Re: Tuesday, May 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said Baby Shark. I don’t know what a Baby Shark is, but it’s aquatic and kids like it. Is it obvious I don’t have kids? I’m too old for Spongebob and TBH he sort of creeps me out. If anybody isn't too sure with this quote, maybe this will be of inspiration of what and who did Baby Shark: https://...

Re: Tuesday, May 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As soon as I heard the word "Feeney", I mistook this as a "Boy Meets World" kind of episode. Jim-Bob took the trap by saying Aquaman only because of the FJ! clue saying "comic", but when you throw the word "educational", you know that you messed up big time. But one thing about James that I have not...

Re: Tuesday, May 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Benjamin had the lead and 6400 after the J! round thanks to doubling on DD1 yet went into the FJ! round with only 8000. Ouch on the exit from the tourney.

So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

I know it may seem crazy to witness, but James so far has been on some kind of tear in the past week. He has done a lot of good things so far. The following include: 1) Biggest bet on a DD, and got it right. ($25,000, Philip Tiu's $19,000 for second) 2) Broke the record for the most amount of money ...

Re: Thursday, April 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Once again, we get another close game for our high-flying champion James in the first round. Yesterday, an $800 lead, and now a $400 lead heading into Double Jeopardy. First, a DD miss from James, now we see an FJ! miss from James. What's next for this guy? But man, did this turn much more dangerous...

Re: Friday, April 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Satish gave it a good run, but eventually had ran out of gas. James capitalized on that game and would have still won even if everybody had got FJ! wrong. But holy CRAP! That FJ! had me stumped for more than 30 seconds and I literally gave up trying to solve this one. (BTW, Rackme32, love that joke....

Re: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Is it too soon to start thinking about Ken Jennings comparisons?" Oh, Alex...do not speak so soon. That could apply the jinx on him. But wow...I have a lot to think about this...because Roger Craig and Philip Tiu are probably going to have questions looking back at this game, because this James guy...

Stolen off of a DBZ joke, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut... Johnny: Alex, what does the scouter say about his power level? Alex: It's over 9000!!! This James guy is LEGIT! Although we just witnessed the bad side to his job, being a sports gambler. Sometimes, going all in can prove to be his own downfall. Af...

Re: Wednesday, February 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Man...Seth really gave Eric a difficult time, especially when he picked up both DDs in the Double Jeopardy round. He caught fire and just couldn't quite complete the comeback. To my surprise, I was confused by the way the contestants chose Dr. Seuss as a "poet", when in all actuality, he's a childre...

Re: Wednesday, July 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game reminded me of Mark Runsvold in his fifth game going up against Samer Ismail, and the other challenger (whose name of course I can't remember) getting a lock game. Brian McEntee is the name. Turns out I had to fish through the j-archive website to figure out which season Mark Runsvold was...

Re: Wednesday, July 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A Macbeth quote proclaims "What’s done cannot be undone." Yikes. This coin toss wound up between Dave winning his 4th game and beckoning a new champion. The coin toss disfavored most of us. I at least give Dave partial credit for rebounding on that DD miss and prevented Burt from making it a runaway...

Re: Friday, July 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

One word describing this. Ouch. Ryan just ran into a rough outing against a bright Dave Mattingly. Ryan just dug himself a hole that cost him dearly. Yeah, perhaps if Ryan had got his first DD right, MAYBE he could have been a superchamp and continued his run. I think he just froze at a bad time. He...

Re: Thursday, July 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ryan...I'm not sure what to make of him. Prior after the 2nd DD was found in the 15th spot by Justin, with 15 more clues left, I thought that his reign was going to end if at any point did he falter or not even challenge the high value clues. But sure enough, he outscored his opponents $11,200 to $4...

Re: Wednesday, July 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

One word. Ouch. Ryan NARROWLY escaped out of a deep dark hole on a low-scoring win, and it worked to his benefit. I'm not sure what to make of this guy. He barely wins against Suzanne without a DD and ekes himself to winning on a sole get. With scores that low, this felt like it could go either way....

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was just illuminating that this was Michelle's best performance, and to lose to a returning 4-time champion using her same strategy. I said it on Monday, and Ryan definitely came out for blood, taking advantage of Michelle's strategy and getting FJ! right. You may fool them once, fool them twice,...
