Re: LL71: For The LLamas

I am now the only player in D Maritime D2 without a 3-pointer, and sit just 13th in TMP though I'm 5th in TCA, yet I'm still in 4th. Trying to cling on to my promotion zone spot each and every day at this point.

Re: Monday, November 21, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

"often, a player who is in a distant third..." Well he is right about that one. I'm hoping he's right again. But Michael, you broke my heart, man. And those looked like some killer buzzer wars going on up there. Now I'm regretting skipping these tapings. I honestly think all three of us were buzzin...

Re: Monday, November 21, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Just want to say I'm still not sure what happened on that FJ, so don't expect me to talk about it. Tough break there, but I liked your bet. You were behind by quite a bit and with Sharath possibly having $40,000 at the end you needed to be aggressive. I got FJ. After getting 4(?) buzzes in DJ I kne...

Re: Friday, November 18, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Michael, you looked hell of impressive to me in your semifinal: poised, confident and with good strategic savvy. It also doesn't hurt that you're good on the buzzer and know a few things, too! :mrgreen: I really enjoyed watching this game and I felt that it was one of the best played games of the t...

Re: Friday, November 18, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The Powers That Be put together the semifinal matchups (and the QFs', for that matter) based on what combinations they think will produce the most interesting games. I'm surprised S&P would allow that. I would have thought it would need to be random to avoid any possibility of potential favoritism....

Re: Thursday, November 17, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Alec's reaction when he won was great! Surprised all three missed that FJ. Certainly a step up in difficulty from the quarter final matches FJs, but I wuld have thought at least one of them would have gotten it. I was in the audience with the other semifinalists + Jack (alternate), and not a single...

I'd check R/Jeopardy on Reddit, in the discussion of today's game.

Re: 2016 Teen Tournament Wild Card Standings (Game 3 results posted)

This thread reminds me of the old joke, "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out!" (Rodney Dangerfield?). Anyhoo ... the standings are a good reminder that contestants in these tourneys always need to be thinking ahead of time of wild card standings as much as winning. I still maintain that J...

Re: 2016 Teen Tournament Wild Card Standings (Game 3 results posted)

I know that "known great quizzers" don't always do well on J!, but I wouldn't be surprised if Lucia and Michael both got perfect or near-perfect Coryats playing the matches from which they were sequestered from home. Obviously, with the way the buzzer is, the other opponents will get a chance at a ...

Just realized that one of my referrals has the highest TCA in R Maritime, but he's 24th (of 34).
