Coryat: 38,200 48 R/4 W DD: 2/3 FJ: :mrgreen: LT: fisherman, murmur, Air Supply, Carl Sandburg This was a game of some weird DD issues. Even though I got to the intended response, I still have no idea how to parse DD1. "... & will give you the name of a hunter"? What? DD2 was, unless I'm missing som...

Got the right play on Friday, but mixed up E. Albee and E. O'Neill
So far this season, I'm 18/20 on Monday-Thursday FJ!s and 2/5 on Friday. Weird.

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't think there's anything wrong with suggesting that Lindsey in particular appeared to have the makings of a superchamp. To do so is no slight to Susan. Certainly Susan might win a bunch more games. However, it was Lindsey, not Susan, who dominated this game.

Re: Wednesday, September 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The mistake only cost him a maximum of $7200 if you compound the $1800 through two DJ! DDs - and that's only if he found both DJ! DDs (unlikely), AND he was forced (or chose) to go all-in for both. "Only...$7200" in a game of J! is a huge deal. More to the point, he missed out on $1800 in a game wh...
