Buster Douglas has knocked out Mike Tyson! 

One game after beating Ken Jennings, Nancy Zerg lost in a match in which she was effectively locked out of Final Jeopardy, having less than half the score of the winner.

Nancy was not quicker on the buzzer than Ken, and she did not have a greater breadth of knowledge than Ken. She won because Ken got stung on a couple difficult Daily Doubles and because she bested Ken in Final Jeopardy.

Ken's a pretty quick thinker (go to this bulletin board and start talking trash about him if you don't believe me), and he's stated that a lot of times he relies on indirect cluage to get correct answers, so it's a bit surprising that he didn't answer Final Jeopardy correctly. Sigh.
