    Oh, Michael!

    “The player in the distant 3rd…”, where did I hear that before, like, dozens of times? Lol.

      His double up in this game proves that he has the heart and his non-arcaic clue-value choice shows that he has the understanding to come back.

        Admittedly, I was hoping for a tougher FJ (assuming the CotD is the FJ).

        Oh, I don’t doubt that Michael could make a comeback, he’s an amazing player (and if luck also helps along).

        I just can’t help laughing whenever I know what Alex is gonna say before he says it (“no harm no foul”, “they have to guard against each other” , etc). Yeah, I know it’s part of his job, and I’m not being malicious— it just tickles me. :)

    Michael jumping around the board backfired on him tonight. It also hit me that he played in the same game as Sharath before in which he won the game. However, Sharath was a wild card from that same game. So Sharath a sophomore leads 2 juniors going into tomorrow’s game.

    Should be exciting tomorrow because Alec is good also. I think the categories make a difference too. If some of the categories are in a particular player’s wheelhouse that player will have a clear competitive advantage. Tomorrow is must see tv for me.

      Sharath is now a junior, while Alec and Michael B. are now seniors.

      Speaking of Sharath, the sophomore, leading the 2 juniors, the last time we had a Teen Tournament, we, of course, had 2 juniors and 1 sophomore, and 1 of the 2 juniors was in the best position heading into the Teen Tournament Finale, while the sophomore was in the worst position to be in heading into the Teen Tournament Finale. This time, the sophomore is in the best position to be in, while 1 of the 2 juniors is in the worst position to be in, but in any event, I think Michael, Sharath & Alec handled the 1st half of the finals very well. We’ll see how tomorrow goes, the Teen Tournament Finale. BTW, I’m a junior, but in college, not in high school.

    Ah well, yet another 3/3 prediction shot down. Just like the buzzer war I was anticipating between Alex and Michael, it never came to pass. LOL. Congrats to Sharath. That’s a helluva nice advantage going into tomorrow’s match.

    I’ve got 10 more clues from the match up now (LINK)

    It was pretty funny when no one buzzed in on the $800 clue in the Pixel Girls category (who thinks up these titles?!) Alex said “Well, that stopped them.” It was the only one though.

    Against a player like Sharath (20,000 pure Coryat into FJ), Michael had the right theory, while Alec had the right answers.
