But then toward the end of DJ, she got cocky. With the score $19,800, $14,000, $6,200 (she was in the lead), she got the last DD and bet $12,000 and lost, putting her way behind with only a couple clues left.

But ultimately it didn't matter. The returning champ was the only one who got FJ right, and the cocky challenger finished in 3rd place because she bet everything, while the guy in 3rd place left himself $1.

The champion has gone into FJ losing every day for the past 4 days and has won every time. The challenger was trying to win before FJ. She took a gamble and lost, but I don't blame her for trying.

Very gutsy move. If I was confident of a category, I might have done the same. But probably not, my balls aren't brass like hers.

The champ is on an amazing streak. She's not flashy or cocky, but she really does have a good breadth of knowledge. And her ability to keep winning FJ is astounding. She's living the old adage, life is 90% luck and 90% timing. In her case, add in 90% smarts.

BTW, did anyone here get pepitas del oro?

It was a very gutsy move but those answers in the NBA Spanish names weren't written very well.

I saw oro and knew it meant gold and the only thing I could think of was Golden State Warriors. I didn't think pepitas meant warriors but that's all that came to mind.

The current champ, Alex Jacob, is a friend of my son. He knows him from poker. He at least was a professional poker player. I had no idea he was currently a currency trader. I'll have to ask my son about that.

I don't think this was mentioned here before. Thanks to my son I discovered a blog where the writer discusses Final Jeopardy betting strategy from the current show. It's called The Final Wager. http://thefinalwager.co There is also some other good info there.

And he he mentions a pun in the categories that I didn't get.

The last two categories in the Jeopardy! round were NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS and DIE FLEDERMAUS. Or, if you prefer, DEFLATOR-MAUS. (Very funny, writers.)

Loved his fro in the WSOP

His final jeopary from day 2 (i believe) he motioned the "all-in" pushing of his chips when it came to him, he had such a big lead that he just bet $0 and put a thank you shout out on the card to his friends and family

There was another funny moment if you knew what to look for...

Alex's user name on JBoard is omgwheelhouse. On the compound word category, there was a triple stumper whose answer was "wheelhouse". The look on his face as he heard that... priceless.

He is an excellent player. His background, currency trader & poker player (same thing?), have taught him a great betting strategy. Combined with his voluminous knowledge (literature, science, history, you name it) has created a ToC player.

Really enjoy watching him play.

...and he was a JBoard regular under that user name for years before getting on the show (i.e., he didn't just recently sign up for the site and pick the name to "honor" that triple stumper).
