There is a contestant on the television show called Jeopardy that is making amazing wins each night. He is a professional sports bettor. He is averaging over $50,000 per game in wins and I believe the average for Ken Jennings who won 70 games in a row was about $30,000 + or -? This new guy whose first name is James is setting records that are simply amazing. He already has some records of his own and broke the most won in one day by winning $110,000 in one day.
I am thinking he must have a photographic memory and has studied a book containing the questions and answers of the past that have been used in Jeopardy programs???

Amazing Jeopardy Contestant Is A Professional Sports Bettor

It has been impressive to watch for sure. It's a combo of knowing the answer and timing the buzzer not just straight knowledge of subjects. I'm a fan though even if he wasn't a bettor. I'm a pretty solid couch Jeopardy player but he's been leaving me in the dust this week. I've been watching during dinner time for years. I have 43 years of useless knowledge stored up.
There is an article on ESPN about him and his group of friends. He's super intelligent and practices trivia often and also has some unique ways to retain info on subjects he has trouble with. No photographic memory though.
What is interesting is that these are episodes from February. So only a handful of people know how long his run lasts at this point. It could in theory be going on still, the show is in hiatus right now.
I saw him break the one million dollars win mark and now he is at one and one quarter of a million dollars with 17 wins. When he makes it to game 21 he will have a new record again beating Julia Collins who made it to 20 games.

I just hope they do not change the rules to cap the amount of money that can be won or the amount of games a person can win.
