Re: Thursday, July 27, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wonder if the contestants were somewhat primed to guess DDL after the Holland/Lincoln DD that immediately preceded the final break.

Re: Wednesday, May 31, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I also always get confused which one Guiteau shot, McKinley or Garfield. For the record, G uiteau shot G arfield. And Czolgolz sounds like it could be near Denali That's kind of what I said! In that I said to skullturf, "Czolgolz reminds me of Kosciuszko, and both Kosciuszko and McKinley are/were m...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

If you are at the audition, well you've passed the test and are good enough to play the game, so why focus on that at this point in the process. This is just flat out wrong. You made a passing grade on one test, but that doesn't mean you are good enough to play the game. You could have been lucky o...

Re: FJs for the 4/3/17 week

On my first episode, I missed a Daily Double about the fact that lungs have lobes. No way was I missing it this time!

Ditto.

December 26, 2016 NHO Ryan Gosling, and don't recognize any of the movies he's been in either. ... Four hits for Gosling in 2016 not counting tonight. December 4, 2013 NHO Ryan Gosling.

Re: Has a winning contestant ever been unable to return?

I know Claudia Corriere, who played almost exactly a year ago, didn't return after her first win for a few weeks because of a new job she was offered. After her return she was a "returning co-champ" and won again. She didn't win during the co-champ episode. No one did: http://www.j-archive.com/show...

I spent way too much time thinking that calling "the final solution" drastic was a bit of an understatement.

Re: Chess Strategy

The purpose of this poll was to gauge the opinions of a group of devoted Jeopardy! fans on a question about Jeopardy!, not about chess. This is the most important point, and OldSchoolChamp isn't the only one to make it. The question isn't whether the defense at issue (or any opening) constitutes "c...

I did. I even provided further reading for those wishing to learn about it, which you didn't bother doing. Now, it's good to be skeptical about my (or anyone's) claims, but it makes no sense to make counterarguments on a subject you clearly don't know. Especially since you could have confirmed or d...

Re: Thursday, May 26, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The Alekhine (pronounced "A-lo-hin") Defense is not a "chess strategy", but rather, a "chess opening". Calling it the former would make any chessplayer laugh and think you don't know anything about the game. Your post implies that there is such a thing as a "chess strategy" that is distinct from (r...
