Round 6 - proveout

10 - Charlotte - £50,000

7 - Tom - 50p

The banker phones and says he'd have phoned at this point, to promise an offer of £90,000 if this box is not the £250,000.

21 - Aisha - £5

Banker time with £50 and £250,000 remaining...

The banker says even though the blue is only a modest one, he'd have been terrified of Chris at this stage.

Banker's offer would've been:

£90,000

Box 13 with Bev contains the £50

Noel says this is a tricky moment for a player like Chris. Chris says if he'd gone on, he would've swapped for box 13 and won £50.

...YET ONCE AGAIN... the old faithful has worked! Should have gone with what Noel said about being the first £250k winner. Should have been a LOT more brave.

OH DEAR... OH DEAR... OH DEAR

Should have been a LOT more brave.

He had his chance... but blew it BIG BIG BIG time.

Massive shame the Bankers Gamble wasn't offered.

Shame that Crystal and Stephen wasn't in the audience as they would have probably told him to go for it.

It was nowhere near as bad a deal as Fran's £10,021, though... ;)

You do know that for some reason the Banker hardly offers it these days, do you?

They might have... or they might have not... we'll never know. ;)

Brilliant! That is, that Chris said he would have swapped anyway, so stopped NE in his tracks with all the usual stuff we were going to get about missing out on our first male quarter of a millionaire. They have done this a few times lately, and not offered the swap, after a deal, when the 250k is left - so much for playing on with honesty

Why is it that us men find it very difficult to win the jackpot? We seem to have more of a problem with courage than the women do

£90,000 my a***! :smt019
Since when has the Banker ever offered that much with a £50 & £250k board?! Sobia had £15k & £250k and she was only offered £70,000. *sigh*

Well, to have got £26k out of a game that only had 3 reds at 11-box is an achievement in itself (and yes, that's despite now knowing he couldn't have taken out the biggest one), and considering that many players would have taken the £13k at 8-box (I was surprised to see it was that high, wouldn't have expected five figures there), this probably could have been a lot worse.

Chris did take at least one significant risk (at 8-box) and the offer he took was far from a bad one, so I don't think he could be accused too overly influenced by the bad games we've had so far this week.

Of course, this isn't going to stop certain people from going "Coward! I'd always go to the end no matter what!" who've been hiding for the last two games when it's been proven that taking that attitude is far from guaranteeing a victory either.

I missed the end cause of a work call. So he dealt old faithful and had the biggie in hix box but would have swapped. Not sure what to make of that one then.

3rd unlucky game in a row :(

They ought to outlaw that 26k, but he wouldn't want that as it's so effective for him :p

That Hilde went on a bit didn't she, she will be an intriguing contestant to say the least :-D

Unlucky Chris on not getting the big one there, but well done on £26,000

Had to laugh at Noel's barnet when it was waxed, reminded me so much of Vyvyan from the Young Ones

He's probably got double what I would have got in that game.

The women aren't quite spot on with their courage either though, as Jenna, Sobia and Fran's games have proved recently. Chances are a good few male and female players would have won £250k in any of those games. Plus a lot of the power 5 box winners we've had recently have been male - Christopher, Ant, Dale - was courage a problem for them?

Both players get some deserved good fortune there. Chris takes a chance followed by a sound Deal, and takes big money back from Bristol. The Banker didn't take chances just because he advised a surprise Deal last game, and is rewarded with a big saving on what he would have paid otherwise.

I must say that if anything I would have either gone on at 5-box or taken £13k, and almost certainly the latter realistically... I didn't think "only" a double for the all-blue was enough!
