    Yes, I love those categories. I'm not a big ballet fan, but I know the genre because of the music.

    Amazing championship. James 58/64, Emma 32/32 for the two games. When they met earlier, neither missed a question. I can't match those numbers with a pause button and Google.

    If I have the numbers right she is 167/174 for all her appearances, including 8/8 on daily doubles and 6/8 on final jeopardies. Unbelievable.

    Unfortunately she ran into the GOAT. Fortunately she will be back in some special tournament TBD.

    That was a very enjoyable contest. Two of my favorite contestants. Was rooting for both of them to perform really well, and for a reasonably close game, which it pretty much was.

    Their 'right' rates are similar 96.7% for JH and 95.3% for EB, but where JH gets the job done is his ability to time the buzzer:
    57% first to her 35%.

    Friday's game should silence the naysayers who claimed Emma's regular season victory was a fluke, or that she did not belong in the Tournament of Champions because she won too few games.

    Based on individual games, she has now beaten James 2 out of 3 times.

    I'd put her 4th in the GOAT rankings

    1. James
    2. Brad Rutter
    3. Ken Jennings
    4. Emma

    And he knows it. Here's his tweet.


    @James_Holzhauer

    Contestants who have outscored me in an episode of
    @Jeopardy
    :

    #JeopardyEmma: 2 of 3 matchups
    Everyone else: 0 of 71 matchups

    Emma is $10,000 ahead of me in cumulative score across three games.
