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

Question for cheezguyty: I know that Liz Haigney Lynch went through her entire 3-game run in June 2016 without a buzzer neg (only missing her last Final Jeopardy). Do you have the ability to determine if anyone has had 3 full consecutive games (including Final) with 0 negs? I'm almost certain that ...

Fourth second-row DD this week?! Including two in a single day (Thursday)!? Has that ever happened?
The week of December 19-23, 2016, had seven second-row Daily Doubles -- two each on Monday and Wednesday and three on Friday.

I agree that James has settled all question of whether he deserves to be ranked among the greatest of the superchamps. My question, for those of you know who keep track of such things, is how does James's average Coryat compare to the best ever? Here's everyone with an average Coryat of at least $2...

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

Like Mark, I was pleased to get the Karmann-Ghia LT in a game that had precious little LT available. And I felt awful for Anna, who had a horrible draw of opponents. For those of us trying to get on the show, getting The Call only to end up sandwiched between 2 buzzsaws is a nightmare scenario. Wit...

Did that question about the heart really require a 4-part response, i.e. RA, LA, RV, LV? What a mouthful! I was thinking the same, and it made me curious about other clues that have also required a lengthy list in the response (eg. "These five continents...", "These eight elements...") Any takers o...

Re: Friday, March 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

With apologies for not being current on the literature, has anyone crunched the numbers for the get rate on super tourney finals vs. regular games? Anecdotally, in this tournament it seems safer to bet on not knowing final than vice versa. Obviously, that is easy to say after two days of triple stu...

Re: $0 FJ Wager Poll

Where's the option for "I would never wager $0"? You should always be willing to wager any number you're allowed to. You never know when your only chance of winning is by making a $0 wager or by going all-in. Please describe a scenario where the only chance of winning is by making a $0 wager.

Did anyone notice the non-standard grammar choice on the category title ALEX' BUCKET LIST ? I cannot find a single style guide that suggests it is proper to drop the S on a possessive for a word ending in X. In fact, they all suggest that the S is not optional. Surprised that Jeopardy's writers wou...

Name a cardinal = Richelieu. Every time, maybe (except when the clues says the cardinal went on to become Pope or break a Major League home run record)? I don't feel like going through all the archive hits for cardinal to check. Can anyone falsify the assertion? French cardinal, sure (Mazarin has s...

And now you have me searching the Archive for a $7,734 wager.
In his Battle of the Decades game Fritz Holznagel's second DD wager and subsequent miss dropped his score to $7,734.
