Re: Friday, April 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another run of the mill $80k payday. This is normal, yet not normal. J! isn't this easy. Have I been watching a different game show all these years!? J! isn't this easy! I missed nearly all of KJ's run due to RL. Is this what it was like to watch? No, it was not. Ken had a lot of what we used to ca...

Re: A question about Coryat scoring...

That makes sense, but how are these scores "normally" determined? If you're watching and somebody rings in and knows it, you may have known it given an extra few seconds, but it becomes irrelevant once the answer is known. I know most questions are either you know it or you don't, but things like wo...

A question about Coryat scoring...

If you're doing this at home to evaluate where you are, isn't it highly dependent on the players? I've been trying to gauge my performance and there is a huge gap between the episodes available on YouTube with average players and the recent broadcast episodes.

Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

I think we learned that very aggressive wagering combined with solid Jeopardy fundamentals (buzzer technique and encyclopedic knowledge) can totally reshape how we think about winnings on the show. The only thing he really does new is bet aggressively on a consistent basis. That's not to say he's no...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

I managed at least 41, 42 if they count my half-typed answer for Buccaneer (not sure how far I was).

I guessed correctly on about ten of them, which doesn't give me a ton of confidence on another test. I only guessed wrong on one.

Pretty good result, all things considered, but also humbling.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

It didn't crash for me, but based on the videos from yesterday I'd say the difficulty was pretty similar. Maybe even harder.

Last year's test was easier, at least when I took it.
