    After seeningOgi Ogas's performence yesterday, I think he is going to win. No one has dominated in teh math round quite like he did. 4-4. PERFECT! But of course, he has to play No.1 seed Brad Rutter next!

    Yeh, I was thinking along those lines. But if he beats Brad, he'll then be the favorite. All of them have been a bit shaky in the numbers round, except Ogi.

    yea. I have always liked John Carpenter, ever since 2000, when he won the million. I hope he and Ogi make it to the championship.

    I really have no idea. After seeing some of the upsets that have happened at this point, it truly could be anyone's game. At this point, I'm just sitting back and enjoying the show. This is one awesome series and looks like a heck of a challenge for the contestants. Great program.

    Well, John Capenter was upset. I don't think Michelle Kitt will beat Ken Jennings, though. It looks like Ogi vs. Ken.

    what a matchup. Ogi is gonna win it all. Ken had some minor problems with each person he played, but Ogi has played perfectly.

    John Carpenter lost by just 10 seconds and he had 2 switches left while Kit had none, so partially he didn't use those to well. Bt he just lost by a little.

    It'll probably be Ken and Ogi in the finals. They've been more consistant, but we'll see.

    what a matchup. I think the seeds shouldn't go by money, but by smartness.

    Both Ogas and Jennings were impressive in the semi-finals, but Ken was absolutely amazing with a perfect result. Ogas is quite cocky, but I still love him. Both of them are awesome players --- I think it's going to be a phenomenal final match. BTW, are Kitt and Legler going to doing a playoff for third place? I was wondering about that, because it seems like, if not, then it's only going to be a half-hour show next week.

    No third place playoff. It's going to have one extra round, plus interviews, highlights, etc.

    Well, congrats to Ken Jennings. He really earned it. That Contemporary Knowledge round was absolutely brutal for Ogi. But it was I think right around the middle of the math round that I started to become concerned about Ogi's chances. There were some questions that it seemed to me like he should have been answering a lot faster and he actually passed on a couple of questions for the first time in that round.
