    Interestingly, that's my opinion of Holzhauer. :)

    His games are as interesting to me as Watson's are to you.

    This has an interesting format. They will be playing up to a maximum of 7 "matches". Each match will be two regular games played back-to-back with the winner being the person with the highest total in the two games (similar to how they do the finals of the Tournaments).

    The overall winner will be the first one to win three matches. The winner will take home a million dollars and the other two players will each get a quarter million.

    Match 1 will air on Tuesday, January 7. Matches 2-4 will air over the next three nights. The final three matches (if necessary) will air the following Tuesday through Thursday.


    If Holzhauer wins, he'll just pass Jennings on the all-time money list. No matter who wins, Rutter will remain the top total money winner.

    So a match is 2 regular games, but will air over 1 day?

    Yes, each episode will be one hour long (8-9pm ET/PT) and feature two games/one match. At least, that's how I understand it.

    After watching the tournament of champions with James where he plays so fast, yesterday's game seemed to be going in slooow motion. I actually had a chance to think of the answers before the contestants rang in. That one day in the tournament with the three part "before and after" type category, I was amazed at how quickly James could do those. Maybe he reads ahead of Alex and has more time to process. I find myself having to read a bit slower to match Alex's speed when I'm looking at the screen, but quite often I'm not even looking at the screen and just going by Alex's reading of the clue. Them jumping around in categories while talking fast trips me up a lot when I'm not looking at the screen too. I'll be trying to think of a ten-letter answer then realize they're not even in that category anymore! Guess I won't be trying out anytime soon.

    The jumping around trips them up sometimes too. I don't remember which game, but James forgot the answer needed to start with an "R".

    dang, I was going to say the same thing. You beat me to it. If they're really going for champions, Watson should be included!!!

    That's like saying it would be okay to use robots in the Super Bowl.

    If they had ever included them, then yes.

    The games featuring Watson were a means of showcasing IBM's tech. The whole thing was their idea. Maybe when IBM builds an android that can walk out on stage and compete autonomously, we can revisit the man vs machine idea.

    And before jeopardy included Watson there had been no computers.

    yes, but they DID include Watson, and "he" stomped them.

    yes, I know it was a special event.. and I realize this is too.. so I'm not 100% seriously saying they should put Watson in.. but it would have been cool to do a 4 way tourney including Watson.
