Re: Monday, January 2, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Speaking of one TOCer beating another, did anyone besides me notice that Ryan Chaffee (who was beaten by Stephen Weingarten) was on tonight's Who's Still Standing? I just thought I'd mention. Dave, great job on a third (and hopefully not final) win. You made a very intelligent and strategic wager, w...

Now, THAT would be something else, but even 19 game-winner David Madden lost in his TOC semifinal.

Re: Tuesday, December 27, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

That's only true if both Jason and Niall had missed FJ. In that case, Niall's wager would have lost him a game he should have won. As things turned out, both Jason and Niall got FJ right. There was no way Niall could have won in that scenario without an irrational bet on Jason's part. Also, I'd say...

Re: Tuesday, December 27, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

So is it safe to say that those asserting that jason is "silver, but no higher" have since readjusted? Funny to me that you guys were arguing that and multiple boardies had to read it knowing that they'd run into the buzzsaw. As a general rule, I don't get into rating players, but I have not been i...

Re: Friday, December 9, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was very happy to see Drew win the game. His first round went poorly (less than $1,000), but he changed his buzzer technique (crossed his arms) and, at least in terms of score (maybe even coryat) had the best Double Jeopardy Round of the three. If his first round had been like that, he would have ...

Re: Tuesday, December 6, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Rich had an unbelievably commanding lead throughout most of the Double Jeopardy round, and as such, I felt very, very sorry for his large Daily Double loss and eventual loss of the lead. It's comforting in a way, however, to know that even if he had risked close to nothing on the second Daily Double...

Re: Thursday, October 6, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

Well, our showing here was pre-empted by a lottery...something.... but I was happily able to find out that Joon pulled out another good game. Bravo! You have really put up an impressive performance considering the extrenuating circumstances to be a Tournament qualifier. Three four-day winners have a...

Re: Wednesday, October 5, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

That was a very tight game. You are a very bright player, Mr. Pahk. You have the ability to make up deficits quickly (a $2,400 and $3,000 Daily Double) and came out on top by just a hair. I'm rooting for at least one more win for you in order to make you an "inductee" into the Tournament of Champion...

Tomorrow's a Day Away!

I was just wondering...what everyone is looking forward to this twenty-eighth season of Jeopardy? Tomorrow is the premier of the season for which I have been waiting about a month and a half for.

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

Seeing as how I am a large "Tourney" fan (as I call it), I couldn't help reading (or looking for) this thread. I made my own WordPad ToC chart before I came here. Haha. These charts are so much better. Normally, I'd post who I'm rooting for...but it hasn't even taken place yet. I was really hoping M...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

Hello, and good evening! My name is Billy, and I'm from Michigan. I'm a teenager, and I've recently been looking for Jeopardy forums to get my "fix" during the month or two of re-runs. Of course, I do hope to be posting here longer than just the re-run period. I very first (very first?) started watc...
