QuoteOriginally posted by: RowdyRoddyPiperOkay, so they do 5 games a week, I don't know how many weeks in a season, but I suppose we can find out. That way we can adjust out seasonality for the limited (9month sample we have) and games playedWho's the we? Just name your price. And above all else, keep it simple. Bell loses when someone beats 28. If the planet gets nuked, Bell wins. If Jeopardy changes the format, and nobody stays on for more than 3 days, Bell wins. If they change the format so that a "house" player takes on a single challenger with brain damage each week, and that house player beats 28 lone retards in a row, Roddy wins. If Jeopardy is cancelled, Bell wins. If Jeopardy franchises the brand name, and multiple games take place on the same night, the total rate of play is assumed if the bet is timed by games awarded, and a 29 in any game will count for a Roddy win if the bet is by calendar time, even if they increase or decrease the schedule...QuoteOriginally posted by: RowdyRoddyPiperI'll have to work think on it. I guess once Ken hits the end of the line we'll figure out how to price the other side of this trade.Bad move. You want to catch someone while he's dumb. The contest is to see who can price better on an impulse. The longer you research and deliberate, the closer your opinions will converge, until the price won't be worth the volatility to the winner. Maybe that is what you want? QuoteOriginally posted by: RowdyRoddyPiperI will get on the phone with LaSalle to see if they are interested in acting as custodial agent on thisI take it you don't actually want to bet? Wouldn't they report the gains to the IRS, and wouldn't the gains and losses still only be counted against other gambling gains and losses?
