    In spite of the final scores this was a well played game. All 3 gentleman were strong in certain categories. I loved the $5 wager on the DD. I was baffled by the miss on Josephine.

    Seems as though inoptimal wagering was done from first and second here. Didn’t matter as third won on a sole get, but would have lost on a triple stumper.

      why inoptimal? # 2 bet it all except 10 bucks and # 1 countered with the necessary amount to win, if both had been right. doug would have had 21.990 and eugene 22.095, so the wagers seem appropriate to me. a moot point however, since both struck out. how would you have bet?

    my, my, my… pele!!! she is acting up RIGHT NOW!!

    and so much for a triple solve….

    finally, i guess it should read 1774 in the last dd?

        i guess mariusz never considered hawaii for his vacation. i thought pele (not the soccer player…) would be more famous. had he gotten her right he would have ended up with 20.200 before fj and his logical bet would have been 5.791 (probably 5.800) and he would have won 26K even.

        before i hit the “show” button i was cringing when i saw he was wrong…..but then i live safely on a neighbor island from hawaii (big island). mauna kea (extinct), mauna loa (active) since kilauea is part of mauna loa and active with lava flow since 1983 WITHOUT ONE DAY of interruption. about 1,000 acres have been added to the south part of hawaii, despite the fact that most of the lava dropped into the ocean which is rather deep at the s/se edges, ca. 3,000 ft which equals approximately 1.000 meters. there are no “soft sloping beaches” at the southern part of the big island.. you have those in the resort areas, like waikiki, kaanapali or wailea on maui, kona on the west side of hawaii etc.

          maybe he didn’t know about Pele, but I bet he knew Josephine (and probably Maria Walewska, too). Too bad he didn’t get that DD.
