Should have accepted the Bankers Gamble... then it would have got him an EXTRA £15,000.

Shame his daughter didn't have the courage to tell him to go for it.

I don't think his daughter would've changed his mind, he seemed to have stuck by his choices.

Still though, not a good game...and Box 7 has done me no justice! :(

Box 7 with Hoda contains the £100.

I think the Banker read you perfectly, says Noel. Neil says his wife will probably forgive him for missing out on so much money, and the money will make a difference. :D

I would have took that BG, but he knew that he didn't want to gamble so fair enough.

Depends if you felt you could chance losing £4900. If you can afford to lose it, then yes it isnt a big gamble, however, if £4900 is a lot of money to risk losing, then yes it is a big gamble.

Anyone else really believe that the banker would have offered £11,500 at 5-box when the average was £14k. Surely, it would have been £9k again in live play.

If he wasn't a gambler, then the deal at 8-box was the right decision as 80% of the time, he would have taken at least 1 red out before 5-box and the offer wouldn't have been a lot more. Sadly, he missed all 3 reds and had one in his box.

No. when i was there, and things seem "real" instead of just TV entertainment, then I wanted him to keep his £5k, as only gaining another £15k wasnt enough to risk losing almost everything.

Well at least Mark can be happy with that outcome - he gets to do his usual judgemental spiel :-D

Very cautious deal i thought but given how badly the first half of that game went i can sort of understand why Neil felt the need to grab the first 'decent' offer to come his way. And I admire him for sticking to his guns even if it was clearly the wrong decision in retrospect.

At least Tony's game will probably be more exciting though it will probably have had a MASSIVE amount of editing to fit in an hour.

3/1 about an even money shot is so +ev that you have to go for it...

Deal was so predictable though. Another dull game from a brown trouser player.


Would a £25k BG on a £100k/£10 be worth it because of the odds? At some point, you have to factor what the money means to someone.

axxeman, nice to see you have no idea what money can mean to some people. As long as they gamble for your enjoyment.

Wasn't expecting Neil to play today, let's see how this will go down.


It was his 24th show, and no-one does more than 27 these days, so he was VERY MUCH in the pipeline... :eyes: :eyes: ;) ;) ;)

I don't mean to sound like a complete tit here - but Deal-Eye would have gone on, albeit by just over £300. :eyes: ;)
