Re: James wouldn't have lost pre-James

Emma came in cold. She made that bet without having seen James play once. Sure. But she certainly is capable of dividing $2 million+/30+games Still, though. Emma has literally studied the game more than maybe three or four people here on JBoard. She knew what she was doing, James or no James. This....

James wouldn't have lost pre-James

It's a testament to James that the fundamental transformation of the game he brought about ultimately helped do him in. James had a relatively low Coryat, but only because the others were relatively high. Even so, he still led Emma by almost 5000. It was her true DD that made the difference, and I h...

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Assuming the things I've been reading are true... ...it's pretty interesting that a few random people on Facebook had been saying things like "mid-March" and, more specifically, March 12. Some research showed that episodes taped March 12 would be airing the week of June 3. It would be interesting i...

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

On a related topic, does anyone else believe that Holzhauer’s run is a gift for Alex? He is obviously enjoying the run though I think he enjoyed Jennings’ run more. Really? I get the sense that he can't wait for it to be over. I get this too. I think Ken was (is) much more amiable, while James seem...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I just got a DC invite for June 17th! Yay! Bad news is that I'm out of the country until the 19th...hopefully they have another day open. Boo! ...or it could be good news for the rest of us looking to get a DC audition. Seriously though, I hope they are willing to work with you given the relative d...

Re: Monday, April 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had no clue initially on FJ, but I did realize that the French "de" meant "of" and from the rest of the clue it was a fairly easy guess.

Adam can certainly hold his head high. Well-played game against one of the all-time greats.

There have been five different Bonds in that time span, but I don't think there's a common denominator in the title.

Another run of the mill $80k payday. This is normal, yet not normal. J! isn't this easy. Have I been watching a different game show all these years!? J! isn't this easy! I missed nearly all of KJ's run due to RL. Is this what it was like to watch? No, it was not. Ken had a lot of what we used to ca...

Re: A question about Coryat scoring...

That makes sense, but how are these scores "normally" determined? If you're watching and somebody rings in and knows it, you may have known it given an extra few seconds, but it becomes irrelevant once the answer is known. I know most questions are either you know it or you don't, but things like wo...

A question about Coryat scoring...

If you're doing this at home to evaluate where you are, isn't it highly dependent on the players? I've been trying to gauge my performance and there is a huge gap between the episodes available on YouTube with average players and the recent broadcast episodes.

Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

I think we learned that very aggressive wagering combined with solid Jeopardy fundamentals (buzzer technique and encyclopedic knowledge) can totally reshape how we think about winnings on the show. The only thing he really does new is bet aggressively on a consistent basis. That's not to say he's no...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

I managed at least 41, 42 if they count my half-typed answer for Buccaneer (not sure how far I was).

I guessed correctly on about ten of them, which doesn't give me a ton of confidence on another test. I only guessed wrong on one.

Pretty good result, all things considered, but also humbling.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

It didn't crash for me, but based on the videos from yesterday I'd say the difficulty was pretty similar. Maybe even harder.

Last year's test was easier, at least when I took it.
