After I read it here, I googled and watched the video, looks real enough. I hope it is true, his smugness was getting to be too much.

You put "Spoiler Alert" in the title. What else could it mean other than he loses? What satisfaction is gained by ruining the lost suspense others might enjoy by finding out the outcome in real time. What a selfish act.

All things must pass....and he fell only 60k short of passing Ken Jennings total. It was fun, and he was a good sport in defeat.

I just heard on the news that Jeopardy champs do not get paid until 6 months after their final appearance. How true that is, I have no idea.

She beat him at his own game. She got the daily doubles in Double Jeopardy and bet big, and held the lead going into Final Jeopardy. Then the Final Jeopardy clue was fairly easy, and she got it right.

He also got it right, but even if he had bet everything he had, she would've beat him by a dollar.

He knew he couldn't win if she answered correctly so he bet small to protect himself if he and she both got it wrong and middle guy got it right. It was actually a very smart bet.

It would take a perfect storm to beat him, and that's what happened:

1) He made most of his money each game on the daily doubles in double jeopardy, but she landed them both, bet big on one, and knew both answers.

2) She was an excellent player who could keep up with him.

3) The final jeopardy was rather easy- even I knew Christopher Marlowe was the answer- so he couldn't hope that he would know it and she wouldn't.

He fell only a game or so short of passing Ken Jennings. But he will be back periodically in the various Tournament of Champions, so he's not done yet.

But he did not know the question yet, only the topic, when he made his Final Jeopardy wager.

IMO, this was a wonderful shared experience - there aren't many of those these days without some significant downside.

Of course, but when you go into final jeopardy behind, you hope that you know the answer and your opponent misses it. But since all three got it right, it would qualify as a rather easy one.

There are nearly two full pages in today's NY Times about yesterday's game and a profile of Emma Boettcher. It's a tribute to Jeopardy that a game show garners so much attention. It's worth reading to see the laser focus Emma had getting on the show and preparing for it. And the result was one of the most historic wins in the show's history. I like a good story and this certainly is one.

Anyone want to hazard a guess as to how long she'll last?

...or does our 'spoiler' already know?

I agree. I read about some guy who was shouting avengers spoilers outside of a theater who got his ass kicked. I wouldn't complain if the guy who started this thread shared a similar fate.

How did she miss Woody Guthrie? Sheesh. She would have lost anyway, as the guy in the middle had a little more money going into the final. There's only one James Holzhauer.
