When he played chess for the first time, Kjorgberg didn’t know the rules.
Now he’s playing the game again, and this time, the results are not going his way.
But he’s confident.
“I don’t think I can play better than Alex Tremblay,” Kjogdan told reporters.
But, as he puts it, “I think he could beat me.”
Kjornbjerg lost to Trebek, the winner of the second round, in the final to earn the right to compete in the second Jeopardys.
In the finals, Kjerstin Rysgaard beat fellow chess pro Janne Bjørck and won $2,000.
Trebek defeated the second-place finisher.
Rysgaard was a big star when she played for Sweden’s National Chess Team, but her chess career was cut short by her own personal tragedy.
When she was 19, her family was robbed and she lost the support of her father, who was paralyzed.
After losing the first round of the tournament, Trebek was so upset he left the house and returned to Sweden to find her father and two of his sisters.
He was eventually able to reunite with his mother and three of his siblings.
Trebek has since been in touch with Kjörg.
They’ve both been looking forward to playing again, Kjetil told reporters in an interview on Monday.
Kjetil said that the pair had talked before they made the decision.
“We are very close friends and we feel we should be competing for the title together,” Kjetill told AFP news agency.
“I’m confident we can do it.”
Kjetils father is an avid chess player, Kvarti said.
However, they both have a long way to go to get to the top.
They were both only 18 when they started playing chess, but Trebek and Kjorig are both over 50.
