*Rideau Canal* is a French name, is what I would assume he meant.

Pretty crazy to think that less than 3 months into the season an 11 game winner is the third winningest contestant so far.

FWIW, Amy's avg Coryat is >25k so far. Only James, Ken and Matt A. have a higher one.

Good as in "very strong across most categories" or good in the context of our thread title?

Her daily double wagering is less than ideal, especially in SJ where somebody who has a 85% chance of being correct should always go all-in. Yesterday's FJ wager was really bad because she would have lost the game unnecessarily on an incorrect response.

She's also probably one win away from #5 in all time regular game winnings.

As far as competition goes, it's difficult to say how hers compare to other 10+ game winners. Generally speaking, the average contestant has been getting significantly stronger over time though. The average Coryat of James competition was 28% higher than what Ken faced for example. That's a huge difference.

Itís gonna be interesting to see if the champ passes Julia Collins in wins and total money won do they acknowledge her as the all-time female leader in these categories. I personally donít think they should. But I think they will.

She already passed Julia Collins in money won and is only 50k behind Jason for #4 all-time. And they're obviously recognizing her as a female. They've done that since day 1 which is 100% the right thing to do.

Not doing that now would not only mean they changed their mind based on how much money she won but would also send out a message of "women are born stupid".

More interesting to me is she almost lost day one and could have been one of those random great players who lost straight off we never knew.

Matt Amodio would have lost his first game if the reigning champion didn't miss the final clue in DJ when time ran out.

Amy versus James versus Watson

My money is on Amy

Hard to compare who of Amy and James would be better on the buzzer.

Throw in Matt instead of the search engine on steroids, and I think Matt has the widest range of knowledge.

James obviously is the GOAT on wagering.

King~of~Diamonds post was a pretty obvious troll.

That said, it's not really hard to compare Amy and James on the buzzer. Amy has a first on buzzer percentage of 48% while James was at 58%.

"Widest range of knowledge" is hard to quantify but I don't think there's a real argument on who the stronger player is between Matt and James. One was correct 92% of the time he rung in, 88% on daily doubles and 74% in final jeopardy while the other one was at 97% when ringing in, 95% on DD and 97% in FJ.

(FWIW, Amy is at 95%; 87% and 92% respectively on a much smaller sample size)

Interesting first episode of the professor tournament. Not sure if that lady played some super elaborate strategy or just decided to ring in with random guesses to see what happens.

Was impressed with her coming up with 2Pac though, didn't expect that.

So what did Babe Ruth do in the 12 years between hitting his final 3 home runs in 1935 and breaking the MLB color barrier in 1947?

I'm sure I've never seen a DD bet of $700 before.

It's close enough to the optimal wager of $5.

Hester’s $2000 wager in DJ was brutal.

She should have to put an A on her shirt. For *******
