James played impeccably, but it was the first time he had gone against two players of quality. In previous games he had the luxury of going against at least one totally inferior player. And, his inability to find either of the daily doubles in the second round contributed to his demise. If he gets one of those, he wins. Just poor luck. Still, he's likely the best player ever to grace the Jeopardy stage. Only Ken Jennings can compete and I think Ken will have his hands full when they meet at some point in the future. Just hope Alex is around to moderate such a gargantuan match. Maybe add Buzzy or one of the other recent champions to the mix. I would bet on James, even with juice.
