Thanks, after a red dominance it seems the power is with the blue at the moment, Adrian did well to accept that he either had to chase the 250k or deal with an amount meaningful to him.

Aw that was an awesome game!! I'm so glad we've finally had a third offer Deal that was the right decision (even if we had to suffer a bit of Noel being a *beep* to get there), and Adrian was great...the bit where he nudged the offer up then suddenly Dealt was so cool!! What a legend.

The only person I feel sorry for is Rose...it should really have been here game today, and she had the £250k...I hope she doesn't play on Sunday and win 1p. :?

And there was another Woollin similarity in him dodging the QM until after the deal, so YAY! :)

Congratulations to Adrian on winning more than seven times what the average reckless idiot would have won.

If this triggers a reality check in Noel, this game could extend the show's lifespan by years.

Well it may not be your own view but I think the majority of the audience prefer to see the gamblers...

Still, games like this certainly make a refreshing change, and isn't it nice to see a third offer OPW without anyone filling the thread with abusive comments? Not mentioning any names of course ;) but I think this is the first time we've had one since Kestral took the red card out of his pocket around Christmas time...

*laughs loudly at Power5*

The audience did dwindle fairly significantly over the course of the post-Laura nonsensical games though, and haven't stopped doing so. For a show that is generally seen as a cult hit - and as such should have stable ratings - that's a huge deal, pun intended.

Having not seen the games in question, can you explain what was so bad about them? There don't appear to have been a higher proportion going all the way or even to the 2-box stage than was normal before that. Without studying the stats in detail there doesn't seem that much evidence of crazy gambling.

I think the fall in audience after Laura is more likely down to the fact that the top prize had been won, rather like the Millionaire effect.

Harry's game didn't have them becuase you know who was on holiday! :)

In actual fact, out of all the 3rd offer deal OPWs, I thought Adrian had the best chance of pulling it off when he said DEAL, because he only had 2 values higher than the deal, whereas Mike had 3, Harry, Melanie and Paul D had 4, and James had a staggering 5!! I found it the least surprising of the 6 - all the others I thought should have gone on, only to be proved completely wrong! (though unlike somone else, I was wishing them big reds in the proveout)! ;-)

Offers in excess of 80% of the mean were very frequently rejected, and while some would indeed get out eventually, they took some huge and often ill-considered risks to get there.

Actually the gambling is probably not the cause of the loss of viewers. Instead, it might be the cause of the gambling - Noel's cavalier attitude to money and the constant mentions of Laura.

Actually, scratch that comment, Harry's deal didn't surprise me at all, I knew he'd be cautious all along, and I could also tell Mike was going to deal when he was getting emotional....but the other three did stun me! :)

But it was the first one since Mike in December - ironically a year to the day since the other Mike played :D

I think that was the best game for quite some time - loved his dry humour and also his single-mindedness (if that's a word... :? ) that as soon as he reached his target he was off (even better with 2 grand cadged from the Banker for good measure!)

Even so, I reckon a TV screen somewhere in Grimsby has had a brick violently thrown through it this evening... ;)

Well played Adrian!

If the money on offer is not significant or life-changing to you though, surely you are perfectly entitled to reject anything below 100% of the mean?

Take the sum of £10,000 for example, it's a nice amount but in terms of my own situation it would be far from life-changing. I've often thought that if I played DOND for real, the only way I would win £10,000 would be if it was in my box. Or perhaps on a 1p/£20,000 final pair or something like that, if the Banker was that generous. I'd be there for a shot at the big money, and if the highest amounts went early on then it would just be a case of it's not my day and I'd take what was in my box, or perhaps a final offer of close to the mean in a red/blue finish.
