wow, so glad he didnt have the £100,000

i do not blame him at all for dealing, it was so dangerous and 1 box would have ended it!

anyways £1,000 is still a good sum, enjoy it Michael!

13 - Anne - £50


Shouldn't box 13 be the £100, since Michael's box has £50?

WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT DEAL? lol tsk tsk that was a daft thing to do really and it cost him 30 grand.
I was just preparing my speech on weak deals just now in preperation of expecting the 100K to be in his box! But he kept his dignity there with it not being in there.

Poor deal and he paid for it by 29K and was just lucky at the end the 100K was not there.

I bet H and KP will be glad he dealt when he did!

That 9-box board was absolutely amazing to see, of course for all the wrong reasons.

Although I wouldn't have taken the £1,000 I would have been so scared of finding that last red, I wouldn't have lasted too long in this game. The £9,000 would definitely have had me out.

A field day for the gamblers, maybe. But he still made a very cautious decision and even if it was by the smallest of margins, he still beat the Banker!

Well done, Michael!

1K was nothing really iof you can turn down 9 you can damn sure turn down 1 on a all or nothing board all those blues screaming there was everything to gain.

At least he apologised to us all so fair enough for that!

What difference would it have really made if he had the £100k? This is the one part of the game where he really doesn't have an influence - he can choose boxes (that's random anyway) and he can decide whether to deal or no deal. The fact that he had £50 is a good thing but he was just as likely to have the £100k, so his deal wouldn't have been any worse in terms of what he ultimately went away with if he'd had £100k really. Anyway, it stopped you having a nasty rant, so it's good. :P

I'm not actually... I thought it was a bit of a wasted opportunity as he could've won money which wasn't far off £1k, even if he'd lost £100k, what with high blues still being on the board. And the money obviously meant a lot to him... so if he'd won a high blue, surely it wouldn't be too bad having turned down £1k. :?

Anyway I thought he was a bit boring when he was on the wings to be honest :shock: (probably due to editing, the only thing I can remember him doing is commenting on how he had big numbers), but I liked him in his game and him and his wife made a great double act. A strange deal, but enjoy the money Michael!

Hell really has frozen you did NOT want him to deal at 1k either :-D
It would not have been a angry rant just a speech on paying for foolish decisions especially when the decision is a no brainer to 99% of people.

Had his offer been higher it might be a bit more deliberative but ONLY 1K
and all those blues there screaming to be hit 99% of people would have gone at LEAST one more round!

I personally would have got to 30K then split!

Just goes to show, that early deals on a 1-box game can cost you big later on...

Well I'm stunned. What a farce of a deal. He might as well gone on no matter what with that board at 8 box. To throw in the towel for the sake of £1000 beggars belief.

There were so many blues he was bound to hit them and 3 in a row was very likely. Mind you when Noel thought Michael and wife would be playing as a team my heart sank and when she came down at the 2nd offer I knew what we were in for. The dithering at the 2nd offer was ominous and with 3 reds left at 11 box I thought he would probably clutch at any decent offer. I wasn't prepared for a pathetic £1000 deal though.

The Banker must have laughed himself silly at the proveout. Never has such a large amount been squandered by such a weak cop out. My biggest disappointment was that the £100k wasn't in his box as it would have served him right. Quite frankly it makes my blood boil to think of the brave players who have suffered lousy boards and never had a chance whilst this <deleted> wasted a great opportunity for the sake of a grand.

I know today isn't the worst technical banker win in terms of percentage but is dealing for £29K less than the peak offer when you deal for more than the box amount a new record in terms of monetary loss?

What a strange game that was - hard to understand that deal at all, I mean there's little difference between £1,000 and the high blues, and he would get to several times that amount even by going just one more round and not hitting the big one, which was odds-on. If he'd been offered a few thousand it might have made sense, but that was basically a forcing offer and despite what the Banker said at the next call, I can't believe he really expected him to take it!

It was clearly just down to a feeling that his luck was completely out - it's just the reverse of what happens when someone can't walk away from a strong board because they feel it's their day and then it collapses. At least the £100,000 wasn't in his box or it would have been the most spectacular OPL ever.

For a while though it looked like making history for another reason - at the last break I was thinking, all-blue final eight? All-blue squashdown? I can't think of another game with only one red left at the start of part 3 anyway!

OH DEAR!

I was eating my tea during that and I literally choked on it when he said DEAL. How on earth can you risk selling 100k for 1k? Even if he'd hit the 100k first box after dealing it still would have been rubbish due to being offered £9,191 a round earlier. You'd have regrest whatever happened next, but no-dealing, you'd at least have the chance to wash them away - he could have got back to what he turned down in 3 boxes. It was an unbelievable forcing offer and he took it! I'm not a hardened Wakeyist by any means but I laughed at every blue in the proveout! Sorry if that upsets anyone but I did.

Even the wife wanted him to go on!!

Yesteray's game was one of the best ever due the roller-coasterness of it, today's was one of the worst. What I will say is that I thought it was one of the best ever banker performances in thinking he could get him to deal for such a low figure. After totally misreading Charly yesterday, he read Michael like a book.

I think it's time to update the "Most painful red win" thread!

I think some of those who have dealt on boards with the 250k and not much else, avoided it to 2-box, but not actually had it in their box, such as David W, Clumsy Tom, and Dog-Dog Lucy have had much bigger gaps - but they did at least deal for large tempting offers!

Oo er, Sod's law his luck had to change just as he dealt, but thank goodness he didn't have £100,000 in his box! Shame he didn't go on to win more but I can understand why he dealt at £1,000, I think he just had enough and wanted to get out of the game. £1,000 is still alot of money and more than what others have gone away with. Welldone Michael, enjoy the money! :D

Interesting game for all the wrong reasons, it was one of them games where you just seem to hit red after red and that your luck won't change and then when Michael dealt at £1,000 I was surpised to say least, though I suppose I can understand why, but for me I would of gone at least till there was a five figure offer. Because as luck would have it Michael would of actually ended up with two all blue rounds and a lot more money.

But well done Michael on the £1,000 it just wasn't your lucky day.

Now I usually understand dealing at a below-average offer on a precarious board, but today's game really took that to the extreme.

The chances of opening three blues in the next round meant it was easily worth turning down £1,000. Also, the fact that the offer was less than the record low £6,000 that Christine paid for the £100k would be enough for an instant no-deal in my book.

At least there was the slight relief that he only had a blue in his box. Missing out on £29k was punishment enough for his decision. If he'd had the £100k, I dread to think what would have happened.
