Well, Alice was always going to be a tough act to follow but Wayne was a good choice for today's show. Have to admire the way he dealt with the Banker's blackmail attempt. :D


An amusing diversion too with the Banker's firing and rehiring (quite plausible in the current circumstances)

Personally I would have probably gone at £35k but i wouldn't have taken £21,500, I know i've said before a 5 box offer which is higher than 80% of the board is worth considering but in this case it was only £1500 higher which is negligible relatively speaking

Hardly seems fair that he isnt getting the bankers gamble


The show isn't 'fair', Alice only got the banker's gamble because she was young, Welsh and the 1p was left.

Nonsense! Because she's young and welsh?! Probably was offered cos of the whole risk taking attitude she'd brought up throughout the show, then 'bottling' it at 17.5k. The banker's gamble was pretty obvious by 5 box time. I do agree that the presence of the 1p made it a perfect gambling board for someone who made a point of their attitude to risk. THAT'S why the gamble was offered, not because of her gender, age or nationality!

:shock: My 12 year old son took one look at Wayne and said "he's gay".....I said "don't be silly and don't say things like that about people"

:eyes: Guess he can tell better than me lol :smt046

Lol! I used to think i had a pretty good gaydar, but i missed wayne on it this time! I have been known to shock my mum with my accuracy when spotting gay players. And yes, i know what you mean-dont say that!-but since i have no problems with it, its really all in good humour:-) an aside-while waiting for a prescription in boots in Belfast in 2006, i saw a really familiar girl walking about at the makeup counters. Til i realised it was marcus!(from march 06) i had to stop myself from running over and congratulating him on his brilliant show!

Was Wayne's show filmed on the same day as Alice's?

What's the point of that hypothetical swap? Are we to assume he would have no dealt £90,000 and gambled, because if not then that swap is utterly pointless.


My feelings exactly - in which case I just ignore Noel and take the opposite view to what he says (i.e he sold a £250k box for £21.5k).

Glad to see that Wayne resisted the encouragement to gamble at 5 box (which was understandable after Alice's game). The 8 box offer was better but on a 4/4 board, it could have easily have gone his way.

This was the most important game of the season (he types while watching Manchester United v Liverpool :D) and we get a £35k eight-box No Deal (albeit on a board where it was worth considering) followed by a 'ha ha, you coward' two-box hypothetical joke. Fortunately it would've been an OBW anyway AND they still carried out the hypo swap - if they'd not hypo-swapped so that they could go 'ha ha, you squandered £250k' I'd have really, really feared for the show.

However, Wayne rose above the very dangerous post-£250k euphoria, and had he bought any other box to the table then failure to resist the pressure to duplicate Alice would have led to a Craig-esque self-inflicted trainwreck!

I think the 2 box offer, whilst inflated, was somewhat justifiable in the context of the banker not wanting to risk a send QM-aire in consecutive days.

Well it was always going to be an interesting game after Alice's and no wonder the original Banker got the sack after offering that type of gamble he did to Alice...but i'm glad Geoff didn't last and the normal Banker got his job back.

Just imagine if the Banker had offered the Banker's Gamble again today as well. Potentially two £250,000 winners in the same amount of days.

At 5-box it was all about whether it was worth the risk of chasing the £250,000 or taking the offer, with Wayne taking the offer, which is understandable. It's a shame that £250,000 remained though (well technically it couldn't be found) till the end, but for a split second I thought the Banker might offer the gamble - though of course I knew it wouldn't really happen two days in a row.

Been a very interesting week. We've had Alice become the second QM winner and we had George who just missed out on the 1p club. Just what will tomorrow bring? Hopefully a big win so that we can get the biggest payout in a week.

Oh it may well have been that offer in active play for that storyline. In fact that was the one justification, in my view, for the encouragement to No Deal!

A good game to have after the colossal game of Thursday.

Wayne was great, I loved how he didn't let the Banker intimidate him and it was good to see him go away with a decent sum of money. And yeah, the biggie was in there again, but to be fair, I didn't care.

I guess I would be right in saying that he would have dealt the £90,000?

Some really good comments there, but good or bad, I'm glad I did my bit and walked away with a nice sum. To be fair though, better than that I have made some fantastic friends and have built up a decent level of self-confidence that I had lacked when I was younger.

It's great to hear the whole DOND experience has done you good, and I echo what you say about making friends and building confidence.

It was always going to be difficult playing the show after such a big win like Alice's. I was *beep* myself at the start of Friday's show, thinking it'd be me. We were both on 21 shows so were "on the radar" (to quote Dirk) but luckily they pulled you out of the bag instead of me. :P

I have to say, I did like your expression when your name was called. :o And Noel's impression of you!! :o :o

Thought you were very brave to No Deal the £35k offer, and then thought you should have gone on when you dealt but c'est la vie. It couldn't have been easy following Alice.

What would you have done had the BG been offered at the end?
