Re: Thursday, November 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In hindsight, I remembered Jeramiah was a pretty long book. But I didn't realize it was actually the longest . I went with Isaiah. Francois' answer of Ruth.... that was a groaner. And JH is putting the pedal to the metal, which shouldn't be a surprise. Did anyone seriously think this would be compet...

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

It's been a while since I was as sure a reversal was coming in real time as when Alex initially negged 'industrial revoluion'. "Sorry, we were looking for a single term"...um, what!? Didn't think the reversal would come that fast, though. The sixty-four dollar question is, why didn't Lindsey get co...

Re: Friday, November 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Denomination is a wiggly word that can refer to both genus and species. Baptist is a denomination. But so is Southern Baptist, one of the many Baptist denominations. Other major denominations such as Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, et. al. can be subdivided into their constituent denominations. ...

Absolutely.

Peter the accountant wrote: I has been nice to see good FJ wagering the last two games. There had been an awful lot of bad wagering over the previous couple of weeks.
In said games, two out of the six wagers were glaringly bad. Not exactly a B average.

Re: Thursday, October 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Allyson had her chance at the win as well depending on her wager in the FJ! round. In her position I've seen more and I've seen less. It's a wide open betting position for what each player might do. She wagered too much to win on a TS, yet didn't even bet enough to cover a zero wager from 2nd place...

The fate of the opponent draw

Brian needed to cover Amanda's possible 20,000, so 7601 would been the suggested wager. At that wager and a miss he would have been left with 4799 for a win today. I bet he didn't sleep well on taping night. Amanda in third place with 10000 had options although 9998 is the TPiR game, "That's Too Mu...

Re: Wednesday, October 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ed needed 37201 to cover John's potential doubling (which he did attempt) and went above & beyond getting 42600. Despite possibly witnessing a FJ round leader defeated by making the 'recommended' wager in a similar scenario on the previous taping day, Ed threw caution to the wind to pad his hopeful...

Re: Monday, October 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did it sound to anyone else like Erin said "verboden" rather than "verboten?" Is that really an accepted pronunciation? I thought it sounded like she might have said "verbodem". Also, you reminded me about something else I wanted to ask on here. Right after Johnny introduced Alex and the applause d...

Re: Monday, October 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would literally never think of fishing as a job, so I understand the triple neg there. I, too, had lifeguard. I too, was flumoxed by the use of the word "job" instead of occupation. It only became obvious after Alex gave the answer. but I was sure it couldn't possibly be lifeguard. Whichever one ...

Revisiting the PCV valve clue; Geoff takes a random stab at it, incorrect. Great, Jessica can gain back some ground here. Then Jessica follows suit with a different random guess... grrrrr. And she was so good about staying clam in her first game while the others guessed themselves into the red. Folk...

Re: Wednesday, October 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That's the kind of game I love to see: three evenly matched, good quality players, all with a realistic chance going into the final. The kind of game I hate to see anyone lose. And capped off by three absolutely spot-on correct FJ wagers. Well done, all. The J round was something of a hot mess, as ...

How did I lose thee game? Let me count the ways. Bill has choices. DD1: 4800+2400 (He could have used the 2400 left on the table.) Ouch, on Julie saying an incorrect response without ringing in and then Bill ringing in to copy it only to correct himself a hair too late after Alex had already ruled ...

Re: Thursday, September 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Gabe had a tendancy to make unforced errors. It was only his fortune of finding two DDs and Jason not finding any that saved him from being locked out. I don't think he'll win more than another game. It was also surprising to see Christine finish that close to contention. Ironic that if she had only...

Re: Thursday, September 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If he does get to 30+ wins, he would also become the third player to win $1M in regular play; I am sure it would take him just as long as it took Ken to reach the $1M mark should he get that far. At his current rate, he will need at least 35 wins to reach $1M. He can chalk up a runaway game like Ja...

Re: Tuesday, September 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Upon closer inspection, Jason's bet probably wasn't optimal either. Wagering 100 less would have prevented Helen from overtaking him on a triple stumper and guaranteed no less than a tiebreaker if he got it right. This was actually a more interesting scenario than it seemed at first glance. Jason's...

Now, would someone please tell me the optimal FJ wager for second place? I did the math and came up with 2,701 min / 9,499 max ETA: I didn't recognize the scenario First = Second + 1/2 Third! I didn't even know that was a scenario worth remembering! Good grief :shock: FWIW, The J-Archive wagering s...
