, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't know that I've felt compelled to give a standing ovation in front of my television set more than two or three times in all the years I've watched Jeopardy! , but I found myself on my feet while applauding today at the conclusion of the Double Jeopardy! round. Arthur Chu may be the most consi...

Re: Tuesday, February 25, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Arthur Chu is the most memorable Jeopardy! player I've seen in some time, possibly since Colby Burnett. I love the way Arthur plays the game, always pressing his advantages and taking the game to his opponents, instead of passively letting the game come to him. I hope the winning streak continues, a...

That was a solid game for Woody Houchin. There may be a minor spoiler about a clue to follow in this post, if one hasn't already watched today's game. Old Yeller actually didn't win the Newbery Medal for 1957 ( Miracles on Maple Hill by Virginia Sorensen was the winner). I think the confusion stems ...

The reversal on the ante meridiem ruling actually probably ended up costing Bill Tolany a winning total that would have crossed the $20,000 mark. Nolan Martch won as much today for his second-place finish as he won yesterday becoming the new champion, an unusual occurrence I can't recall having ever...

Re: Friday, October 18, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Stuart Anderson's three-day total would currently put him in the alternate position for the next Tournament of champions. He played well, but I'm not sure even a win today would have been enough, ultimately, to make the ToC field. He probably would have needed a fifth win to qualify. Another aside: ...

Re: Wednesday, October 16, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Mat Ahn was performing well until he ran into some bad luck with that Daily Double! Wagering it all was a bold move that could have paid off many times over, but once he dipped below -$3,000, it was going to be hard for him to dig his way out of the red before the Final. Stuart Anderson was solid ag...
