Re: Thursday, February 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)


I thought Allison was a charming person and hated that she only got $1,000 for her efforts. But thems the breaks.
3 very good players. Tough lineup.

Re: Monday, February 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I meant less than 50% to get it correct. I plead guilty of mistyping. :roll: Unless it impacts win percentage, if we hate the category and think we will be correct less than half the time, the correct math wager is $0. (Anytime we are within 2/3 of 1st if 3rd is not a concern). Generally folks think...

Re wagering Great that she goes big on DD3 but holding back the 1,000 should have cost her today. And yes it’s her money and she can bet it anyway she likes. We can objectively review her FJ wager as to optimal strategy. IMO choosing 19% of ~31K (6k) vs 47% of 15+k (7.5k) is the obvious way to look...

Re: Friday, February 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Terry must have set a record for wrong answers while ending up with a lock. That was my exact thought. One of the most nervous contestants turns into the gutsiest. He had the serve on his racquet and fired an ace. Folks play all the time to try and have the advantage when instead they can go for th...

Did they credit back for “beep me”?

Third correct answer:email me? Not as good as page/beep but given the wording of the clue......

How do some of things make it through QC?

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.

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...

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.
