Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

I wonder if the show could disrupt its long-standing summer rerun tradition and have a week or two of memorable moments from this run, say a week showing his top 5 single game scores and another week with his five closest calls, possibly including the game he loses… If there is one. Of course he co...

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

I keep laughing at the sheer ridiculousness of what I'm seeing. This is way too much fun to watch. Many congrats, James. Given how good James is, I'm proud of myself for snagging two bottom-row TSes in Judy Moody and Game Informer (to which my brother is currently subscribed). ........... Bird, bird...

Re: Monday, April 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget Final. ETA: Pretty sure I saw Buzzy in the audience during the shot right before Alex walked on stage. Had read he was in attendance for some of James' games, so I'm happy to figure out which games he saw. ETA again: Should've checked Kevin's Reddit post LOL, thanks for the confirmation! Fi...

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

Gordon / Caitlin / Michael (don't recognize) ..... Next was another celebrity edition, with Cameron Mathison, Tatyana Ali, and Carson Kressley . Carson was on that two-week Celeb J! special in Season 23. Cameron hasn't been on J!, but from shows I follow, he's also been on a DWTS. The two guys made...

Re: Thursday, April 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Matched Champ and Stephanie in FJ - snaps a streak of 8 straight. Facepalm upon reveal. Both challengers, once again, came across as strong players. My instincts tell me (though not with a specific recall) that The Goldbergs must have featured the subject for the FJ! clue either in an opening or as ...

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

Yeah, James vs. the big shots needs to happen quicker than five years from now or so. First, James will have to navigate being the BMOC for the TOC. Of course that means being defeated before November. Prior Presidents' Trophy winners with TOC finish: (list) Completely agreed on the first point, bu...

Re: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well... never mind five days lol. So James now holds the four- and five-day records. I assume Austin has the six-day record and it's amazing to think James nearly broke that too. ............. -highest score after SJ (this wasn't such a blowout but I can't recall anyone hitting 10k before) James di...

Re: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

And thus, the game was never the same. I can't believe what I just witnessed. Here's this to chew on: James won more today than EIGHT members of the current ToC field in all of their games .. AQ's Rachel, Gilbert and Dhruv, and the quintet of other 4x champs still on the bubble. In the past two days...

Another tremendous game, several fantastic players and matches this week. Nice work from James to pull away again in the later stages. I'm sad we only get 30 minutes worth of Satish's mustache. Took about five seconds before I landed on Berlin --> Bern to cap off a 5/5 week. I feel fortunate though,...

Figures I'm near the bottom in a wheelhouse TD. :lol: A co-sheep for Lumberjacks was well worth it though - not a fan of the school by any means but Thomas Walkup might be my favorite small school player of the past decade. Back when my brackets were good every year, I remember picking Walkup and SF...

Seeing as how the rest of the post has nothing to do with the game, I'll just add one more thing: Much respect for Anna, handling her unfortunate draw with aplomb as she did. Her reality is my worst nightmare should I ever get on stage. someone else on here remembered arceneaux? would never have gue...

Re: Thursday, April 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

But what exactly is Ulm's claim to fame? I mean, even adjusting for the pre-doubled dollar values, he won "only" $17,200 (=$34,400), far below the league of Myron, Larissa and now James (not to mention below Jerome Vered's pre-doubled day one score of $24,000 (=$48,000)). Not to say he doesn't have...

Re: Thursday, April 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wow. That was impressive. Would have gotten FJ right anyway, but I recently re-watched the 1999 Weber State/UNC Tourney game starring Harold "The Show" Arceneaux, so the school + location were closer to the front of my mind. Pour one out for contestant Alex. He did better than I expected given the h...

Congrats Steven, welcome to the ToC! It's been a pleasure watching him play thus far.

Did the math first to get 1977 -> Elvis, then realized King of Rock and Roll, the other must be Queen of something --> pulled Franklin. Cut it close, but a get's a get.

Glad that Steven won again (good luck tonight, champ!), but I feel bad for Reid. A quick glance of the Archive shows that he might have put up the highest-nonwinning Coryat in, at least, the past decade. Curious to know where he stands in terms of show history, I just don't have time to look. Do yo...

Re: TD 415 - Anniversary Edition (Q1-Q9 revealed)

Started to regret my Olazabal response last night as I thought about it more - think he's been used a few times as somewhat recent TD responses. Can't believe I still underestimate the sports knowledge of some of you folks. Caught a break when I had Plain Dealer typed in but changed course and dropp...

I meant like James is, since some people here have had experiences with him both online and in real life, and since some of us have also known him from The Chase. Austin was on Cash Cab a few years prior , but I do not believe anyone here or elsewhere on social media remembered/recognized him until...

Re: April promo with spoilers (kind of minor, kind of major)

Wow.. what a promo. This would go less noticed than the one-day record, but Frank Spangenberg's long-standing five-day (adjusted) record and Austin Rogers' six-day record from last year seem reachable by a juggernaut contestant who wagers big. I, for one, am hoping for a mammoth season-spanning run,...
