Nice title defense by James in staying cool against a tough competitor. This week's pool of players had some heavy hitters in the mix.
Nice to see the challengers recognize what they’re up against and rise to the occasion. I imagine James could go on a long run if his future opponents revert to safe game play. I, for one, would go down kicking and screaming. Up against this week’s players, he doesn’t look unbeatable

This game was good for me. Few misses and some nice trash pick ups. My only miss on the big clues was Sarah Lawrence, but no way I’m betting more than $5 on COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES unless I’m forced to bet more
need to study up on that category, dude...one of my favourite categories...though i did miss that sarah lawrence school...never heard of it

I went with Vassar because I didn’t make the connection from Sadie to Sarah

Satish gave it a good run, but eventually had ran out of gas. James capitalized on that game and would have still won even if everybody had got FJ! wrong. But holy CRAP! That FJ! had me stumped for more than 30 seconds and I literally gave up trying to solve this one. (BTW, Rackme32, love that joke.)

James kind of held his own despite Satish getting 2 of the 3 DDs, but James picked up the 3rd DD to ensue him a wave of momentum moving ahead, but still won out in the end. Satish, I'm not sure if he saw James' first win, but betting $4,000 seemed safe, because the other half of the spectrum would have detailed if James were to make a comeback swing, and he did after picking up the 2nd DD in Double Jeopardy!

Otherwise, this had to be a thrilling game to watch, but on a tough FJ! category to boot.
