Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

I'm mildly put out. The J! Fantasy League scoreboard posted on Thursday morning (so after the J! round of match 1) is full of spoilers. It shows the "scores" (entries earned) of all nine players who played in match 1, all the way through Day 2. So, do not go there if you do not wish to see spoilers...

Re: $0 FJ Wager Poll

Michael Dupée specifically says in his book that if you bet $0 in Final Jeopardy, you should not attempt the question, because otherwise, random people will ask you why you bet $0 on something you knew. I will make one addendum to this: If I am betting $0 because I am in a wagering situation where ...

Hot take: Larissa is better than Brad, but Larissa is unlucky while Brad has the Devil's Own luck.
Might I direct you to Kendall's Law, as so contained in the signature of user dhkendall? ;)

How is Scandinavian Arctic Explorer from 1906 not Pavlovian for Amundsen?
Comments like this make me wonder if you actually watched the show.

[*]Only one rebound the whole match. Contestants are being super-careful with the Jeopardy! Weapon™.
My numbers show Pam going 2/3 on rebounds and Alex going 1/1 in DJ today alone.

Is Brad Rutter still the #1 player of all time? This is a thing that is now up for debate, though I think we all want to see the rest of the tournament before the debate begins.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Right, their game, their rules. But I am inclined to agree that the two aspects of Final ought to be inseparable and if one is played by only one player then the other should be, too. If teams actually got a chance to consult after seeing the Final category, that means they could also play mental M...

Wasn't sure if there is a central request repository for these kinds of things, but would anyone happen to have a digital copy of this episode? I don't have a recording on hand, can probably chase it down from a couple of acquiantances but thought I'd seek the internet's help first. thanks! So, whi...

I wish Alex had waited a little longer to say no, the way he sometimes does.
The show has been known to compress silences in order to make more time to get through all 60 clues; it would not surprise me if Alex had let the timer run out in the studio, but a compression was done in post.

The game should come with a warning for the board member who does not like things such as ad libs and a movie character impression. Others will find it refreshing that the players are relaxed enough to have fun even in an event with big stakes in play.
There's only one?

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think Matt was robbed of a win. I heard his answer as “t’s Labour & Tory?” not “it’s” but saying the word “what’s” too fast so it comes out “t’s” That one clue cost him the win. Considering how well he enunciated phrasing on every other clue, I think that your interpretation is an incredibly and ...

Matt: The, uh, Labour & Tory CC has Matt opening "It's". Kind of weird that as of this moment (11:15 a.m. PST), the J! official site is already spoiling the results of today's game. They don't do that usually, I don't believe. I feel as though there's some sort of calendar error on the J! site that...

Re: Monday, February 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

But OQ only asked for the 1st = 2nd + half of 3rd scenarios up to season 20. Are we sure it hasn't happened in the last 15 years (minus a month)? I witnessed live in studio such a scenario in 2009. First and second place both missed, but third place didn't bet $0. And she was lucky she didn't, beca...
