Re: Friday, April 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another run of the mill $80k payday. This is normal, yet not normal. J! isn't this easy. Have I been watching a different game show all these years!? J! isn't this easy! I missed nearly all of KJ's run due to RL. Is this what it was like to watch? Instaget FJ. This feels like it should've been a tr...

That FJ took me longer than it should have, but I finally got the pun and came up with Aquaman. At this point it seems like we need either Austin Powers or LSV to step in to take James down. :D Don't forget Lampy the man who has beaten James head to head. Or Schliemann. LSV has posted he won't try ...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I don't know if this episode has come up in this thread, but a fun fact about the deciding game of the 1990 college championship, the double jeopardy round board for that game is featured on the cover of "The Jeopardy! Book" That is a fun fact, and I don't think it's come up. +1 I added a line in t...

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

I saw "C. King," interpreted it as a substitute for the word "seeking," and thought it hinted towards sight, or lack thereof. I went with Daredevil. You know a champ is dominant when you lament to yourself about how he only won $74,000. I wonder how much longer it will take him to crack seven figur...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The 4/18 episode comments: Taylar DeRosa said she had not heard of James Comey. That gave me zero expectations of finding her name in the J! Archive when I checked later. The best part of the question she botched was her saying 500 weeks was like 12 months and her boyfriend correcting her that, no, ...

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

Did I really just miss this FJ! ? I thought "seeking" and went with The Flash. Maybe hearing Alex say it would have helped. I just finished reading JL8 , an unauthorized comic featuring the Justice League as 8 year olds. Too bad for me, Aquaman wasn't in it, so he never even occurred to me. Want to...

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

In practice I'm not sure it's even 250 milliseconds. That may be a case of rounding up. I recall John Lauderdale telling me it was some much lower number, like single-digit or double-digit milliseconds, and therefore, each contestant should pulse the button as rapidly as possible (just as Watson di...

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

In Jeopardy timing, not just speed, matters. Yeah, if you buzz in too early, doesn't it lock you out for...what is it, 3 seconds? Also, why DOES it lock you out? I'm not fond of that. The lockout is about .25 seconds and nowhere near 3 seconds unless you are too fast and continually lock yourself o...

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

James "only" wagered $11,914, $25,000 & $60,013 today. It's possible it could have been more. DD2: James at 26600 led 3800 and 3000 at clue 14 James added the 11,914 Let's bump it up to $15,000 DD3: 44114 to the same 3800 & 3000 at clue 20 James added the 25,000 He could have had 47200 with the cons...

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

As amazing as James was in once again setting the new 1-day record it could have been more as he failed to uncover DD1 when he had 5600 at the time. Even so $131,127 should be good enough to put the record out of reach for mere mortals. The FJ! clue had me take the Hammer with no response. Ancient d...
