I'm not sure why it's a huge story - he would have lost anyway.
http://www.salon.com/2014/02/04/in_praise_of_arthur_chu_the_game_theory_nerd_who_broke_jeopardy/Speaking of Forrest, apparently the current champ, Arthur Chu, (well, I don't watch, so I don't know if he still is) is really aggressive on the "Forrest Bounce" (looking for the daily doubles) and the "Perfect Final" bet......
And is being roundly blasted by Jeopardy! fans, claiming that he's not following the spirit of the game. According to them, a contestant is supposed to row through the categories logically, from least hard to most hard, and be grateful when a DD is found, and bet the Final based on his confidence in the subject, and not maximize his chance of winning.
I was surprised they accepted "silver" instead of Ag.I was surprised they accepted Ag (rather than Silver) for the Final Jeopardy answer on Wednesday's show. Did that seem odd to anyone else?
I think they meant the show's decades. So 83 to 93, 93-03, 03-13.Anyone else find the battle of the decades this week had very difficult questions ? Also, contestants were supposed to be from shows in the 90's and 2 this week were from 2003. Sometimes they just announce the season, not the year. I found the same with the 80's, some were from the '90's. What's up with that ?
I TiVo it.This discussion of the last episode needs a reset on the numbers. I had watched it, I thought I had understood the errors as they happened in the final betting, but these messages have me all confused. Damned if I'm going to find a copy and watch the end again!
And if he got them right he would have won. It's how he became the highest one day winner.I thought it was great! As I expected it came down to Brad and Ken. Actually Roger could have won if he wouldn't have gotten all those Daily Double questions wrong. It's hard to believe Ken missed that question about the Secretaries of State but I also don't think he'd throw a million dollars away.
Close game yesterday! Glad Julia was able to pull out the win.
