James Holzhauer will never be as loved or liked as Ken Jennings is. My God, Alex Trebek just asked Ken to join him as a co-narrator in the audio portion of his new book called "The Answer Is" which comes out July 21st. He accepted. https://apnews.com/PR%20Newswire/a54dfbf7753aeabefa0d66cfc301e47a

He could be a industry plant to have people think a certain way. If more people play like him in the future, the higher the risk of them losing more. He could be there to make the show more interesting and change the statistical chances of winning or losing.

This man is a genius and it’s really interesting to see all the technicalities in his play styles. To answer the last question you asked at the end: no. I think this is only making jeopardy better, not ruining it, because it’s bringing a whole knew play style to the table. The game will just get more interesting and more of a test of skill and strategy instead of a test of pure knowledge

The only thing I would add to James’ strategy is clear the first and maybe second row of clues first since they have low odds of containing the daily doubles. This will give you more money for when you do find the daily doubles.

People said that because of his final wager but it was mathematically the right thing to do. I doubt a guy that's trying to lose makes a wager that increases his chances of winning.

He didn't break it. Give it another year or so and if he tried again he wouldn't be so dominate because by then everyone will be using the system. When everyone uses it, its a level playing field. Basically if someone else is using the same tactic, who is controlling the board?

The problem isn't the strategy alone. Strategy is one thing, but you need to also have a vast knowledge about sometimes ridiculously niche things.

I honestly don't like this fast-paced, "aggressive" playstyle. Jeopardy is a nice, fairly relaxed game, not like most other game shows where time pressure is always a major factor. I feel like this kind of ruins its charm somewhat, and it doesn't suit the friendly, conversational atmosphere that Alex has created
