Another one bites the dust.

Arthur Chu, the 11-time Jeopardy champion who has made headlines around the world with his unique strategy, has finally lost. He collected $298,200 during his reign.

Chu, 30, was trailing in last place on Wednesday night, but had a fighting chance up until Final Jeopardy when he couldn’t correctly answer “He was the last male monarch who had previously been the Prince of Wales.” The answer was George VI but Chu guessed George II. Close but no cigar.

Chu gained worldwide fame with an unorthodox strategy: He skips around the board searching for daily doubles and sometimes bets nothing on them, happy to simply take them away from opponents. He plays to tie, not win, and speeds through rounds so fast that he occasionally cuts off host Alex Trebek. The strategy earned him critics, but many, many more fans.

Those who have been following Chu closely reacted online as his defeat closed in.

Not everyone was sad to see Chu’s exit.
