Re: Sad Legal News About a Former Champion

I'm curious why you are so adamant in your defense of Stephanie, Quantum. To me it's clear what she did was wrong and illegal and she must suffer the consequences. She was a great player and she's an entertaining individual, but that doesn't make her above the law. What Adrian College did is the se...

I used to play a match-three game called Snood, but the meaning of the name must've eluded me over the years.
You and one of my bosses when I was in university are the only two I've ever known to have played this game.

My first win came this evening (though I've only been playing again for less than a week) for $3.02.

Re: Monday, June 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Out of curiosity, why did you wait until right before FJ, with your adrenaline high and blood pumping, to consider these scenarios? Why didn't you run through all these potential scenarios (of which there aren't that many) weeks or months before you were on your show, in the comforts of your own ho...

For spur-of-the-moment reasoning, it's not bad, but of course, the actual correct decision should be derived from quantitative analysis taking into account prize money, confidence in the category, chances leader will get it right, maybe conditional probabilities, etc. Under certain assumptions, you...

One would be referred to as Katherine, the other Kate. Or Cathy. Or Kat. Probably not Kitty-Kat.

Not difficult.
If that's the case then I thought the contestant's name would appear with said nickname on the page.
Not necessarily.

Hope Tracey got good deals on her travel arrangements as she gifted David an extra $1000 that he could have spared.
Tempted to disagree with this because Stratton's Dilemma and the fact that it was an exact two-thirds game.

It did not cost Mirza the game, but botching the Shakespeare Puck play is losing bucks and serving up a rebound to double the price of the miss.
I enjoyed the collective murmur-gasp from the audience on that one.

So much for prognostications about adding five wins to Mirza’s total after one win.
Though I'd say this result was a mild surprise, even my model wasn't that bullish on Mirza.

I felt FJ needed a TOM. I was trying to use the New York area and spent the next 29 seconds trying to remember the name of the Monopoly guy. I was even looking up something related to Christie a couple of days ago, and it would never have occurred to me the mustache was notably fake. Was that menti...

Anyone want to set an o/u on the number of Prince fans who will get Upset Online that the show accepted "Party Like It's 1999" because they don't know the show's rules?

Are you disqualified if you turn 18 before the filming date but after the audition? Your question is probably better answered with an email to the address you were given with your audition information. That said, I would venture that if you graduated high school this spring, then you're probably no...

Gentlemen: If Leslie bets to cover (like she did) she will have 599 on a miss. You think you might want to stay above that figure? Tommy: If Ian doubles that is 22000. If you bet 10000 or 10001 you play tomorrow. Ian: Lots of choices although the farm should not be one of them. Frankly, even Leslie...

Skyler impressed me multiple moments during the episode, but she whiffed at some crucial moments, and not just in terms of her responses. Think of how drastically the game changes if she goes all-in on her first round DD. In that case, she already has a lock when she finds that last DD, and if she ...

I'm sure mfc248 was at work tonight because he wasn't live-tweeting at 7:00, but I'm curious to know how quickly he got this Final Jeopardy! when he does get to watching this game.
