Anyone following this guy? He’s shattering all of the records. Three highest single day winnings in show history, all above $100k.

Guy is unbelievable. 

He is a pro sports bettor.

Previous 1 game record was 77K and it stood for years. 

Makes it look too easy.

Unstoppable....?

He will make a mistake on one of the daily doubles and that will be an eventual downfall.

The guys is great on the buzzer, and the knowledge is incredible

By the end of the “week” people start figuring it out. 

Today was a good game.  It’s become our dinner watching show the last two weeks.

Yeah we watch him every night. He knows his sh*t about a ton of different subjects. Older guy nearly knocked him off the other nite losing by only $18 bucks I think.  The wife and I just find him a little "odd".

I know it's usually over after 5 questions when he's up by $5,000 to zip.

Most correct. Newbies are a little timid/ nervous at first which is understandable. He quickly nails the $1000 questions and the newbies are in a $5K hole right out the box. The other night he blew the 1st question and he was in a $1K hole. We were shocked. Of course it didn't last long.

First saw him on a game show my family and I watch called “The Chase.” It puts three people up against Oxford trained mathematics professor and quizzing champion Marck Lambert aka The Beast

James team obviously beat him with James answering close to 90% questions by himself. Guy is beyond brilliant and yes his speed buzzingng  was one of the craziest things about him. He has almost instant recall

Oh, that boy is off all right, but he also has incredible, instantaneous recall and is ridiculous on the buzzer. Trivia/knowledge-wise I can usually hang with him (as can most jeopardy contestants), but his recall has zero lag time and he is savant-like with the puzzle categories (anagrams, etc). Its almost a waste that hes using his gifts in such a crap pursuit as "sports gambler". I bet some think tanks like Rand will be giving him a call....

The old guy was really good and clearly understood how to play him, but was not as quick on the buzzer. 

 

Its going to be a hell of a player that knocks him off.

To be fair every thing they need to teach is in the syllabus.

They dont need to be rocket scientists.

The best teachers are motivators and confidence builders.

I am really rooting for Holzhauer to pass Jennings however I doubt he would be any good as a teacher.

3 Teachers didn't know the name of NATOs adversarial organization during the Cold War. It made me sad. 

"This organization was created at the height of the Cold War in response to the NATO Alliance in 1955"

 

Two answered "The USSR"...

But if they raised the pay and minimum qualifications, most of the people teaching would have to work at McDonalds...so... lol

My kids ask me how we survived without google to answer question and give directions.  When they found out google owned YouTube also heads exploded.
