Re: Wednesday, November 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm interested to see how Francois does today, he might be the dark horse in this thing while everyone focuses on James vs Emma. Francois has the most money earned so far through the first round with $34,300. If he scores another lopsided victory today it will be quite an interesting Thursday & Frid...

Re: Tuesday, November 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is there a Championship Game on Friday? Who would qualify for that one? Would it just be two people on that show, the 1st place from Thursday and the runner-up? If so, James and Emma could matchup again on Friday if things play out right. As with all J! Tournaments, the Final is over two days: Thur...

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Why bet so little in FJ if you've got nothing to gain and nothing to lose? The novelty of it? He had everything to gain if Emma missed FJ. He had every reason to believe that Emma would bet enough to shut him out, so his only chance of winning was a miss by Emma. With that in mind, he played to gua...

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The way I see this one is that if Nate and Laura talked about a game-plan to take down James they should have also agreed that if unsuccessful they would split 2nd & 3rd place money after the show so each of them would leave with $1500. With that deal in place and only because you are up against Ja...

Re: Friday, May 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It seemed to me that James probably knew Sun Valley right away and was setting up a joke. Pretty certain James was setting up a joke, the clue is "...resort with a bright NAME" Las Vegas Strip is not a bright NAME, it's a bright location, but the NAME has absolutely nothing to do with the clue, so ...

Re: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

You are correct Bob, you still have to answer the questions, so it's not just a matter of the stomach for betting big, which is why I questioned Mark on Jason's real chance to catch James, because even if he were to find the Daily Double, he still has to bet large AND answer the question correctly, ...

Re: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As good as James outplayed his opponents a route to defeat could be as simple as a miss on DD2 and an opponent in five figures finding and converting DD3 to have the lead for the FJ! round. It was all reasonably possible today. Since all of these shows were taped in February (or whenever) how aware...

Re: Monday, May 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As an aside it doesn't surprise me that the "aspect ratio" clue was at the bottom of the category. You don't have to visit many restaurants or waiting rooms to realize most people have zero clue that that's even a thing. I've seen so many stretched pictures that should be pillarboxed and squashed p...

I think when James finally loses I will have the same jaw-drop reaction I had when I saw Mike Tyson on the canvas on all fours looking for his mouthpiece during the Buster Douglas fight.

I'm fairly new to the board, how are you guys getting the show early? I'm in TN and the show doesn't air here until 3:30pm CDT.

Re: Friday, April 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What does everyone think "Hello Tuesday" meant in James' FJ response?
Do you think he was referring to 3 days prior to this show when he eclipsed $1m in earnings?

PS: How can I send a PM to someone? It's sitting in my outbox and never sends. Thanks

Re: Thursday, April 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another game so strange with $90K+ on the low end of what James could have won by going stronger than the 11Ks on DD2 & DD3. It's frightening to think how even more-staggering James's overall winnings would be if he didn't constantly leave money on the table that he could have safely wagered. And y...

Ummm James scored 90,812 this Monday, 4/22/2019 as well which ties himself for 5th place on Daily Winnings.

Re: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Alex Trebek earns $10,000,000.00 per season for hosting Jeopardy!, There are approximately 230 episodes per season, which calculates out to Alex earning $43,478.26 per episode. James earns almost double that per episode at $75k. Let that sink in for a bit...
