Why couldn't he have picked the round 6 boxes in the 5th round? Still who cares, he sold a blue for 22 grand.

Norwich, are you the banker's slave or something? You always seem delighted no matter who the contestant is if they either win a blue or deal too early. Don't you actually want anyone to do well?? :?

Wasn't Fran the last contestant to bring it to the table?

And we all know how her game turned out... ;)

I think killersbee is predicting a £13,500 win on 23rd June 2012.

Interesting game, and the technical draw is a fair result from a game which took "too soon, but better than too late" near enough to its logical conclusion.

Not as frustrating as the snooker anyway (though I missed both, as I was browsing for bicycles).

'Twas Chris from a couple of weeks later actually. ;)

I really liked Roy, and I can't blame him for dealing. Just a shame that massive crash round came one round too late.

Ah, of course. Cheers Jack. :smt023

That was only 33 games ago, though - the £250k has had much longer periods away from the table...

I'm not entirely sure what the difference is between a player who claims they have a large amount on the table from the start and Roy's claim (which had a 11/21 chance of being true) and why Noel said it was brave - had the first box been £1k, I doubt he would have put so much emphesis on it.

Can't blame the deal given that the banker said that any of the 3 big reds going would mean a less generous offer, just shame that the only red that went was the lowest one.

Kudos to Roy for a very original psychological gambit 'Whatever colour i find inside the first box i open my box contains the same'. Total BS of course but he delivered it with such a poker face. Could have made things difficult for himself if that first box had been a blue.

Ultimately the 8 box deal was arguable either way and having dealt it's a shame the proveout didn't go his way. And nobody is expressing doubt over the sincerity of the proveout offer today? Makes a change

Wasn't sure what to make of the £44k proveout offer today - if it had been lower in live play it may not have been that much lower. Would probably depend on how much determination would come across with no-dealing the £22k.

Roy's deal was perhaps cautious, but also understandable - he was just as likely to take 2 reds as 2 blues in round 5, and even if it was the £15k and £35k that went, the offer wouldn't have gone up much. Plus the 1p and 10p were still in play, and by no-dealing £22k you've basically got to find at least one of them in the next 3 boxes or the next offer is likely to be dragged down.

That £22k was a very tough decision to make. With the board being 50-50 it could go either way. I don't think £44k was too inflated.

I don't see anything wrong with playing on the side of the banker. It is just a parlour game of luck at the end of the day. At least once play the game as if its your pot of cash you are giving out with the aim of giving the least possible - I dare you.
