I see Del's recognised the 'Wakeyist spin' of holding the necklace, and that Alfonso has recognised that using it early is a viable safety-first procedure. Expect him to use it for a 7-box or 6-box offer - which is probably the smart conservative move, given the expectation to play on to 8-box, and the opprobrium heaped on those who defy this expectation.

Same here. If this next box is blue, he'll surely use it straight after the offer!

It'll do; it certainly makes 7-box the time to use the necklace given his likely utility curve.

The banker says he's normally be feeling confident now, but he's got a fear about the Love Necklace.

Banker's offer:

£20,000

£20,000 ain't too shabby though, KP!

With the necklace allowing me to open just one before another offer, I'd go on and open it!

The rainbow offer strip is so cycadelic! (Did I type that right?)

He's got the twenty grand if he wants it. I'd consider this a marginal call sans necklace, though leaning No Deal; probably the best moderate move now is No Deal -> Box 1.

Noel says if he no deals he can open Melissa's box 1 and immediately get another offer. Melissa says she'd advise anyone else to no deal, but she wants him to deal as she knows how much the money means to him. Alfonso says he does a bit of gambling...

Alfonso says DEAL

I'd probably go on here, but use box 1 if a red's picked straight away (in case there'd be a 5/1 split at the squashdown, I'd want an extra offer with that board...)

Well, he came for twenty grand. Fair enough. And that's only worth even the tiniest footnotes in the annals of DoND mistakes because of the fact that it could have been a one-to-open round...

And with Box 1 containing a big-money sum, Alfonso would now be either loss-cutting or loss-chasing. I would be playing on without Box 1, and hopefully to leave £250k as well as £100k and earning a highly generous offer which I then Dealt! (I'd want £45k in that situation without the £35k, or at least £55k with it, to Deal with a three-box offer to come.)

£12,000 would have been sickening...so I'd have gone on there!
