Re: 2019 TOC Updates

The seven 4-time winners who didn't make the cut this time are going to be in the next TOC, right? I assume they were notified of this. So I don't understand why Emma would be taking a spot away from a deserving person if that person (and six others) will get the opportunity to play again next year...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Best Ever Trivia Show" [Spoilers]

... I added a line on Saran's page: http://www.j-archive.com/showplayer.php?player_id=4150 ... I met and played pub trivia with her a few years back. She was introduced to me as "Saran". At one point, she, I, and the venerable Rex Kramer played on the same team. I remember Rex showing her her games...

ABC Nightline came by to O’Brien’s last night to gawk at Jeopardy! folk doing trivia in the wake of Jackie Fuchs’ LA Magazine article linked above.

Re: Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Also wanted to point out: funny coincidence that James' total after today ($566,660) is very close to what the theoretical maximum of what one could earn in one game of Jeopardy! is ($566,400), assuming all 3 DD's in the top row. So it only took James 9x the time.

James said M-M-M for the 3-letter maker of Scotch tape. I said 3M. Same thing? Never heard MMM
It was asking for the NYSE symbol, which is MMM, not 3M (NYSE symbols can't have numbers, I don't think).

Re: Friday, February 5, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Poor Noah. Even knowing that $15,800 was the highest CC WildCard cutoff wouldn't have helped, as an $801 wager would have seemed sensible but even still have been fatal.

And, yes, it bears repeating that all tournament contestants are kept in the dark about previous wild card scores.

Re: Friday, February 5, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The results of one game never prove or disprove wagering strategy, but tonight's was the perfect example of why in a QF game from behind you either wager nothing or everything. Ziad (hopefully) realized that and now he's in. Noah did not, tried to get cutesy, and now he's on the outside looking in....

Re: 500 Questions [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

What if someone gets the 48th or 49th question right and the challenger is just there to play out the string. Then one of the last two questions is a Battle? What incentive would they have to even try to win other than pride or just trying to screw over the other player? I figure that they have an ...
