Ultimately, there isn't much you can do to win Jeopardy! other than know a lot of stuff and be quick on the buzzer. But everything you can do, Arthur Chu is doing!
The 4-day champ uses a game play style engineered to give him an edge - one that doesn't sit well with a lot of the show's fans!
Arthur uses a strategy called the "Forrest Bounce" which consists of jumping from category to category so the other players can't get used to the themes. It works especially well on more gimmicky categories like spelling and Before & After.
He also picks higher dollar values first, giving him a better chance of finding the Daily Doubles - and more importantly not leaving any for the other contestants!
This play style has garnered him both praise and vitriol from viewers! And oh yeah, over $100,000 in winnings and counting!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to hear what he has to say about his winning strategy!
