Re: Monday, February 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

How in this universe is this a TS? These are J-class players, right? British, sci-fi, 1866, WECIB. Asimov, a Russian? Verne, a Frenchman? Clarke was probably the best guess of the bunch but the date disqualifies him. I'm sorry, but I am absolutely, as the Brits would say, gobsmacked that this is a ...

Re: Monday, February 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Once more, for the people in the back: Penguins can read, penguin just didn't agree with you. Nor do I, like Opus, I tend to believe he would have been more likely to ring in had the game been tighter. And judging by the look on his face when ruled incorrect, he was quite confident in his answer. R...

I don't know ... there's something cruel about asking the black contestant about an Afrikaans word (yes, I know the stacks are randomly assigned).
Does this really need to be mentioned? Especially when the phrase "THE black contestant" is used.....

I appeared on the #1 ranked show in 2000! Would like to think I could have answered this clue correctly under the lights. :lol:

I have no problem with that decision, though I'm not sure I would have done the same in his shoes. Can't play for big money if you can't get there first!
Can't play for big money if you miss a milestone question while leaving all LL's on the table either.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

There used to be at least a streak in the 40s every other year or so, but I don't remember any long ones recently. Pete Rose got to 44, that's the only streak of 40+ since Joltin' Joe. He obviously rushed on the state capital answer and it cost him. Thought the contestant used impeccable logic to f...

Jeff has several points in the game to revisit including DD1 when he left 600 on the table he could have used at the end.
Only cost him a minimum of $25401, no big deal. Would have been a pretty good hourly rate had he spent 60 minutes on wagering theory before taping.

Has anyone ever tried to bet $0 on a Daily Double before Alex told them off?
Yes. That's how I learned there was a $5 minimum.

There was a game (IIRC, and before the tie rule) where the leader had exactly double second when he hit a DD on the last clue in DJ. Now that was a crappy situation.

How will learning anything ever be fun? No one's ever, in this whole massive thread, ever given me a reason to retain ANY of this.

Not sure what that 2300 wager was meant to accomplish.
Moves ahead of the leader's standard wager by $99 if he answers correct while the leader misses. Poor logic in my opinion, but that was certainly the rationale.

Thanks to Falco(plus not having seen Amadeus), had I been behind the podium, I would have instantly written "The Magic Flute", spent the next 25 seconds staring smugly at the camera counting my money, only to have my jaw fall on the floor when ruled wrong.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Seeing people go for it is so much better than seeing people walking with $20,000. I emphatically disagree. Way too many people state "I came here with nothing so.....". Well that's just stupid. You have x dollars in the bank which cannot be taken away if you so choose. That is real money unlike du...

Yet how do you feel if you sit there having gotten FJ right from first place and yet you're going home? An optimal bet is only optimal if you know how others are going to bet. In this case, I don't see anything wrong with either bet. No. Just no. Please be sarcasm I'm not seeing the sign for. Nobod...

Shouldn't she assume Jonathan knows how to bet from second and therefore she's going to lose on a double stumper if she bets to cover? In that case she might as well go big or go home. Children's lit also seems like a category that someone could easily feel very strong in, so if she felt she was hi...

Jonathan - i don't want to win, here's a silly round number wager that will drastically reduce my winning chances. Mary Ann - Oh yeah? Well I don't want to win either. You think that's a poor wager? I'll show you a poor wager! Boardies without auditions - Let's pull all our hair out and get plastered.

I also hate it when a horrible wager gets rewarded. This. Such a simple situation and contestants still have no clue how to wager. Sort of like not taking the time to cash in a 5-figure lottery ticket. Honestly a little confused as to why so many(so far) went with Ireland here, shire(to my knowledg...
