Fourth Podium Poll for Thursday, June 23, 2022

Post by opusthepenguin »

Yesterday looked like it shouldn't be tough but yielded few fourth podium wins. Today, I predict the opposite. Jeff's got $20,000 going into FJ, but he's totally catchable. All you need is $10,001 plus a get on this FJ. There's $15,000 in trash available plus you can argue you get another $1000 if you got dragonfly and thus feel entitled to the DD that came next. And if Jeff didn't get that DD, that sets him back $1400 at the end of SJ which has an unpredictable effect on his wager when he uncovers DD2 and misses which has a doubly unpredictable effect on how much he has to go all-in with on DD3, so forget that rabbit trail.

SCORES GOING INTO FJ

Jeff Weinstock: 20000 - missed FJ
Whitney Wood: 7600 - missed FJ
Andrew Lewis: 11000 - missed FJ

$11,600 assuming I really would've rung in on Mount Kenya. I'm still not sure if I should count that. But If I do, I bet enough on FJ to pass Jeff and win the game.

Maybe they got confused by the Rockies but none of them knowing Edwin Drood = Dickens? Headscratcher.

Wikipedia says the Pennine Alps are "Not to be confused with Pennines or Apennines". Who are they kidding? Of course they are.

$10,800 including $1,000 for the first DD, but no FJ so probably no good. (At least I made note of "admiral" while there was still time, unlike the Trafalgar FJ earlier this month.)

I wonder when other players at home consider the "4th podium" to you also include DDs that are missed by (of course) only one player. (I usually don't.)

But without those, in today's game I racked up $6,200 in LT plus sole get on FJ, not nearly enough to cover a fine job by the defending champ.

I also said Wasatch, but it's actually in the Uintas.

I tend not to, but I like to put the option in when a DD comes right after a TS. It's not a clean fourth podium win if you need those points, but it can be fun to speculate. One variable, of course, is that you can't be sure that you would have chosen the same clue if you had gained control of the board.

If I count the DD for $1,000, I get to exactly $20,000. Fourth podium tie! (But actually, if we give DD1 to the fourth podium, Jeff presumably ends up with less than $20,000. Hypotheticals FT(4P)W!)

10200, but no FJ so nuts.
(I smileyed DD1, but it added zero to my total anyway)

Juliet (!), novel, zipper, Mt. Kenya, Earp, The Boys, draft, Balkans, Rockies (!!), Dickens

(Also got the devil's advocate DD but not counting that toward my score.)

That's $10,400. Went with the right half of the right quote for the win.
