Re: You guys are obsessed over wagering way too much.

Yeah, I think anyone following these threads and posting anything on this board is obsessed way too much. I mean, I grabbed my phone to look at recipes for potato salad, and I ended up here. Why is that? Reddit potato salad is far superior in every conceivable manner. That's literally because John ...

Re: Who Wants to be a Millionaire before Jeopardy

Fritz Holznagel will try to be the next one tomorrow. Retroactive good luck to him! Has Dan Melia done Millionaire? If he does, that'll create another Jeopardy episode where all three contestants were, or became, Millionaire alums. To my knowledge, this is the only such game. Well technically this ...

Considering the low level of a number of players in the first round, knowing there was someone from my alma mater in the green room who didn't get a shot is a particularly annoying observation.
He'll get a shot.

Re: Meanwhile... in the Green Room

It looks like there is a gentleman in a Caltech sweater who is in the green room all day. There was no Caltech student on the show for this tournament. For tournament play do they typically keep an alternate that doesn't get to play? I know on the regular version of the show they keep an alternate ...

The first season for the team was 1998, so that is an ERRATUM for the archivist.
Their minor league teams began play in 1996, but still an error.

My 50-50 was between Turkey and "Macedonia" before deciding that I didn't think Jeopardy wanted to weigh in on the FYROM debate, and went for Turkey instead.

Re: Tuesday, March 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

There's a big difference between debating someone's wagering strategy and making unwarranted personal comments about someone for the way they look or act, for example. If people can't handle the former, I don't know if that's our problem. Are we really supposed to pretend that every wager is brilli...

Re: Tuesday, March 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

By not betting everything, Lisa cost herself a cool $12,000. That's the direct opposite of wagering "very well". I like her a lot, but if I was in her shoes, I would have nightmares for the next decade about that decision. And we wonder why 90% of the contestants go over to Reddit to post these day...

(and also hedge against the possibility that the leader underwagers). --Bob That's exactly what I was thinking. I know the leader doesn't always underwager, but surely it's common enough that a seemingly perfect wager can still be incredibly risky. What if he just bet $4000 ? Anyway, this FJ was re...

If she wins enough games for contestants in the queue to pick up on her frugal wagering habits (2 for 2 at absolute minimum), she risks getting shot down by a small wager from a non-lock leader. If you think about it, though, any strategy if used often enough can be picked up on by contestants in t...

Do you actually believe that's going to happen? You're far more optimistic than I am.
Considering the first reactions on Reddit to today's result were "OMG explain Lisa's bet", yes, I do believe that's going to happen.

I'm sure that this is going to be a hot take with some of you, but I think that the game overall will be improved with a result like this, as opposed to a game where Lisa had just gone all-in. If Lisa just goes all-in here, nobody blinks an eye. But winning by $1? That might be enough to get more p...

Why did Alex rule against the male who said "Diego Rivera" but rule for Lisa when she just said Rivera? Yeah, I'm not sure about that. It sounded like he said the name correctly. He said "Diego Rivera" just fine. Problem is, he also said "Frido Kahla", not "Frida Kahlo", and that's why he was negged.

I've received an email about Los Angeles audition on April 10. Does anyone know if they are amicable to alternate audition dates? It's a bad day for me, but I don't want to throw away my shot!
Email them explaining your situation, see what they say.
