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

Because results oriented people will undoubtedly say Roey should have wagered $1, let's just get ahead of it. No, he shouldn't have. Not necessarily. We've run the numbers and there's really no wrong decision between wagering $0 and $1. If he chose to wager at all, his optimal bet would've been $51...

Not just because Roey's from Arlington (where I live), but I LOATHE this tiebreaker rule. What's the point of it? It's also stupid that the loser in this case only got 2000 instead of nearly 20k :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: tie break thing here like on best ever trivia sh...

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

Oh no worries man, I totally understand why you did that, I just found it to be pretty funny. I'd much rather people bet $4,000 consistently on DD's then make wimpy bets like $1,000 or less on them anyway. After James's amazing run I've been spoiled by all the gutsy wagers, but I still understand w...

Also, I bake all my own bread. Started about two years ago, never look back.
So cool! But I can't imagine turning on the oven again until at least October!
how about turning on the TD machine before then?

i guess the contestants never watched ncis seasons 4 and 5...i learned grenouille meant frog because of the arms dealer that had the nick name of "le grenouille (the frog)", so for that dish was easy to get to frog legs

I thought that "The Lottery" was a much older story than that, so I guessed Edward Bulwer-Lytton for FJ.

Let me be the first boardie not named TPH to say I have never, ever heard of Shirley Jackson in my life. This was the stand-and-stare of all stand-and-stares. Not even a glimmer of recognition at the reveal. It happens. Evidently.

never heard of that person either

Simona Halep beats Serena Williams, 6-2 6-2, at Wimbledon for her 2nd major title. Serena remains 1 behind Margaret Court's record of 24 major singles titles. Novak Djokovic defeats Roger Federer, 7-6, 1-6, 7-6, 4-6, 13-12. The match was the first-ever match to utilize Wimbledon's new tiebreaker pr...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Best Ever Trivia Show" [Spoilers]

Another rough time for Arianna as she only got 1/5 in the Final Round. Anyone could have won $10,000 in that episode. Had Eric been up against Ken, he probably wouldn't have won. It is better to see a win by the contestant when they and the expert both do really well and the expert loses on one que...

Re: Wednesday, July 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My plan going in was to do whatever it takes to get the lead, by being quick but cautious on the buzzer, hunting for daily doubles, and betting medium to big when I find them. I'd say it worked. :) I was wondering if you might be one of the first contestants to play after James Holzhauer's games be...

Got all but "Purple Rain" in Anal Bum Cover, and all but potassium in Mnemonics. Bombed "Literature" but I could've gotten the first two. Ran the $400s in DJ!, all but "allegory" in Body Part Within, not so hot otherwise. How the hell did I get "Francois Mitterand"? No guess on FJ! yet again. Yet a...

Re: TD 426 - Grab Bag (Q1-Q6 revealed)

I thought the US flag might be the "it's so obvious that everyone avoids it" answer, but wasn't brave enough to try it (good thing). Nope, that prize goes to the LOTR books and the Hobbit (did Two Towers seriously go unused?). Meanwhile, "Mere Christianity" sheeps, and out of 26 toppings, 4 people ...
