Subject: OT: Someone please explain the ending of the GOAT Tournament which Ken Jennings won


Author:
I could not understand why Jennings got the Game 2 Final Jeopardy correct ("Iago") but bet ZERO. Didn't that leave the door open for James?

James's answer of Horatio was wrong and he bet $44000. If he had been right, would he then have won Match 4?

I can't figure out what Jennings gained by betting ZERO. though he did win. Wasn't it possible for Jennings to bet enough money and, if Correct, to shut James out?

Please explain someone. What am I missing?

Thanks!

Ken correctly assumed that James was going to bet everything (NT)And if James did bet everything, the only way Ken could've won is if James got FJ wrongWednesday, January 15, 04:06:36am
