I'll be the first to admit that wagering would be a topic for serious review, but today seemed like an example of a not very complicated scenario. I just wonder what Zoey or Alain were thinking of in terms of strategy with their wagers.
I wonder at what point (if ever) did Alain think to himself, "Hmmmmm, I could have won that game if I had wagered small!" And I wonder how hard he dope-slapped himself for failing to study wagering strategy 101. Oh well.
You're right. Both Alain and Zoey seemed to pick random amounts.
Meanwhile I got Limburger and Liverwurst for the stinkiest Lach Trash ever) plus IBM Selectric. (once again, being of a certain age...)
For FJ I thought for a nanosecond of Antony & Cleopatra but very quickly found Troilus and Cressida for another game won from the imaginary fourth podium. This game had some nice promise but the ending was just sad.
