boardreader: old Sony board archive?

I stumbled across a site that may be an avenue toward recovering some of the lost info from the old Sony board.

example: http://boardreader.com/thread/Monday_Ja ... X11yl.html

Happy hunting.

Re: Tuesday, November 15, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Roger, you are by far one of Jeopardy's best known players now, and clearly a force to reckon with. Someday, if we ever have a 2nd Ultimate Tournament, which could be 20 years from now for all we know[...] Well, Alex's current contract is up in two years, which would coincide with J!'s 30th season....

Re: Friday, November 11, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well there we go. Pre-final, and ignoring daily doubles(Don't know how wagering would ahve been in a non lock), it actually seemed like Mark might have cruised to a victory here, which I'm actually not sure I like the way it turned out because it awarded a couple very aggressive moves rather than t...

Re: Tuesday, November 8, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

According to Facebook, Justin plays Mark and Erin tomorrow. I got nothin' on the other two groupings. According to Twitter, it's Tom, Erin, and Justin tomorrow. And According to Twitter, it's Roger and Joon on Friday. I'd imagine that Kara won't play Roger twice in a row, so she's probably on Thurs...

Re: Friday, November 4, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS

Got this FJ right on a "Could it be..?" guess, and as I try to recall the early part of the week, this may have saved me from clicking that dreaded box on the poll. I'll know more tomorrow. Don't feel like looking back. Nice win, Joon! And boo to Tom (or was it John?) for not saying "I'd like to ma...

Re: Thursday, November 3, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILER

I like your logic in a normal game, but not in a tournament QF. He's already put the "real game" (advancing to the next round) away with a score of $23K. Of course, it's easier to see that from the comfort of one's sofa than from behind a podium. I agree with you in principle, but there are other m...

Re: Thursday, November 3, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILER

Congrats to Roger on an outstanding game. To go 24/2 in the DJ round against stiff competition... that's one for the ages. Re: the high wager -- I think even good players are too conservative with their DD wagers (in general). If you know that you're >90% in a category (as Roger must be in this spot...

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

This is a really really interesting FJ wagering scenario to me. Liz pretty much has two options: $6001 to cover a double-up by Lanny, or $6000 to offer a tie on Lanny's double-up. A correct response will give Liz $13601 or $13600, and an incorrect response will leave her with $1599 or $1600. She'll ...

Re: 2010-11 Tournament of Champions Standings (spoilers)

As interesting as ranking the ToC contestants is, trying to figure out what the QF match-ups "should" be might be fun, too. If you ruled TPTB, and assuming that the match-ups aren't truly random, what would your match-ups be (given the current field)? Keep in mind that choices might be made accordin...
