This is the Jeopardy! Thread of Encompassment [RIP Alex Trebek]


Recommended Posts

It seems like there has been a rash of questionable wagering lately.  A lot of people who were ahead before final jeopardy have been losing, even after writing the correct question.  Many of these have been in the reruns from last year, but there have been some from the current season as well.  Have the dynamics of wagering strategy changed? 

It should be pretty straightforward, at least for the person in the lead - assume everyone will get the answer correct, and bet enough to cover the person in second place.  It seems that many are betting with the assumption that no one will get the correct question.  Are there stats somewhere that indicate that this is the more likely outcome?  Does Rainman post here?  I'm sure he would know.

Next week is the College Championship. Another year with no Longhorns.

Booooo! 

What is the silly "scratching cat" gesture that the current champion does at every opportunity? 

He draws one of the letters in his name so it looks like the paw print - maybe the Cincinnati Bearcats logo?

I've been catching up and just saw that episode. That tells me 2 things:

1. The guy clearly knows that being a furry is odd

2. He didn't take the time to figure out a good cover story for that that is.

Rookie mistake if you ask me.  He was a nice enough guy and we'll see him in the next TOC.

 

Loved the shout out we got this week.
