I have to say I am not the biggest fan of the show, I watch it from time to time but I am a Wheel of Fortune guy but when I got wind of this tournament I knew I had to watch to see these three champions of the game use their style to win the grand prize of 1 million dollars, who would win I thought because each person held records in the game show history. Brad Rutter was a champ nearly twenty years ago when a champ could only go a week on the show but when the tournaments came around he showed up and won the big bucks. Then you had Ken Jennings who has the longest winning streak in the show history but always would come in second in certain tournaments after that long streak but then you had James Holzhauer who set record wit his gambling style and playing the numbers, which helped him set the single game record, so when you put those three together who would come out at the G.O.A.T.
The games played pretty much how we thought it would be. Truth be told brad no doubt was the weakest of the three and it showed badly for him. Brad luck seemed to run out before the tournament even began so in the end it was going to come down to James and Ken and that battle was epic. James’ game was numbers, he would start high to get those daily doubles and gamble by risky is it all, he might have been very lucky with his answers and smart with picking his spots. However he was going against Ken who nearly beat a machine that was programed to win. Ken didn’t need luck he was smart though he never took it for guaranteed which might be his charm. Ken had to be the favorite no matter what. Match one went to him but barely James hit his spots and lost by only two hundred points but he finished strong, Match 2 went to James then the rest was all Ken who took home a million dollars and with that win seals the deal that Ken Jennings is the Jeopardy G.O.A.T but don’t feel sorry for Brad and James, they left with a cool 250K not bad for losing right? I am sure we haven’t seen the last of these three in the game. James I am sure will be back for the champions of champions his time is far from over and maybe one day we will get rematch.
