I feel he wanted to lose by getting so little on the final question.  He know the Liberian was in front money wise, yet he only wagered a little over 1000+.  Feels odd to me.

 Nope.  He is a better and his bet although on its face seems odd is really smart, and he leaves with most of his winnings.  Here is an article that explains the strategy.  https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/06/why-james-holzhauers-small-final-jeopardy-bet-made-total-sense

That's a very good explanation @Shawnie .  Thanks for posting this.  I didn't think he lost on purpose.
