    Heartbreaking loss for Abigail.

    I got a little sidetracked doing some Sporcle quizzes and almost forgot to post the link to the extra clues.

    LINK: 8 clues including the TV Talk category

    Just like with another contestant that did not bet enough to be defeated by Eric from Canada. I was hoping Abby will bet more too I guess we have to see if nora can win tomorrow.

    Vince Carter was playing for the raptors but I wonder if he joined a different team, VJ?

    • VJ says:

      idk on Vince Carter, Lou. I don’t know much about sports and I wouldn’t have bet much on that category either.

    INoptimal wagering in FJ! kept Abigail from winning,, but oh well. 44/59 here

    • EricS says:

      I’m glad that you’re here to keep it real

    • Tom says:

      Well, the same strategy gave her the game the day before, when she otherwise would have lost it. She has nothing to complain about.

    • Tom says:

      It was kind of odd betting both days – you’d think she’d either bet enough to win if the second person got it right, or bet little enough that she’d win if she got it wrong and the others bet nothing. As it was, she could only win if the others got it wrong and bet something. Shrug…

      • VJ says:

        @Tom, I guess the decision you have to make if you’re not very good with a particular FJ category is bet big and hope for the best, or try to conserve and hope the others aren’t great in the category either.

        • EricS says:

          I think the category lends toward conservative wagering. I guess that it is the default for those who don’t understand basic game theory.

        • VJ says:

          But what is there to understand about basic game theory, Eric, if you think you’re going down no matter what they ask? Do you wanna go down in flames or just little sparks?

          Maybe you told me this before, but I can’t remember game theory any better than sports logos :D

  5. VJ says:

    The way the answers panned out on this one reminded me of that Saints/fleur-de-lis game back in 2014.

    And so much for my hopes for a long streak with Abigail, huh?

    • jacob ska says:

      VJ, I also thought of the Saints/fleur-de-lis fj clue. I think Abigail just got tired from holding her arm up continually to press the buzzer.
