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

I would definitely put Lindsey Berns, along with Kaya Chua, Rene Bender, Becca Arm, Julia Kite, Kerri Griffith, and E. A. Srere as one of the best female J! non-winners. Don't forget Kim Taylor (the one from Season 26), who until earlier this year had the highest known Coryat ever for a losing chal...

FTR, I just want to state that the main reason why I don't think Susan will streak herself is because players who win with less than $10K generally do not last more than a day. Obviously there are exceptions to this (Gilbert Collins had a similar total on his first day and went on to qualify for th...

Re: Monday, September 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The Jason juggernaut continues. 7 consecutive runaways going back to the final game of Season 35; without checking, I would guess that the only other contestants to have accomplished that are James and Ken. Julia Collins had seven consecutive runaways, starting with her thirteenth game. If you cons...

I know I'm extremely late to the party on this one, but I was catching up on last season and playing through this game today and I noticed that this game was played entirely top-to-bottom. In particular, DJ! was played top-to-bottom, left-to-right. Anybody (I guess I'm talking most to cheezguyty) k...

Re: Administrative Note

A similar problem was reported in a post to the support forum for the Simple Spoiler BBCode extension, also in relation to an update to the phpBB software. A newer version of the extension was then released which seems to fix the issue.

If some knows when he was on WWTBAM I can add one for that as well.

Re: Trivia about Trivia: Obscure Record Holders

I've mentioned those infernal Radio City Music Hall celeb matches from 2006 many times. They have to be some kind of record for unrevealed clues, with 11/17/06 being the frontrunner at 16 in J! and 10 in DJ! This was due to an insane amount of buffoonery and the inexplicable decision to have Broadw...

Question for cheezguyty (mostly because I don't keep tournament data in my spreadsheets): Other than Holzhauer games, where does today's game rank in terms of "combined final score post-Final Jeopardy"? Tonight's post-FJ combined score of $106,399 is the highest ever for any game outside of James's...

Has anyone ever figured out what percentage of players who are ahead going into FJ bet zero?
Excluding games where the leader has a lock, it's less than 1%. It's actually slightly more common for the leader to bet it all.

Re: Friday, June 7, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was embarrassed to miss this FJ. I spent way too much time thinking "Victoria is in the clue so it can't be Victoria, can it?" This made me curious if the correct answer to Final Jeopardy has ever been contained within the clue (not counting trivial cases such as when the answer is a letter of th...
