  1. To those who think James threw the game away, he really didn't. He was in second place by a small margin and knowing it wouldn't be enough to catch up, he wagered low to maintain his second place against Jay and have it wagered enough to cover Emma had she been incorrect, which of course she wasn't. But the truth is people, even if James wagered everything he had in his bank, Emma would still have defeated him by just $1. As real as that is, it's also real of the game, which is one of the most impressive gameplays by three Jeopardy! contestants in a long while with only one answer missed, so you have to tip your hat to all three of them

  2. Ken jennings send out acouple of hitman to stop jamea from taking the record. The guy in the middle was cock blocking and in the way, although he did answer all his responses except for one correctly.

  3. I didn't watch the streak and gain affection for James the way that I did Ken Jennings years ago. This match was the first that I watched, and in my unbiased view, the girl was a very strong opponent (third placed guy wasn't too bad either). This wasn't a Nancy Zerg situation, where he was beaten in a flukey way. Emma was good, and would be considered a worthy champion if hysteria hadn't been built around James. Good luck to her. I hope she has a good run of her own.

  4. A librarian from Chicago did not only unseated James Holzhauer. She dethroned him and it goes to show that you don't have to be a sports gambler to Jeopardy. James Holzhauer's 32-game streak comes to an end and I can breathe a sigh of relief that it was all over.

  5. Wow! I can't believe it's really over. I really wanted James to pass Ken Jennings total earnings. He was only $58,484 away! All he needed was to win like 2 more matches. I'd love to see James and Ken do a charity match versus each other. All winnings go to the charity of their choice.
