Rerun of Poker Pro Alex Jacob on Jeopardy Stirs Up Twitter

Alex Jacob Poker Jeopardy


  • Reruns highlighting former poker pro @whoisalexjacob, on Jeopardy got Twitter abuzz this week.

Last April, former poker pro, Alex Jacob went on an absolute tear playing the popular game show Jeopardy. Jacob, used a unique game theory inspired strategy to agitate and confuse his opponents on his way to winning over $150,000 during his seven-show run. Jacob then went on to win the 2015 Jeopardy Tournament of Champions for $250,000.

Old episodes of the show aired again this week and caught the attention of many on twitter. The social media attention spurred Twitter editors to create a special "Twitter Moment" titled "I'll take Savage Jeopardy Answers for $500, Alex." The Twittersphere seemed most amused by Jacob's Final Jeopardy answer, where he simply risked nothing and put in an answer of "Who is, Good Game Guys," since he had already locked in the win.

Check out the highlights below.
