Even (or maybe especially) if you're not the best, you should go big

Trailing players who hit a Daily Double really have to go big. Unfortunately, conservative wagering is a bit of a Jeopardy! epidemic. It's getting better for Final because players seem a bit better prepared these days for Final Jeopardy! wagering, but it's still pretty bad with Daily Doubles.

There are two possible ways for James to lose.

1. A player gets those Daily Doubles before he does. Good luck with that, though. He's great on the buzzer.

2. Hope he misses a crucial, big-bet Daily Double.

In either scenario, a competitor will have to play a solid enough game to have more than half of James' total going into Final, then nail Final while James misses.
