Re: Friday, February 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I find myself rooting for Colby in the finals because he didn't have as true a competition going into the ToC, then he gets thrown immediately into the deep end of the pool and he performs admirably. Gotta like that. Keith is the clear favorite, because of such the other two need to take advantage o...

Oh, so just give up then. Sorry, but true competitors don't give up until the game is over.

However, at game's end I would always shake the winner's hand.

Re: Friday, February 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'll give you three: (Maggie told us to leave ourselves with something in case that happened again.) But I was already dutifully informed that Keith would never Clavin FJ, but that doesn't mean he can't make some silly math error. Honestly, I'm not trying to be a jerk with this stuff, but for many ...

Re: Friday, February 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Although there was no reason for Jason and Paul not to bet everything on FJ. Forgive my ignorance, but why? It was a lock game they had no chance of winning. True, Keith *could* have Clavined his wager, but, honestly, this is the TOC, and he's earned his place there even before his performance in t...

Re: Friday, February 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Finally, good players having confidence in their abilities to take proper advantage of DD's. Sweet. Regardless, Ketih was by far the best player in this game. He deserved to win. Although there was no reason for Jason and Paul not to bet everything on FJ. DD's in Jeopardy are like blanks in Scrabble...

Colby played well from start to finish, was the only one to nail FJ, a deserving finalist.

Wagering was too passive on all the DD's.

Re: Interesting idea from the J! Facebook

Jeopardy needs fewer tournaments, not more. We're already over-saturated with them. The college tournament is viable as the contestants are comparable to the average adult contestant. The teen tournament is (sort of) viable because it's good for kids to think being smart (while on TV) is cool, I cou...

Good game by all.

Sad that Risky Business was a TS.

Thought Dave should have been more aggressive on the late DD. Those are a godsend that late in any game, gotta take advantage of such.

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The problem with that theory is that just because the scores are higher in your game doesn't necessarily mean that the other 4 QF games will show (or will have already shown) similar results. Maybe you and one or both of your opponents are just really sharp today, or maybe the categories just happe...

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

this year the scores were high and the FJs were on the easy side for a ToC. (not a coincidence.) but in general, the larger data suggests that ToC FJs are harder, on average, than "regular play" FJs. so even though the players are stronger, that doesn't necessarily mean you should let it all ride o...

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The idea behind wagering small is to improve your shot at a WC on a get while minimizing the damage on a miss. If you wager big and miss, you're toast. If you wager small and miss, then you still have a chance. So unless your get rate on FJs is very high, you're better off playing the odds and bett...

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

"I used to teach that" needs to become TPH's new mantra. I'd imagine Steph will tell us she thought she was toast upon seeing the FJ clue, and then did some serious celebrating. Pretty odd that 2 of the 3 didn't know the actual name of the statue. Now that all the quarterfinal matches have aired, I ...

Re: Monday, February 4, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got it by noticing that they were asking for a composer who did his last something-or-other at the age of 35. Of course, that doesn't *guarantee* it's Mozart, but I knew Mozart died at 35, so I went for it. Didn't watch the game, but I'm betting on..... 1791, Mozart composes The Magic Flute. On D...

$1,000-I honestly can't think of a way to reword this clue. But it mentioned neon, which i guess was supposed to lead lead you to Las Vegas and Nevada. I checked and the forum Mall is connected to Caesar's Palace, The mall was Neonopolis, which in my opinion does not automatically lead to Vegas. Lo...

The champ is definitely in the kitchen of all challengers during FJ wagering from now on. If you know what a anemometer is, FJ was cake. Otherwise it's a crapshoot. Doubt I'll be watching the next two weeks, just not the same. Nothing against the extremely bright kids who will be competing though. B...

Can't believe zinc and galvanization was a TS.

FJ offered no clues within the clue, just a piece of trivia you had to know.
