Re: Monday, December 11, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The only way Charlie can win is if LaKedra gets Final incorrect. Assuming she wagers to cover Charlie, which she did, an incorrect response would bring her score down to 23000-1801 = $21,199. Charlie must then wager to get to at least $21,200...equates to an $8800 wager (12,400 + 8,800). Moreover, ...

Re: TD 360 - Taylor Made (Final results)

Thanks for running this. For the record, this was my first TD participation. Enough questions hit me in my wheelhouse that I was able to overcome my negative feelings towards these types of quizzes. For the record, this bias has nothing to do with the questions or those who write them. Many are pret...

I think it depends on how badly one wants to go to Hawaii, since you are getting a trip for the amount of the tax. If you have no interest in going, sure, turn it down and save the tax. Just like you could turn down the car. A vehicle is an easy asset to sell. Sign the paperwork, take possession of...

Re: Friday, December 8, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Kyle skrewed the pooch on his final wager. If Laura wagered zero, he would have lost by a buck on a TS. Thinking Venusian, he should have trimmed it to 3000 and clinched a tie-breaker in the unlikely event Ben wagered zero. He needed to bet exactly 6600 and trust his fate to a tie-breaker if he wan...

. In terms of study for an appearance (or just the appearance of appearing), wouldn't the list of Time Magazine man/person of the year be a list to memorize? If Academy Award winners by year is worth knowing, so would this. And in terms of knowledge that can make a difference in your thinking, I'd ...

That was an awesome major league ass kicking! We should not be surprised Bobby plays Wheel in an optimal way unlike most contestants. Although I didn't think any types of gourmet cupcakes were available in his neck of the woods. :lol: And hopefully he gets some good tax advice on the non-cash winnin...

Use RRR = 16%, WWW = 20%, WRW = 13%, RWW = 14%, RWR = 12%, RRW = 10%, WWR = 8%, WRR = 7%, the considered player in the lead is the first player. These numbers are from season 32 and season 33 FJ stats by score and rounded to the nearest number. In the case of betting $0, the chance that one of your...

Re: Thursday, December 7, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't get Joe's strategy on that DD - at that point in the game, you have to go all in just to have a chance to win. Which, we debate DD strategy all the time and I'm in the camp that says that it's hard to judge how someone standing there feels about a clue, but when you're almost $10,000 behind...

Was thinking there should be a dedicated thread on this. If mods feel otherwise move it to the education thread I suppose.

Re: Wednesday, December 6, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Kyle's DD find in the J! round could have saved him a bunch of worry at the end of the game. He was doing very well at that point and could have easily risked another $1000. I was telling him to go all in. You either wager it all or $5 here. And considering it was a bottom row clue, you should prob...

Re: Monday, December 4, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Kyle's FJ! wager was spot on. I'm not sure I get Alice's wager. The first cut at her wager says to wager less than 2800 to stay ahead of Kyle on a double neg. Staying ahead of a double by Lisa requires risking at least 6400. So she has to decide if she's going for the win on a triple stumper or goi...

Re: Friday, December 1, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I would have wagered differently than Tal at that last daily double. The scores were 22,000/15,200/3,800 or something close to it and he opted to wager 2,000 only. I'd recommend wagering about 9,000 or 10,000. He bet 2,000 to maintain his lead no matter what but that doesn't maximize his chance to ...

Re: Thursday, November 30, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wasn't overly thrilled with the BMS on National League when compared to the other clues. In DJ full categories were left more than once with at least one uncovered DD and they kept starting at the top. It was possible that Lily could have gained an additional $1k in FJ, her wager however made that i...

This would be why Kara, who does what the contestant coordinators ask her to do (which boardies know is extremely important) got picked to go on the show and Golf, who explicitly says he won’t, hasn’t. Something I had typed up in my previous post but took it out because it wasn't relevant, now you ...

Marcus left an obvious $1000 on the table on the first DD. In DJ, with two full categories and two DD's remaining, Caity goes to the top of a category. Sigh. Then Marcus does the same thing with one full category remaining. Sigh. During every orientation, contestants are cautioned that NOT starting...

While it was obvious what they wanted, people don't really refer to Roger Maltbie as "The Golf Whisperer". "Course whisperer." It's "The Course Whisperer" that you wish to allege people don't really refer to Roger Maltbie as. No. He is definitely not referred to as "The Golf Whisperer". Furthermore...

Re: Thursday, November 23, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So, this is something I've never understood ... the games are chosen randomly before the match so as not to give a particular contestant an advantage. So how do they ensure that an FJ like this airs exactly on Thanksgiving? It does seem to go against what we know about standards and practices, but ...
