Would be nice if poker dealer Jim at least tried to win in final jeopardy.

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

a) I'm not talking to you, Mark Barrett. This could and should have been a really tense match with an uncertain outcome. b) Nate. Buddy. You've watched this guy play at least three games. You've heard the statistic about his AVERAGE being higher than the previous highest score ever. And you still l...

Pardon if this is discussed elsewhere, if/when will James’ run catch up to real time- when will contestants know about him from TV vs watching him only in studio.

Anyone know the details of Eric’s radio days. My wife grew up in Cinci but was in grade school back then. Voice is familiar she says.

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

Seth is our standard underbet DD and overbet FJ contestant. Trailing 11,200 to 21,000 he wagers 5,000 on a DD. He’s basically dead if he misses, so leaving the 6,200 behind is pointless. Trailing 17,000 to 24,300 he wagers it all but $1. Wonder if he understands even today how he screwed up on both ...

Another "nice to be here, I don't even want to try to win wager". We can assume Vermonter is still drinking when this occurs.

There was such a big reaction when she got over 50% of first on the last clue before the buzzer. She had to know.

Re: Friday, November 30, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was rooting for Elizabeth, so yay to those awful wagers. For once, the only player that knows how to wager isn't penalized for being the only player who knows how to wager . Wagering from first correctly is very common. It’s from 2nd and 3rd where we can fully judge wagering ability. A in 3rd had...

This game is a draw for the Weak Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "small." --Bob Not sure of the exact definition, but hiw bet was too big. Surely the intent is to stay above 1st's cover bet if he misses. It just seems so obvious there is no advantage from him not to stay abo...

Re: Monday, October 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Like the small bet from first (hey, if you hate the category, put the game on 2nd getting it right if possible). No clue what Andrew was thinking, gave himself 0 chance to win. Had to bet 600 to get above the cover bet miss from 1st. Outloud said Anna Karina --assume this would have NOT been close e...

Was anyone else surprised to learn that restaura n teur is actually restaura n teur ? :shock: But I still think she should've gotten credit. (that "incorrect" usage is just too easy to find...) Clue specifically said no N. My team played ND most years so South Bend was an instaget.

No shock on the wager, finally caught up with her and glad her opponents bet accordingly. (She seems like a lovey person I’m just a bit of a gamebot). Is this a reference to yesterday's show? Yes, sorry. Hazard of watching both episodes back to back. Mrs is a big baseball fan so we watched the all ...

Fun show for me. I helped commercialize a process to make lactic acid and gypsum is a byproduct. Come to think of it I’ve made cheese and yogurt starter cultures as well. The fun of industrial microbiology. No shock on the wager, finally caught up with her and glad her opponents bet accordingly. (Sh...

That was a quick switch from "really happy when he though that Carolyn was going to go close to all-in" to "really sad when her $0 bet was revealed". My initial thought was Wagner, but the year got me to Ruth easily enough. Reaction was strange as he was losing to Jen regardless. Hopefully she wage...

Re: 2017 TOC Wild Card Standings thread (SPOILERS-Game 5 posted)

Does anyone have the link handy were someone (Vermonter?) put out a historic wild card probability (couldn't find on thefinalwager).

i.e. what what scores do >50%, >75%, >90% to advance as a wildcard?

Thanks

Huh, I thought we were afraid of people codifying their religious beliefs into secular law. Oh, just your religion, not mine. I get it. Sorry for the derail, this always tilts me--especially with the current powers that be. The ruling on "sell alcohol" was like a close sports replay. OK either way. ...

During the Think Music, I told Carol Anne who it was, and she said she had never heard of him. I said, "You drive by the street named for him every day!"

Re: Thursday, June 8, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Smaller wagers can be "defensible" in that they are enough to cover an accurate wager by the leader. But they are incorrect because if you need to be right in order to win the game (as is the case against any sane wager when you're trailing in a Crush), you might as well go all in to maximize your ...

(I'm wondering, was Gettysburg a particularly notable battle, or was it just President Lincoln's speech there that made it a reunion-worthy event?) Furthest northern incursion. Philadelphia threatened if successful. Massive battle over 3 days. If you haven't been, GO. The shear scope of the battle ...
