Re: Thursday, April 3, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ken was probably the player who most needed to deliver, and deliver he did. Great job. When I went to the taping and sat across the aisle from "Contestant Row", I kind of let my gaze go off a couple of times in Ken's direction. He sat behind almost all of the other contestants and not next to any o...

Re: Friday, March 14, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Anyone else think of this infamous Final? Yes, and I cursed the fact that knowledge acquired from it couldn't help me here. I vaguely remembered it, and unless I'm not seeing something right, doesn't this FJ make that one even infamouser?* How was Olivier not a correct answer to the 2006 one? * I k...

Re: Which players have played a Game 10?

And Wednesday the highest frequency, along with Tuesday and Friday in second. Wednesday and Friday can be readily explained, fatigue at the end morning or afternoon tapings, but *shrug* @ Tuesday.

Re: Friday, February 21, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It was odd Alex didn't mention Kevin would not play FJ until the end. It was awkward with him just standing there. I forget if Hans stayed for his first FJ. On day 2 it definitely makes sense to let the contestant stick around. I do kind of wish they let Kevin play FJ just for kicks. What would be ...

Re: Monday, February 10, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have no dog in this fight but just a tangential point that I bet there would be a good number of laymen and even perhaps Jeopardy contestants that would still misidentify the island of Great Britain as "England" or "United Kingdom". "England" has been accepted for the UK on the show, as has "Russ...

oops- I thought there was no tie-breaker in the QFs, only semis and finals. You mean they both would not have advanced had she gone all-in? There needs to be a QF winner, so yes, there would have been a tiebreaker. There was a TT recently I believe where a girl in first place with $20k way overbet ...

Re: Tuesday, February 11, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I might've considered November as a hint briefly, but after I failed to think of anything important that could happen in November, I rejected the November date as extraneous clutter, and thought, "oh well, just another completely TOM-free 'you know it or you don't' clue". Even though I know full we...

Re: Tuesday, February 11, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Interesting betting situation for Sarah. I'm of the opinion that in a quarterfinal situation, any sub-$10k score should just go all in, and it would have had a double benefit of giving her a shot at winning the game.

Stanford boy isn't in the tournament either, if I'm not mistaken? Wonder what shenanigans went down.

James is not out of the running yet. $0 wild cards have happened before, albeit in ToC's with significantly harder clues. Then again, after that FJ triple stumper, who knows with this crew...

Re: Has anyone been to TCONA or considering going? Tell me about your experience

It's a great time! There are events from mid-morning all the way up to and past midnight. Like others have reiterated above, there are team and individual events, and usually some downtime here and there that you can go up to your hotel room and take a nap if need be or play a few slots. This past y...

Re: Wednesday, February 5, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was hoping they'd have a clue about a girl falling down a well. There was, actually. Baby Jessica was the $2K clue and Leslie got it to rapturous applause and laughter in the audience, but they had to throw it out after Alex got so excited and accidentally blurted out the answer. The test tube ba...

Nope, happened to me in the audience, too. Cliff Galiher saw I'd written down "The Lottery" and nudged me to remind me what the clue was looking for but I just gave him a clueless "IDK" look.
