Jeopardy guy


Recommended Posts


This guy's background as a professional sports bettor piqued my interest. I'm always intrigued by individuals who are playing the same "game" (both literally and metaphorically) and rise to the top as an extreme outlier. Somehow they see and or think about things differently. When he discusses his Jeopardy and sports betting strategy, I get a strong whiff of much of what I read in Nate Silver's book (The Signal & the Noise) and Ed Thorp's autobiography. In other words, Bayes theorem and Kelly forumla. I doubt this guy literally applies either but I'm always amazed how some people just naturally think and bet in this manner (and do so with great success).
