Oh dear, that deal was straight out of summer 2008, if anything it was worse, even Noel-lookalike Graham took a higher offer that that on a slightly worse board!!

Ok I admit £25k is lots of money but with the top four and two mid-red back-ups, even a really bad round would still have produced a 5-figure offer at 5-box?

I admit I'd have probably been out at 5-box though as it was possible albeit unlikely to crash from life-changing money to a blue, and I'd have defended it if that had happened but.....

I'm afraid not. We've had a few £170k proveout offers on £100k/£250k finishes.

Have to agree that statistically the deal at £25k was wrong. £42.5k would have been a tougher decision (and one I'd have probably dealt at).

Ouch!

I can perfectly understand why Stephen dealt but it was a poor decision for the board. Yes, there was a strong risk of a bad round, but ultimately it didn't materialise and that block was probably worth more than £25k. I think it was definately worth one more round at least

To confirm, MisterAl, I did indeed solely read the commentary, which made it look worse than it was this time if your account is correct, as I can safely presume it is. Sunday's introduction may be important - Noel acted sensibly in £40k David's proveout then went postal introducing the next game!

Good point from James regarding Graham, too.

This game and the last 2 show to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that the banker knows exactly what is in all the boxes.

If the banker knew there was £250k on the table, why would he have offered so little at 8-box. Nearly 1400 games, don't you think if there was any sniff of the game not being above board, someone would have mentioned it?

I don't know, maybe there's more to this randomising selection than we think

Because they are desperate for another big win to boost the show's appeal, so the offer was low to try and push him on.
