Re: Friday, January 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

While I think people may refer to "penalty minutes" as "penalties", that's definitely too informal. Isn't Alex Canadian?

The box score if you're interested.

Congrats to James on his ToC victory (he became the first 10+ time champion to win a ToC) For those who wondered (like I did) what about Ken?

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: I suspect most people would rather see a sole wi...

Re: Friday, May 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Now that the show has aired I am sure there will be some interview with James concerning the episode he crossed $2m in winnings and his FJ answer will be explained. It quite possibly was a shout out to his hometown on the day he crossed $2m in winnings and that's all. Which would explain why he has...

Re: Rule Change Effective 4/29/19 - No More FJ! Shout-Outs

What a STUPID rule change.
Evidently, the producers are worried that James is wasting too much precious FJ response time and want to force him to play more efficiently.
What a STUPID reason for a STUPID rule change. It's not like he's getting more time to answer.

Re: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

$1,155,000 for 15 games is $77,000 average. With $1,061,554 banked that has James needing $93,446 (and a win) tomorrow to hit the magical average. To even mention such hypotheticals would have seemed insane prior to James hitting the stage. I appreciate that you allowed for the possibility that Jam...

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

Also, why DOES it lock you out? I'm not fond of that. Because they want a disincentive for buzzing in early. Yeah, I got that, but WHY don't they want people to buzz in early. Personally I feel if you know it, you should be able to buzz in whenever (with the exception of there being contestants lik...

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

Buzzing speed matters. In every game so far, there’s one player who barely buzzes in, and I doubt it’s because they don’t know the answers. Of course buzzing speed matters greatly, but I think James also knows a bit more of the material than the average contestant. This reminds me of triviawayne's ...

New single-day record (he owns what, the top 4 now)?

Is it a new record for most money before FJ, and a new record for most bet on FJ?
