Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

I have to wonder what the level of difficulty of the answer/questions will be. If they set it at the highest level, the expanded prime time audience may only be able to appreciate the drama of the competition, and go numb if they try to play along.

For FJ at first I took the "city of light" TOM to mean Los Angeles but the 1901 major event was a stronger TOM for Buffalo and I switched.

In Roger Craig's famous first game of the 2011 TOC final, he ended with $50,000. James Holzhauer, in a seemingly average game, ended here with $49,326.

I will be checking the box in the weekly poll stating that I teared up at Dhruv's FJ response. Pancreatic cancer can throw you curveballs.
