What a fascinating 10 minutes viewing. Was flicking between the Israel/Russia game and DOND with 2 complete opposite emotions within 2 minutes. The ecstasy of Israel scoring (and yes I know England are rubbish but the rules say that the 2 best teams go through and if England avoid losing midweek, they will have finished in the top 2) followed by the complete agony of this game.

I would probably have dealt at 5 box but I respect Mario's decision.

I personally think he got a bit greedy, and the offer was dealable, so i don't really understand why he went on

i don't think the term 'greedy' is acceptable really whether it's used by certain people to attack no dealing or to attack dealing.

The show is based on 'greed' and everyone who goes on to expect money for opening boxes is 'greedy' really. :?

The aim of the game is to win as much money as is possible. OK Mario was unlucky but he knew the risk he was taking and it's a shame it didn't work out.

I didn't think that was an unreasonable deal - high 20s -30K and i'd have been advising a deal.

I was sure he was going to take the £22,500, and had a feeling it would go wrong when he went on... and so it proved as he took out the big one right at the end. Who knows what the final offer would have been if he'd picked the other box.

Just hope he didn't have too many regrets, my Wakeyistic side loves to see people have a go at the really big money but my realistic side likes to see people go away with an amount that's right for them. And I suspect that fifth offer would have done a lot for him and his family. At least £1,000 was some consolation and he didn't leave with a blue.

Anyway, who was the last person to take out the £250,000 with the 20th box in active play? Has it happened since 1p Trevor?

Shirley and Daniel I think.

This could almost count as the worst 20th box to 1p trevor.

Have you ever thought that £250,000 is what is right for someone?

I suspect had he left my box alone and kept 250K vs 1k he woulda been out like a shot even if it was derisory probably! :?

Right for someone with no commitments who can afford to take the risk, yes. Whether that gamble was right for him, I'm not so sure.

Depends what you class as "derisory". £1,000 may as well be 1p in that situation as far as I'm concerned. So it's just a case of whether that final offer is money you can afford to lose or not - whether it's £20,000 or £125,000.

Of course £250,000 is better than anything lower but the question is whether it's by enough to make a risk worthwhile!

I might have gone on with the low reds there, I might not; very well-judged offer and I may have tried to wrangle the £26k out of the Banker rather than try and decide on £22,500! Neither decision was stupid and it was painful to see the 10% chance in that order!

well if I had 1k vs 250K and I was offered something like 40 to 50K truthfully i'd be dead angry thats derisory to me. If he gave me 125K on a 1k 250K finish id snab it and run but we know he would never be that generous. lol

I have a come to play the game attitude so I would be looking for 6 figure money but if the boxes did not fall I would try get the best out of it I can.

Which on Friday was six grand through not 'playing the game' the way you define it...

(Although, of course, the biggest wins come from the biggest risks most of the time. So, too, the biggest losses. That's why they're risks.)

The first offer he received is proportional to the content of his box and his winnings.

Quite pleased I missed this actually - it sounds like as almost-as-bad version of 1p Trevor's game, noly with a small sort of consolation.

I would have left 22 as well if it had been me, not sure about the £22,500 no-deal, I'd genuinely struggle to decide on that one - average luck would at least get you something around 10k at 2-box if the biggie went but he hit the 10% chance.

But he does share the honour of having the same finish as three of my all-time favourite players - Melanie, Julian and VENTRESS, and Jackee too who was cool. Eveyone who's had that finish in active play at least got the £1,000 which is good news - only Melanie had the £100 in her very long proveout! ;-)

I just had this feeling that Mario's game was going to have a big win and when they played that extra heartbeat effect during the last 3 boxes I really thought that he was at least going to get to the end with the £250,000 still in play, I bet Mario must be thinking "if only". If he had only opened the other box then everything would be so different. I know i'd be gutted at that stage knowing if I had just picked the other box.

However Mario played the game and I thought he was brave to turn down the £22,500 offer as I thought that was rather generous and I thought he'd take it. Well done on your £1,000 anyway Mario at least you got a little money out of the game.

Another disappointment, although Mario seemed to take it extremely well so well done him. He was from Ipswich as well!

But to be honest, i thought he got a little bit greedy..i dont normally see players as greedy but for some reason...[although please dont now have a go at me for just stating that..]
