Re: Friday, June 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This Final seemed awfully YEKIOYD. Other than just knowing that specific line from "The Metamorphosis", the only way it seems to navigate this one is "name an early 20th C. European author from a country that was probably not the home nation of an author from the 6 CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF THEIR NOV...

Re: Wednesday, June 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Had Katie risked it all on DD2 she would have been in the old lock-tie scenario going into FJ. However, based on her DD wagers, I seriously doubt she would have wagered $0 in FJ to have the chance of winning the tie breaker question.

Sarah very possibly made the FJ wager that shows the absolute worst winning chances. So of course she wins.

Re: Thursday, June 10, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What do you think he should have wagered? At least $6201. You should make the person in the lead get FJ! correct to win. I don't see what leaving $1600 if you get it wrong accomplishes. Sure, leaving anything accomplished nothing. So the correct answer is $7600. My point was, even though his wager ...

Ankit should've lost for making that horrible FJ! wager.
If that were the case for all contestants there would regularly be no returning champ.

While his wager was not GTO, it wasn’t horrible either. What do you think he should have wagered?

Shannon played DD3 at clue 29 with $2000 left on the board. 7600 to 13800 and a narrow lead with 14200. What to wager? Shannon went with 1000 and lost it to drop to 2nd. Shannon quickly made up for it by getting the last clue to retake the lead. What to wager? How about not $1000? :roll: $1k does n...

Re: Proposed Megatournament Structure

I often lie awake at night wondering how long Jeopardy will continue to ignore me as a contestant. Am quite sure many others do the same. This proposed tournament consists of 53 games, that means 106 new contestants will never get their chance. Proposed contestants for this have at the very least ha...

Well, looks as though I was wrong about how this FJ would poll here. Currently at roughly 50%. I just don't get it, a work that's been asked about many times in the archive in a very narrow category where they only ask about a very few different books. I could believe 50% by itself, but what boggles...

17th Century + giants = Don Quixote to me, and never thought of changing, though the water part did confuse me. I disagree with Mark's assessment and believe that clue was too tough as written. A mention of England or reference to it being a philosophical work would have been nice to take me away f...

Kevin goes DD hunting immediately in DJ, quickly hits one in the 2nd row, and wagers $2k of a possible $7.2k? Ugh. The other two DD wagers were the same. But then all three wager well in FJ. Huge fan of BBT and Mayim did not disappoint today. Not really sure why or that it matters, but thought her c...

When Jennifer found DD2 she led Sam $10.4k to $6.6k, through 34 clues she had outplayed him. No real reason to think she wouldn't be able to at least hold her own for the rest of the game, especially after the start she got off to in DJ. If she goes TDD she then leads $20.8k to $6.6k, a $14.2k diffe...
