Round 6 - Proveout round

7 - £35,000 Alex

20 - £20,000 Martin

It's all on this box says Noel. The Banker then calls and says the next offer would have either been £190 or £90,000.

21 - £50 Amarrah

Banker time with £500 and £250,000 remaining

You are joking says Robbie. The Banker is singing 'Angels'!

Banker's offer would've been:

£90,000

His nerves got a hold of him... should have been very very more brave. Also should have gone with what Noel said about being the first £250k. He blew it big, big, big time. Damn.

He had his chance but he blew it.

Robbie collapses to the floor!

Paul with box 8 contains the £500

Robbie says he has loved every minute up to the last one and he is gutted at that.

Decided to watch this one as I was at home, and I thought it'd probably be Robbie's game today. Haven't watched a game live in ages.

He gave the game a lot of energy, although I could tell from how long he pondered the second offer that he probably wasn't going to go all the way unless he was either very lucky or unlucky with the boxes.

The offer he took didn't seem that bad for the board (did it?), and he did well to stick to his guns no matter how many times the banker rang back to up the next offer guarantee - ultimately, if he had chosen to go on then taken out the big numbers, he'd have taken winning a blue a lot worse than what actually did happen.

Very few people would probably have gone to the end in this game (although we can all think of a few people here who will claim they did). It seems such a shame that, no matter how sensible any decision a contestant makes, whether to take the money or not, the game goes the wrong way and they're humiliated for it. It's not been a great year for the show has it? :(

I really hope I didn't give myself a stomach ulcer watching that. Maybe I should watch some horror films over the weekend, might make watching DOND easier in future...

PS If a bigger gambler had played today, they'd probably have no dealt the 4th offer before the banker could ring up that many times, so I doubt the 5th offer would have been quite that high.

Who's 'they'? Just because it's a new month isn't suddenly going to magic everything better. Not that we don't wish it would!

All I'm saying is that these games are not really helping, lifting up the show's spirit

Well done to robbie on his £20,000 :)
I probably's would have took that as well, despite the banker's temptations...

Ouch and double ouch.

Personally i don't think dealing the £20k was a bad decision for the board, the £250k was dangerously exposed and there was no guarantee Robbie had bought it to the table, plus the more times the Banker phoned up to try and coax him on the more i wanted him to deal just to prove the old man wrong :oops:

Oh well, it's one thing bringing the big one to the table but you've got to have a decent back up

My calculator said around £17,500, so £20,000 was not too shabby - tricky configuration to read what to do for the best, leaving 2 of the block with the £250k will lead to a much better offer, but removing 2 of the safety net and you probably won't get significantly more than £20k. Initially, I'd have taken the £20k, but with the banker guarantee of £60k for an all-blue round (which i'd reckoned to be 1 in 18), I'd have carried on expecting similar generosity with other scenarios involving the £250k (and I think £47k was a bit inflated).

Funny kind of game today, Robbie seemed a bit ill at ease, especially when contemplating the offers, and maybe he showed a bit too much to the banker about what the money meant to him. Also, as soon as he dealt, for some reason I had a strong vibe the biggie would be the table, it just had that feeling about it. Anyway, it was a perfectly understandable decision, even with the generous banker guarantees.

Well, I think that's it for me with deal, it's been coming a while now, but that's it, I'm afraid.

The nonsense with the banker phoning how many times? The tears? Really, I've had enough, its just not the programme it used to be :(

Based purely on the recap, this reads like the sort of game that made me stop watching the shows on the telly, and started following the game entirely from this site.

Banker guarantees to goad the player into gambling? Check. Guilt trip? Check. Hypothetical lie? Check. Even worse hypothetical lie before the event has even happened, to increase the rubbing-noses-in-it potential? Check.

Sunday's player is going to have to be pretty secure in his/her decisions to not be goaded into taking an uncomfortable risk, I fear...

All blue round for a 4 red / 4 blue - 8 box is 1 in 14 (56 combinations and 4 of one colour).

£90k is the highest offer for a blue/£250k finish, Noel? I know Jennifer's game was nearly 5 years ago but how can you possibly forget it?

Can't blame Robbie for taking £20k today. The £47k I could just about stomach as being reasonable (although probably closer to £40k in live play) but the £90k was a bare-faced lie.

Of course Robbie Williams being on DOND isn't that special seeing as one has been working on the show for the last few years.

KP, have you stopped watching too?

I just find the whole show has turned into something manipulative, from the banker's behaviour, right down to the additional 'mood' music which comes on as a player is about to deal, or is having a tough decision to make.

I missed two games this week, and was more annoyed that I'd messed up the timer, than having missed the show. I really thought, well, I dont really like the show now, so I'm not bothered.

Perhaps I'll keep following on this site-i'll bookmark it now :D

Stopped over three years ago, and have watched isolated episodes now and then ever since, but no more. The game is still fantastic; the show around it is far too often caught in a trap of trying too hard. Wonderful moments are created, but some truly horrible ones are as well.
