I did another live broadcast this evening! They’ve been a lot of fun to do so far – I enjoy working without a net. (If I say something dumb, there’s no way to start over!)

I hope you’ll join me for my next one – keep an eye on my Facebook page and my Twitter feed for announcements as to timing.

Perhaps the best part is it’s interactive, so I can answer any burning questions you might have about that evening’s episode.

We have a similar situation to what we saw on Friday. Will Siddharth pull it off again from distant third?

Siddharth

Hariharan (2x)

Dorcas

Alexander

Seth

Wilson

7,000 16,800 14,900

 

Combined wagers

It’s not quite a Shore’s Conjecture situation, as Seth can’t cover a zero wager out of Dorcas without risking a double-up from Siddharth.

FIRST-ORDER SECOND-ORDER COVER ZERO
min max min max min max
600 3,200 13,000 3,800 7,900
1,000 900

What actually happened

Siddharth Dorcas Seth
7,000 16,800 14,900
2,000 13,001 14,900
9,000 3,799 29,800
min max min max min max
601 3,199 13,001 3,801 7,899
999 899

And we almost have a redux of Friday’s match, but this time the second-place player gets it right, along with a handsome amount of cash.

Sometimes doing the wrong thing pays off… sometimes.
