Re: Tuesday, November 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Didn't have any trouble with it, probably because I've spent most of my life in areas where the influx of people from the NE states is constant and often-discussed by the natives. Surprised that James switched his answer. Wonder how often that pans out for anyone. He didn't actually switch. He had ...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 11/11/2019 - Monday TOC (SPOILERS)

I got the ones polling above .500, except for Arkansas, and missed the ones below, except for soccer and the Louvre.

Re: TOC semifinal matchups are up

What tweet was that? Someone has posted a tweet here from James that said that some people didn't play as well as they were going to after hearing about Alex's health. To me a tweet like that makes it less likely for James to have lost, as he wouldn't post a blatant spoiler. Instead I believe he's ...

My money is on Brad Rutter somehow winning even though he's technically not competing.
In a way Brad wins if James wins, as it makes a super tournament happening soon a tiny bit more likely, and then Brad can grab another mil.

Re: Thursday, May 30, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The string of incredibly easy Finals continues for James. I thought they got considerably harder during the Teachers Tournament. For a balancing data point, I'm 84% on James FJs and was 90% on Teachers'. Here's another data set for comparison, from a much weaker player: I'm 46,9 % during James's ru...

Re: Monday, May 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think it's time to bring back the limit on the number of games played. Sometimes long runs work (Rogers, Jennings), sometimes they don't (Jackson, this one). Other than Nate last week, these games are just plain boooooooooring. I really don't care how much he knows or how many records he sets. Co...

Too bad Alex misheard the last DD bet from James, as it would have been a new one day record otherwise. James quite clearly said "twenty two thousand", then Alex replied with "twenty thousand even?" and James nodded. Guess he didn't bother correcting Alex for a measly two grand. Just rewatched that...

Ooo, sorry, you forgot to phrase it in the form of a question. :lol:
"What is Life", however, would have been acceptable, as 2/3 of the contestants demonstrated.

Sorry no straw man. I wasn't referencing anything in this thread.

Surprised they negged "I Get by With a Little Help from My Friends" but didn't neg "Baby, You Can Drive My Car." He didn't phrase it correctly. They did accept "I Get by With a Little Help from My Friends" from Benjamin, even though he only got as far as "I Get by With" and was then cut off by Alex...

Re: Friday, May 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have done some calculating. According to my numbers, through 22 games, in locked games, if James had bet the maximum he could and still be guaranteed to win, instead of betting meaningful numbers, he would have acquired an additional $46,687. That is a lot to leave on the table.. I assume you've ...

Re: Monday, April 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It seems James has now passed Ken in average Coryat ($29,431 to $29,154) and closing in on correct responses (455 to 460). Also, his average streak is up to 39.9 games and he has a 10 % chance of getting to 75 games. In the end the 74 game record might be the only record Ken has left.
