So what was the point of the champ's wager?

Math errors happen?
Lack of wagering theory happens?

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

Apparently, Ken Jennings announced he does not plan to return to the Jeopardy! set after the GOAT tournament. Really? I'd love to see the source of that... https://www.seattletimes.com/entertainment/tv/ken-jennings-the-greatest-of-all-time-on-jeopardy-says-hes-likely-done-competing-on-the-show/

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

At the risk of getting even more out of context and being branded a hater, I felt bad making a lazy observation. I'm just trying to reveal the optics as seen by a casual viewer, especially the ESPN driven demo that came to watch James. The rest was a thumping. Although we (boardies) know that final...

He loses for the first time ever and suddenly the game has passed him by? I respectfully disagree.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

We've learned that James's strategy is very effective at knocking out middle-aged women from Dubuque I know multiple middle-aged women who absolutely annihilate at trivia. If I wanted this kind of ignorance I would read the Facebook groups. There's a reason I've got certain people on ignore here. B...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The weird thing is my DVR kept recording last night's primetime sitcoms thinking it was GOAT match #5. Yep, mine too. Just once again shows that those in charge of such things are ignorant and/or lazy. First they spoiled it, then once all had seen it they fixed it. Then they leave it for at least a...

Re: J! in the Media

Two Washington Post articles: Ken Jennings talks James Holzhauer ‘feud,’ Brad Rutter’s losses and that brutal Bloomberg tweet ‘Jeopardy!’ has named its Greatest of All Time. But why did it have to go there? Got a laugh out of that 2nd article, “The Fairy Queen”. And it wasn’t in regards to the wife...

Re: Your prediction for GOAT tonight Jan. 14

Originally the 4th game was supposed to air on Friday with a possible game 7 on Thursday. Then, with no explanation, game 4 was quietly moved to Tuesday with a possible game 7 slated for Friday. So when multiple cable companies throughout the country had normal programming listed for this Wednesday...

Also, goalie -feels- more like a $200 clue response. Just sayin. :lol: True, but 20 goals in a season for goalies? In the history of the NHL, only 15 goals total have been scored by goalies.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In part 1, Alex said they started writing before he finished reading the clue. Is this really possible? Does this mean contestants have more than 30 seconds to write their answers? I don't suspect this would often be of any consequence, but would be good to know. It's no different from a regular cl...

I think we can all agree that Karen's the best player of the decade.
I might suggest using the archive to check out FJ in game 2 way back in 1984. :D

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wonder about the strategy of a true DD every time... If your success rate is low, you lose. Going all in didn't work for Brad, so he might want to change the strategy. On the other hand, it didn't seem to slow James or Ken down. Maybe Brad just needs to know more stuff? (I can't believe I'm sayin...

Re: GOAT Tournament: The Return of Super Jeopardy!-Style Points

According to James's Facebook page, each GOAT episode is going to last an hour instead of the usual half-hour. I just did some research, and found out that episodes will be an hour long because a match covers two games. The person with the highest combined score from both games wins a match, just l...

Mark: was your other precall adapted to a 1975 Oscar-winning movie?
I was thinking Kansas.

Trying to figure out why Kristin would throw away $1k with her FJ wager. Although there are times and contestants where I would take a flyer like this on bad math under the lights.

Re: Friday, January 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The newbies in the pool will not like hearing there is a 7xer reigning. I'm sure today's challengers did not like hearing there was a 6x champ. But one would think when faced with that daunting a task a challenger would wager more than $1k out of $4600 on a DD in the first round. Had he answered th...
