    Was impressed with his knowledge about some of the questions, though, where I had no clue what the answer was, and he spouted it right off.

    Did you read somewhere that this was on or just stumbled on to it?

    Yeah I as well was pretty shocked by that all in bet with the lead. My gf said she couldn't remember ever seeing a contestant do that before. And if you notice he was doing the stall technique once he had the lead too.

    I always knew the kid was brilliant. Double major from Yale by 21. Crushing poker by age 22.

    I never asked him but I truly think he just got bored with poker. After his success he would only play big buy in 10k+ plus tourneys in the region and the wsop.

    I sent him a text a few hours ago after I watched the episodes. It was funny, I told him it was amazing/hilarous watching him play and asked him not to give me any spoilers about how he ends up.
    He did bring himself to double the 2nd place guy when Final Jeopardy came around, clinching it for him.

    This allowed him to bet $0 on what ended up being a tough quesiton (which he apparently didn't know), and if he didn't have such a lead, he would have lost, as the 2nd place guy got it right and bet most of his money.

    The key to jeopardy is to win in a runaway and not have to worry about final jeopardy. if you see a category you like and can solidify your chances at a runaway why not? If he misses it's not like he's lost the game either.

    The biggest blunder I see over and over for years is this.

    You get to final jeopardy with the score

    Contestant A 16K
    Contestant B 15K
    Contestant C 5k


    Contestant A almost always will bet 14001

    Contestant B usually bets 13000. So if they both miss he finishes a dollar higher.

    Contestant C. Fuck my life contestant C almost always does it wrong. C's only prayer is for a final to stump all three. (Happens all the time)

    I've watched this scenario play itself out too many times to even count.

    I've witnessed contestant C correctly wager nothing in this spot maybe five times ever.

    If C's ever started to wager properly you would probably start to see B's wagering nothing. Especially if they saw a dog shit category that he/she felt suited neither them or the leader.

    I haven't watched jeopardy in years but the new style of hopping around the board is not only annoying for the competitors but also for me watching.

    NO ONE. AND I REPEAT NO ONE did it that way when I used to watch religiously.

    They either need to completely randomize daily doubles into all the dollar figures or just plain only allow a top to bottom of the category picking style.

    I can't believe hard ass Alex stands for that.

    It also had a couple other modified names but that was the best.

    That's the strategy Arthur Chu was infamous for using. A lot of people were pissed off about it, but how can you blame the guy for playing optimally with money on the line?



    I agree that it's annoying, but I don't like either of your solutions. I think Daily Doubles are bullshit and should just be done away with. It's a huge advantage to whoever lucks into one.

    Weird sidenote: apparently Chu is now a radical misandrist SJW.

    Currency traders just lived through a period similar to the poker boom or the dot com bubble. It was an epic run where the trend was your friend. You didn't have to be a genius to make bank - and it sounds like this kid is so....

    The dollar, as an example, ran to near historic highs. Usually traders spend their days trying to nibble little moves. The moves recently have been fucking epic. The traders used to say "I made a few pips." Now... dear god.

    Drexel, if you get a chance to chat with Alex - don't ask him how he did but rather if he has any crazy currency stories.

    Work the term "pip" into the conversation. It'll get a chuckle coming from you.

    LOL those stupid video categories chew so much clock. I'm pretty Alex was just picking them to stall again.

    Jeopardy has Alex Jacob listed as a poker pro/currency trader from N.Y.
    He's been doing well on Jeopardy and has gotten very lucky at times, easy questions + bad opponents.

    What are the odds that Micon goes to the WSOP this year?

    She isn't a bitch. She used to post on NWP and got into it with some old school posters who thrashed her pretty hard. As I mentioned in my prior post, she was like 21-22 years old at the time. Just a baby and had no idea what NWP was. Most people here don't. This place is like a bunch of old ladies peacefully playing penny Mahjong compared to that place.

    Even I got destroyed the first couple of years, like all newcomers did. People paid mods to ban users, change there avatars etc.

    When the 10,000 member joined, he was immediately ip banned lol just because.

    The minister of bitcoin towards the end of NWP created a place called the Carter (RIP). It was like a prison/asylum for the crazy. Some people were only allowed to post in the Carter. Some people like that retard razz virgin no social skills scottyno would come down below to the Carter and would get raped by the inmates.

    True story but even to this day no explanation how....so fucking legendary...Cmoney didn't like the formation of the Carter and wanted everyone to be back in one basic forum so he hacked into NWP and merged the carter back into shooting off (nwp's version of flying stupidity).

    No idea seriously how he did it. Maybe Druff or someone back then knows how he did it. But that was that. The Carter was never again.


    And fuck sonatine, help me out. I do not mean to disrespect. Its actual proper name was something like the James L Carter experience lol or something like that.

    I always liked her. She was in VIP and she didn't go off on people like she did in 'The Carter'.

    Am I the only one who thought by the thread title this guys first name was Jacob?
    It's hilarious that we as a society think everyone can be a dr, a lawyer, an engineer. Some people are just fucking stupid. Why can't we just accept that?

    Completely agree Split. Detest the show. Seen it only a handful of times. I did tune in tonight.

    Was chatting with others who watch religiously and they agree the kid plays like no one else.

    Great story.
