When I clicked on the Season 36 link, Google Translate asked me if I wanted to translate it. It assumed it was Norwegian. I couldn't figure out what triggered it.

Oops...I didn't indicate that I found this funny and just wanted to share.

^ One of the contestants on that show, Keith Bush, posted highlights of his games on YouTube a few years ago.

okay. It's nice that his 1st game is up on the Internet Archive in full. He would win his 2nd game on 9/22/95 but lost on 9/25/95 to Linda Roberts.

I always thought this was funny, too. I wish I knew what triggered it and what I could do, coding-wise, to forfend against it.

I just clicked the link in Chrome and there was no translate prompt.

I have a little time here at work, so I've started this game, but any other archivist can take the following games if they want. I've still got a pretty healthy queue at home.

9/25/92 is in: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6595

You can see player pics of Judy Deck, Tom Hughes and Marty Brophy here: https://archive.org/details/jeopardysep ... online.com

I heard Kenner and Upper Jay for the challenger towns. If someone has another opinion then let me know.

Both times I typed "Leopard" my fingers and brain had other ideas as I reflexively added a Y at the end.

Good game with only 5 TS clues and tough break for Tom not knowing at the time he needed a smaller bet at DD3 on clue 29.

Alex being Alex in commenting on wrong guesses by the players.

Correct on both counts.

I think I would have bet $500 on that DD. They allowed co-champs at the time so that way I don’t get eliminated on a miss and being tied means I get to return as long as I get FJ.

In this particular case, it would have worked out better to bet $500.
But, it is important to note that whether co-champs are allowed or not, being tied for the lead is still a disadvantage versus having a sole lead. If you are tied, unless you are willing to risk losing due to underwagering, you are forced to bet it all on FJ, guaranteeing a loss if you miss.Whereas with a sole lead, you can leave some behind and still cover a double-up.
So, you might consider wagering for the tie in some cases, but it was never ideal.
That is why I always ask when people talk about colluding to tie, if they mean colluding to enter FJ tied. That is a suicide move under any set of rules and nothing S&P should be concerned about, given the double loss possibility.

Of course, today I think it virtually never makes sense to wager for a tie on a DD. In fact, I think it almost bordered on obnoxious for Alex to bait Felicity to cause a three-way pre-DJ tie on Friday.

If he had gone into FJ with a slight lead, he would still have to bet almost all of it on FJ. But I agree I wouldn’t be seeking out a tie unless the math demanded it, such as in this scenario.

Yeah, the obvious point is that if you hit a late DD in first place and you lead your nearest opponent by more than the remaining clues on the board, it's poor strategy to wager more than your lead minus the value of the remaining clues (if you're not going for a lock, anyway). A similar move by her opponent (followed by her snatching up the two $1,000 clues afterward) sealed India Cooper's fifth victory. Though I should be fair and note Kurt led $8,400 to $4,600 when he bet $2,000 on his last DD, so he was at least shooting for lock territory. It would have been a tenuous spot, so I wonder if he was anticipating that he and India would split the remaining $2,000, and therefore aimed for having a $11,400 to $5,600 lock when the smoke cleared. If that was the case, the margin of the lock he aimed for ended up being the margin by which he missed becoming a co-champion and returning alone, and he probably kicked himself for rounding up.
