Three of Jeopardy’s best players of all time faced off in a “Greatest of All Time” tournament, also referred to as the Jeopardy GOAT tournament. James Holzhauer, Ken Jennings, and Brad Rutter had all made Jeopardy history in the past, and starting on January 7, they faced off to prove who was truly

 the “GOAT.” 

The tournament was set to last no more than two weeks,although it ended up only lasting four days, with one winner each night. However, each night the players played two games, and the winner was determined based on the highest cumulative score. The tournament winner was set to win a million dollars, with the two other contestants winning 250 thousand dollars. 

It started a close first two games between Jennings and Holzhauer, each winning one each. However, the next two nights both went to Jennings, who was quickly, and rightfully, crowned the winner.
