Re: Tuesday, June 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The deliberate bankroll accumulation mentioned here is the only tactic that can be said to be a true "James signature move." Others have tried, but it's a strategy that requires the contestant to maintain consistent control of the board to work, which is rare in its own right given that it involves...

Re: Tuesday, June 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Being this is the first post-Holzhauer game, did Emma or any of the challengers implement any of James' strategies (e.g. aggressive DD/FJ wagering, Forrest Bounce)? Seeing as no one actually answered your question, yes. There were definitely elements of James' strategy present in this game. The gam...

Re: James wouldn't have lost pre-James

Also, Emma said in an interview that she had auditioned 4 times. That means she was in the pool for like 6 years before getting the call. If they were aware of her strengths, why did they not call her before? They save top players for clashes of titans? There's no explanation that doesn't sound lik...

Re: J! in the Media

I'm not down on James and his clinical efficiency. When Robin says he doesn't respect the game, I disagree. He prepped like hell, auditioned more than once--"made it his job," as she says. That's committment on a level few can match. His prep is, in my view, admirable. If he had the time and this w...

Re: J! in the Media

Consider that Jeopardy!, much like a wedding, was the last time many of us had professional photos taken, w/professional makeup done. In many cases, it’s between that or an awkward cut-out from a group photo. I hear there’s something called a “selfie” the kids are doing today. “professional photo, ...

Re: J! in the Media

Falco comes off poorly. You lost; stop with the sense that you were good enough that you were supposed to win a couple of games. Move on with your life. It’s interesting how little the country cares about JH’s personality flaws, yet a small group of fans - almost all former contestants - can’t see ...

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Just out of curiosity - why? Personally, I LOVE watching greatness. Well, I am kind of on your page, I like the big tournaments and would love if they were every three years (every year might be a bit much), but I can see being annoyed by a lot of the newer champions. In the old days, even the best...

Re: Friday, April 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I will legitimately be in awe if you wear your clown nose on the show. People do all sorts of gestures during the opening, but I’ve never seen anyone working props. Doesn’t mean I won’t try! I’ve been thinking about it! I didn’t see any of Jennifer Morrow’s games (was living in Senegal in 2015), bu...

Yeah, I imagine that would open up a can of legal worms, no?

Re: Friday, April 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Fourth second-row DD this week?! Including two in a single day (Thursday)!? Has that ever happened? Yes, that's happened. Hard not to think the producers are intentionally stirring it up to make one of two interesting things happen: either someone with the more traditional approach to clue order ge...

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A slander (or libel) is a factually false and reputation-damaging statement. The comments I am referring to fit your definition exactly. OK then, I believe you. I won't visit the site in any case, and obviously I am not going to ask you to relay claims you believe to be slanderous, as that would be...

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Indeed not, but this continues to be curious, particularly in his lack of surprise that someone should create such an involved fan page in his name for unclear reasons (as opposed to, for instance, posting on a site like this), which would be my first concern if I were him. If the champ were a woma...

Yes, there are haters. And on Twitter a few people from the J! / trivia community were saying that if the website wasn't his, he should publicly say so. Now he's done that and people are moving the goalposts. Well, no, he didn't say, "The website is not mine"; he said: "Friendly reminder that this ...

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If it is determined that Holzhauer did indeed create the site his status for the TOC will come into serious doubt. I think this is very doubtful. James is going to be a popular champ who may be one of the greatest players ever. It's going to take something a whole lot more egregious than that to ke...

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So someone denying something on Facebook is proof positive? (This is not a comment on whether he was involved or not.) Also, "authored by me" =/= "affiliated with me/known to me," which I think is the more interesting question here. If it's not him or someone known to him, who is it, exactly? I'm r...

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

2. Someone with a grudge against James, who is close enough to him to have somehow obtained results, is doing this to make him look bad. If true, that's some enemy, and all of us should be unsettled by this person's intentions just as fans of the show. Given that multiple people who claim to have c...
