Re: Thursday, June 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Salome's total of $32,800 is the fourth-highest second place finish in Jeopardy! history, trailing only the scores obtained by James Holzhauer victims Nate Scheffey and Adam Levin (the latter of whom currently holds the title for highest second place finish pe...

Re: Thursday, June 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I feel like I remember(possibly from this board?) Someone once saying that in certain finals, instructions are sometimes given pre final that simply a surname is not sufficient. Does anyone know or have any indication that this may have happened? I'm assuming simply Guthrie would not have been acce...

How many times has this happened where Alex skips a contestant interview? I can only think of one other:
He skipped two in this game: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=2452 (see Wanda's player page for the details).

Re: Monday, May 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

With the game now archived, we see the players did indeed go 58-0-2 with 3/3 in FJ. Is that a record for most total correct responses without a miss? (Paging cheezyguy). Last Tuesday's game also had 61 correct responses and no misses. The contestants on May 1 combined for 59 right and 0 wrong. The ...

Here's something I'm curious about: Adam's Coryat was $17,000, which was quite good, especially for a runner-up. What is the record for highest Coryat by a contestant who finished second? $25,600 , set by Reid Setzer just one month ago. The known record for pre-doubled values is $14,000 , by Bob Wa...

Here's one for cheezguyty and his research powers: James ran WHAT DAY IS THAT SONG? going from bottoms up from 2000 to 400. Anyone else have that feat in their book of accomplishments? I found 28 past occurrences of a bottoms-up category run by 19 different contestants (spoiled for length): 1989-02...

Question for cheezguyty: I know that Liz Haigney Lynch went through her entire 3-game run in June 2016 without a buzzer neg (only missing her last Final Jeopardy). Do you have the ability to determine if anyone has had 3 full consecutive games (including Final) with 0 negs? I'm almost certain that ...

I agree that James has settled all question of whether he deserves to be ranked among the greatest of the superchamps. My question, for those of you know who keep track of such things, is how does James's average Coryat compare to the best ever? Here's everyone with an average Coryat of at least $2...

Like Mark, I was pleased to get the Karmann-Ghia LT in a game that had precious little LT available. And I felt awful for Anna, who had a horrible draw of opponents. For those of us trying to get on the show, getting The Call only to end up sandwiched between 2 buzzsaws is a nightmare scenario. Wit...

Did that question about the heart really require a 4-part response, i.e. RA, LA, RV, LV? What a mouthful! I was thinking the same, and it made me curious about other clues that have also required a lengthy list in the response (eg. "These five continents...", "These eight elements...") Any takers o...
