Re: Thursday, July 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

But IMO, bad move to admit a weakness in any category to your incoming opponents. It is almost impossible that this could be consequential. There is only one match left in the taping day - it is guaranteed they will not go there in FJ again the next day. By next week, all new contestants, clueless ...

This game is a draw for the Intermediate Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "small." --Bob $13,000 out of $13,000 is big in my book. Not a Shore's Conjecture game, either, unless I'm misreading the flowchart (EJ didn't have Debbie locked out). You're both right. I had different...

Re: A Shore's Conjecture taxonomy

By popular (all right, one person's) request: A game satisfies the conditions of Shore's Conjecture if: (a) it is not a crush, and (b) the second-place player can make a wager that is large enough to pass the leader's pre-Final score while still small enough to keep the third-place player locked ou...

Messages will return to Final

I know that during James's run TPTB changed the rules to prevent people from using Final to send greetings or messages. The ruling is that any such message will now be considered part of the contestant's response (which likely will make the response incorrect). There's an easy workaround. Write your...

Re: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As good as James outplayed his opponents a route to defeat could be as simple as a miss on DD2 and an opponent in five figures finding and converting DD3 to have the lead for the FJ! round. It was all reasonably possible today. Since all of these shows were taped in February (or whenever) how aware...

Does this make James 23 for 24 on Final Jeopardy!? To me that may be more impressive than his average winnings per game. --Bob

Correct response is missing from Final Jeopardy!. And as noted above, James's average (mean) win now exceeds the previous one-day record. --Bob

Re: Friday, May 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If my mental arithmetic is correct (I'm too lazy to track down a calculator), if James wins his next game with at least $80,000, he'll bring his average over the previous record of $77,000. --Bob

I had a post earlier and had to delete it...I really bungled it trying to work on a few things at once and respond to this.
