I will take the under on that.



I hate for this to look like I'm trying to steal Barb's bet, but in my defense I did throw out the date and the idea first. Plus, it is a free market. The show will air on the east coast soon, so here is my offer, James will survive 11 shows from the time the bet is made. It should not include today. So, if we close on a bet before early Monday, I'm saying he will be on and win the 4/29 show, assuming he wins today.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

If you accept that the program airing April 26, if he loses that night, it's a draw. Any night losing before that, you win. If he wins April 26 (is still on at all in the first place, but must win), I win.

Then It's a bet.

Accepted for the same $20 as BBB if you still want action.

Your bet got accepted before I put mine up, which is why I put mine up without reference to yours. Let me scroll back and double check...

Yeah. Ed Collins took the no on yours.

Not that you can't accept both Ed and Max. But I wouldn't cut you out on purpose. Sorry to have crowded your action if I did.

I offered to take the Under and suggested an amount of $20.00. I haven't heard that amount has been accepted yet.

At this point I assume I have a bet with Max only and $20 is all I want.

The delay between taping and air time is around three months. Ken Jennings already won 48 games by the time his first game aired. Article.

Holy crap. Superman. What is the record?
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

Ken won $2,520,700 with 74 wins. Second through fifth are all grouped together between $411,000 and $430,400. James is currently 6th on the money list with $325,877, but 2 more "average" wins (for him, at least) would vault him into 2nd.

If you scroll down a little on this page, you can see the all-time money list (not including tournament winnings).
