Re: Wednesday, October 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another rough game... The TOC can't come fast enough at this rate.

Re: Friday, October 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yuck, a victory below $5K SUCKS to see! (Though at least my man Daryn held on).

Re: Thursday, October 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm a Vegas native, so I'm glad to see Daryn win. I also liked his contestant interview talking about James as well. I also was happy to see a triple-get FJ for the first time in a while. Granted it was a pretty easy clue, but still, to go without a miss in FJ is always sweet. Hope Daryn goes on a l...

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FTR, I just want to state that the main reason why I don't think Susan will streak herself is because players who win with less than $10K generally do not last more than a day. Obviously there are exceptions to this (Gilbert Collins had a similar total on his first day and went on to qualify for th...

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ: should have thought of that. That's pretty much Jeopardy's favorite play to ask about. Said Neil Simon for lack of any better ideas. Rough FJ week for me... 1/5. Considering that "Paul Simon" was the correct response for a FJ clue earlier this week, it would've felt odd to have two FJ clues wit...

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wow, quite the stunning fall for Geoff after his great game last night. I don't know if he got overexcited about his victory to the point where he couldn't concentrate when he had to play the next game or if these categories just simply weren't his forte, but to go from having a runaway game to bein...

Re: Thursday, October 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That was a very impressive first showing for Geoff. His knowledge base and buzzer skills certainly seem like 5-game streak potential. I wish him retroactive good luck tomorrow and in the coming week!

Re: Tuesday, October 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was I the only one who found DD2 vaguely worded? "New evidence suggests that the QWERTY keyboard design may have sprung from telegraph operators translating this." I interpreted the "this" as asking for some kind of phrase, and could only come up with "S.O.S." As for the wager on DD3, who's going t...

Re: Tuesday, October 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Admittedly I may be spoiled by the fact that we've had two ultrachampions in one year, but I honestly think this game and the past three games before it have all been very bad. Between the huge numbers of unanswered clues, the small paydays, and the large amounts of incorrect responses, these games ...

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

Honestly if Alex decides to retire even by the end of this year, I will totally understand and be 100% supportive of his decision. It is sad what he's going through, and I wish he could continue hosting in spite of it, but pancreatic cancer is no joke and dealing with stuff like mouth sores and poor...

Re: Friday, September 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

And the Giant Killer curse returns in full force! Congrats to Laurel on a well played game, though it is a shame that Emma's streak carried no coattails for Gabe today. I will admit though, it is hard for me to go back to the "start at the top" approach after the greatness of James and Jason. Given ...

Well, Jason comes back this November to play for $250k.
I thought he wasn't gonna be in this year's TOC due to the July cutoff?

Re: Thursday, September 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

:/ Well, down goes Jeopardy Jason. It's a shame he didn't quite break or at least tie Julia's 20 win streak, but at least he dwarfed both her and David Madden's cash winnings. I'm honestly not surprised by the way he lost, though. Jason has gotten a lot of FJ's wrong (Granted most of them in triple ...

Re: Wednesday, September 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Very exciting game to watch all around. Of course, I'm glad Jason continues his streak and is now tied with Madden for number of wins (yet over $100K ahead of him in cash winnings), but Ted and Gairen were also both very strong competitors and I have no doubt that either of them probably could have ...

Instaget FJ, as I learned about this a few years ago back in 11th grade.

Great job to Jason for becoming only the third player in Jeopardy history to get to half a million dollars in regular play games! What an amazing run the guy's had.

Incredible how we have had 2 of the top 3 highest regular play Jeopardy cash winners in one year!
Eh, not that incredible; David Madden's run finished less than a year after Ken's did.
To each their own.
