Re: FJs for the 4/15/19 week

I got Monday's right. After that I was too distracted by James' run so I didn't play the rest of the week.

James might be breaking $1M by the end of next week. Wow. I'm hoping he does.
For it to take until the end of next week would require a huge decline in his level of play.
Yeah, I realized that shortly after I posted it. Maybe on Wednesday, then.

Re: Wired article: Ken discusses James

I realize this is kind of off-topic, but I thought James was younger than 34. I thought he looked around my age (26) but figured he had to be a bit older. So I was expecting 30 or so. He looks good.

Ouch. Knowing Nate's former success on Sports J!, I was expecting him to be good competition for James.

Congrats to James for running a second week.

Re: Thursday, April 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well I'd like James to go on as long as possible. With all the records he's already set and everything, I don't want to see his run cut short, anytime soon. And the reason I'd like to see more super tournaments is so the new greats, like James, could take on the previous ones, like Ken/Brad, and see...

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For hog wild then James goes all in at DD2 for 53,200 at that point. + 5600 gained in between the DDs for 58800 at DD3 would allow a $50,000 bet at DD3 for $108,800 and adding in the $2000 for the final ten clues of the round then $110,800 for the FJ! round. A bet in the $90,000s and he's over 200 ...

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I hope they do another UToC-type tournament again. It would be great to watch James go against the likes of Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter, and Roger Craig. Whenever his run ends, that is. Probably in 2025 or so.

Re: Best Ever Trivia Show

There's a UK trivia game show called "Eggheads". A team of four (or five) trivia experts takes on four contestants each episode. The Eggheads include Kevin Ashman and Pat Gibson, two of the greatest quizzers on the planet, both multiple time WQC winners.

James now has the Top 3 highest one-day scores all for himself. Nice.

How many times did Katie manage to ring in?

Re: J! and other notable contestants on The Chase (possible J! spoilers)

Thanks. ^ I've started actively watching The Chase Aus and UK again. I find the Aus questions easier, and it seems more fast-paced, but I like Bradley's (UK host) humor and the banter there more. It's a great show, and it would be nice if it came back in the US, even as a daily show. Instead of just...

Comment about one of the contestants coming up this weekShow
There's a Nate Marks appearing on Friday. Same guy that made the finals in the first Sports Jeopardy season? It'll be fun to see him go up against James, if James lasts until then.

Re: J! and other notable contestants on The Chase (possible J! spoilers)

Jamie / Jeff / James Holzhauer (Yes, it is he.) -- All three made it to the end and split $175,000. The Beast only reached 9 out of an impressive 26 in the Final Chase, apparently The Jeff in this episode was not me, but I know his name was Jeff King. I don't know of him being on any other game sho...

Re: J! and other notable contestants on The Chase (possible J! spoilers)

I think Osahon was on WWTBAM as well. Early in Cedric's season shortly before he was on The Chase. The reason why I have a recollection of this is because when he was on The Chase in December 2013, he talked about what his name means. I recalled that same information from WWTBAM just prior and the ...

There is a Chase episode guide at: http://gameshows.fandom.com/wiki/The_Ch ... sode_Guide
That page may be good for stats and such, but besides the celebrity episodes, it won't help IDing any of the contestants, which is the main purpose of this thread.

Re: Friday, April 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not gonna say I'm 100% positive about this, but I am fairly sure that James set another record today -- highest score after the first round. I don't remember anyone ever making it to $20K in SJ alone. Correct me if I'm wrong though. Don't know if it's ever happened, but when I saw that at the comme...
