I wondered a similar thing, but I don't think the banker has to stick to his word, so he would've been within his rights to offer anything he wanted in that case!

I assume it was to make sure people stay tuned to the end; they probably recognised today's game would've felt a bit flat after the excitement of the last few games.

Too right. Weasel words would have got him out of that, or else Noel for all his claims of neutrality would have dropped a big hint by some means to the production staff. As I've said before. Rules? What rules?

Looks like it's a good thing I was called away during that second break...

Have to disagree with you there BankerSpanker.

When Al was offered the same amount at the same stage on a similarly dangerous board, it was only 33% of the average... and quite a few would have taken it, too... ;) ;)

Then he'd have offered £250,000. Simple as that.

However, it was incredibly unlikely that Fi had written £250,000. My feeling is that the Banker thought she'd written an amount around £20k in the book, and revised that figure downwards after she dealt the £12k.

I don't understand what you're saying here. Fi had written £9500 in the book. The 5-box offer was therefore £9500, no matter when that figure was revealed to the viewers. They couldn't inflate the amount post box-opening because it had already been set before she'd even dealt.

That book that's on the pound table, does anyone know how many books they've used? Surely it's still not the same one for all these years. :ponder:

Not the most memorable game of the week but Fi was a lively likeable player and i for one enjoyed the 'mystery offer' twist. Certainly she had me convinced her target was higher than it was. I was thinking she'd written about £18k.

And the amazing part is that actually shifted the game from a supposed premature game to a surprise spanking :smt023 That is a result in itself after the last few games

Whether the Banker genuinely had her sussed we are never going to know for certain, but has anyone actually gone back and watched Fi's reaction to the second offer again? To see if that glint really does appear in her eye?

You need to blow the image up to see what the banker saw.

It wasn't a spanking as she had £20k in her box but an interesting game nonetheless. I was thinking her target was around £20k in which case it makes a tough decision because £20k on a £250k/£20k/low/low/low board would have been a little low but on a £250k/peanuts board it was generous.

In a way, it was a clever move by the banker. If the targer was low, it would be an easy deal for the player and if it was high, it could encourage them to take the 62.5% gamble of a big offer at 5-box.

Of course you're right, I'd convinced myself the £3k was in Fi's box for some reason, Wishful thinking i suppose

I don't blame Fi for dealing the £12k, although the argument for going on was there too - you've basically got to miss the £250k in the next 3 boxes for a better offer, but if you do find it, you may be pushed to the end.

At least with the £20k in the box we can call it a small-scale banker victory, rather than debate over whether it was really a 'banker spanking' with the 5th offer gimmick...
