Tonight’s the night for Match #4 of the Jeopardy! Greatest of All Time! Here’s tonight’s game recap (for Tuesday, January 14, 2020):
|Brad Rutter, currently on 0 wins
|Ken Jennings, currently on 2 wins
|James Holzhauer, currently on 1 win
This is currently a placeholder post which will be updated with Final Jeopardy! information and a game recap once it is known.
Preview: Ken is one win away from taking this tournament going into this absolutely crucial Game #4. Ken is running slightly better than James right now, and Brad may have some confidence after finally getting a pair of Daily Doubles at the end of Game #3. This game will definitely come down to the Daily Doubles and Final Jeopardy; the player who does the best on those will likely have the upper hand. With Ken on 2 wins, you might see James and Brad gang up (one player possibly laying off the buzzer if the other has a better chance of prolonging the tournament).
