Brad is younger than me, as well, and Ken is only a couple of weeks older. I am pleased that decrepit old folks such as myself can still kick ass on quiz shows.

Re: Contestants for Season 29 TOC

No, that isn't what I was thinking of. I was referring to how Nick calculated the odds etc in the TOC standings. Granted he started that because he'd been a player, but I enjoyed it. I felt so full of myself for being all quantitative with that list... until Roger sent me a link to the video about ...

Okay, after a gentle (and totally warranted) prompt, I've attempted to update the appearance list at the top of this thread. If I've missed anyone, either upcoming or already-aired, please let me know via PM or something.

Re: Thursday, November 10, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Congrats to Buddy for hanging in there in a very tough game! And seeing someone who was expressive as you were on stage is a nice change; most contestants (myself very much included) don't seem to be able to relax enough to show a genuine emotion stronger than "mild disappointment" or "moderate happ...

Re: Tuesday, October 18, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOIL

So is there any chance a small wager (playing for the triple stumper) was the best play (for both 2nd and 3rd)? In my opinion, it's a pretty tough ask to expect lanny to bet exactly 5200. The contestants aren't game theory experts, after all. I don't expect Jeopardy contestants to be game theory ex...

Re: The Rankest Thread Imaginable

My wife just finished watching the series Edward the King, a 13-hour biography of Edward VII, of which approximately 6 hours is occupied by the recitation of the titles of the likes of Edward, Queen Victoria, and Kaiser Wilhelm II. In that spirit, I would like the title "Jeopardy Champion, Loyal Je...

I'll update my probability estimates when Joon finally loses. I believe he's already admitted to playing in the ToC; so, as hard as it is to believe given his combination of buzzer speed, aggressive DD wagering, and excellent luck, it must have happened eventually. I expect that the estimates will b...

Re: Tuesday, October 4, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

You'd think Alex would have remembered Roger Craig's record win. I wonder how many individual contestants he actually remembers besides Ken Jennings. Two more wins and Joon will be meeting Roger :) Actually, given that the ToC is already in the can, two more wins and he already will have met Roger!...

Congratulations, Joon! That was a very well-played game against a couple of very tough opponents. And while I know that looks can be deceiving, you certainly seemed calm and collected up there.

About the message board, I wouldn't mind staying here forever because after all, since JBoard's debut in early July, how many one-time newbie posters came here and started a special thread to complain about something?

Re: Tuesday, September 27, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

Our first contestant: Disasters $800 (first round). "Blimp" for "dirigible" (or whatever Joe said ;) )? Personally, I would neg it -- blimps are non-rigid and no more than a giant balloon, while dirigibles are rigid -- but that doesn't mean that the show wouldn't consider them all the same. I said ...
