If one considers poker a sport, then it should be included.

Re: LL83: Learned League

A momentous day in the Pruss-Knobel household: cmp146 and I play each other in both the public Magnolia A and private JBoard rundles. :roll: Love triumphs over all. Loser gets to pack lunches tomorrow. Even in losing, I win: the kids have lunches provided at school today. HA! For Q1, I knew it was ...

Good luck to everyone this go-round. I'm swimming in the pool so must sit this one out.

Re: LL83: Learned League

I was surprised by the get rate on Markov: math is often one of the hardest categories, and Markov Chains are hardly high-school math. 35% is pretty high, considering! Where did the non-mathy people hear about Markov Chains? (No hope for me yesterday as I gave up a 9(5)... Assumed it was Spam, defe...

Re: Monday, December 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another very well-played game. Jennifer's buzzer mojo seemed off this game (either that, or she just came up against two other buzzer demons) and that allowed Kirby to find the DDs and get the lead going into FJ. My wife and I both went down the Bonanza rabbit hole as we both overlooked the TOM of "...

Okay, what IS a "wine-tasting consultant"? She explained this on an earlier episode. She's employed either by a winery or a distributor. She organizes wine tastings for groups where they get to try and, with luck, buy the wines she's offering. Yeah, it might not seem like an obvious place for winer...

Re: Thursday, December 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another fun game to watch. Jennifer is a very enjoyable champion and quite impressive. FJ was straightforward as I couldn't think of another anti-Communist female author with insight into Russia who was alive in the mid-20th C.

Jennifer is an impressive player, but for some reason subtle. She just goes about her business and the next thing you know she's racked up $20k!
Typical Michigander, Kirk! :lol:

Re: Wednesday, December 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought the judges were generous to give Jennifer credit for whatever she said instead of (Charles) Perrault. I turned on closed captions and they transcribed her response as “Pure-Oh”, whereas I’m pretty sure she was saying something closer to Pierrot. Maybe it was the right call for a foreign n...

My American History is over 85% and I get three for Teapot Dome?

A benefit of being old is you can get Suzy Quatro.
And if you're old and lived in the Detroit area for years (raises hand), she's an instaget.

My only two six packs of the season so far have come this week (Monday and Thursday), so I'm flying high right now. I've moved from 20th to 11th in my rundle over the last few days and I'm now right at my lifetime QPct. I'm expecting to crash back down to Earth at any time... That's pretty much my ...

For "Booknotes", I went with "Whassup?"
Since it was on C-SPAN I put Congressional Pages. The maddening thing is I'm sure that I've watched that program in the past.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Outlier? In the 42 matches from the beginning of LL82 through LL83/MD17, I had a grand total of 3 MCW's. Yesterday, in LL83/MD18 alone, I had 3 MCW's. Kosman koin said "no" when I chose between "Norwegian Wood" and "Nowhere Man." C'mon.... Nowhere Man sounded like a much better title for a novel, t...

Instaget FJ for me. Had I been spotted WA, Hanford would be an easy get, too, but I have the advantage of knowing most of the National Labs.

At least they aren't saying "a phenomena" yet. I see that one all the time.

She certainly isn't flashy, but certainly is fast Which is why we left like 19 clues on the board Monday, right? And I swear at one point there was a good 10 second pause before she managed to call out another clue on this episode. Sorry, I meant fast on the buzzer. She's consistently outbuzzed her...

Re: Tuesday, December 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So Jennifer punches her ticket to the TOC and stakes her claim as a top-caliber player. She certainly isn't flashy, but certainly is fast and has a good depth of knowledge. This was a fun game to watch, well played and with few TSs, though I did still pick up some Lach trash.

I didn't even know where to begin with "strategizing" on the Ivy League question but was leaning toward Cornell. Looks like I made the right choice. Cornell is the one that no one cares about, which means that it was definitely gonna sheep. Of the Ivies, Cornell, Penn and Columbia get the least res...
