Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

(In the extremely unlikely event that I got a replacement call, May 23 would be a much better date for me, although of course I would move H...

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

If that's the case, why look at the question at all? Just focus on the lights and process the question after you buzz in. Assume that you're the only person playing this strategy. If you're going with "shoot first, ask questions later", your opponents are more likely to "stay clam" on clues that ar...

Noticed Boston emails are going out. I've seen two different tweets about it.

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?

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

As we've already seen many times before this, a deep knowledge base is worth rather little if you never get called on to answer. I know handling the signaling thingy is part of the game, but I hate to see it become basically the whole game. It's always been the whole game. It just becomes more prom...

Is it a new record for most money before FJ, and a new record for most bet on FJ?
He had more on April 9 before Final, but it is a bet record.

Re: Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Where are you getting the source of this? That seems incredibly low, unless we have differing definitions of "leaving money on the table"? FWIW I am defining money left on the table as, in a lock-game situation: {[Ken's DJ score] - 2*[runner-ups DJ score] - 1} - [Ken's wager] Literally the stats I ...

However, he left a lot of money on the table over the years, I suspect probably over a million dollars. Ken left $119,978 on the table over 74 games. (An average of $1,621 a show.) *But not "all for himself." He had the top two all for himself, and shared the third (= fourth = fifth = sixth) place ...

I'm somewhat surprised she hasn't yet, though more so that she has not yet in LL.

No. Could question #2 ever be answered? Maybe some intrepid reporter will start to wonder and start digging and find something...

People keep complaining about technical issues with the test. I hope they don't have to start over with new tests!
"Technical issues" with the test happen with some people every year, though.
