You're pretty sure it wasn't? I hope not. Of course, the causality's hard to discern - the immediate propaganda may not have had an effect because the long-term nature of it has now become so well-known to, and potentially entrenched in, contestants he doesn't really need to do it anymore for the desired effect...

Not that it mattered, as he took the £17,000 OPW. What an amazing run of games.

I think the 11 box deal would have been a very cautious one with a 50/50 chance of keeping the top 2 in play.

Rich came across as a great guy, and a very pleasing OPW.

I do think there is a danger in talking about a target unless its a large one as the banker plays on that.
Rich somewhat kept his cards close to his chest but it became obvious that he wasn't a big gambler,
and didn't really fool the banker that much, although at least he didn't give away the 15K target.
The banker could have made things very uncomfortable by offering him as little as £10,000 at 5 box and given him
a tough decision, but it worked out really well in the end.
