Jeopardy!’s James Holzhauer will get rematch with Chicago’s Emma Boettcher in the Tournament of Champions Finals

Jeopardy! beast James Holzhauer won his semifinal match last night in the Tournament of Champions.  That means he’s in the finals on Thursday and Friday and guess who’s going to be there waiting for him…

Emma Boettcher, the 27-year-old Chicago librarian who ended his 32-game winning streak five months ago will take on Holzhauer once again!  The third contestant will be decided in tonight’s last semifinal matchup.

The winner of the Tournament of Champions gets $250,000.  Second place earns $100,000, and third is worth 50-grand.  The winner will also get bragging rights and those may be worth more than first prize to the contestants!
