Wagering practice – Help a brother out!

October 23, 2013

Reader Josh Woo asked me to highlight his game, from Back to School Kids Week in 2003. What should he have wagered?

Remember, Kids Week contestants must win outright, so wagering for a tie won’t suffice!

    Another thing to bear in mind with Kid’s games, as well as other kinds of games where the right to play again is not at stake (such as non-tournament Celebrity games) and no large prize predicated on winning is at stake (such as the finals of a tournament), is that if you have lots of confidence it may be worthwhile to bet big for a big payday (such as what Skyler Hornback did last summer in Kid’s Week when he “pulled a Clavin” and won big from it): http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=4285

    • Great point, Kelly! I think the guaranteed minimum amount becomes a factor if the scores are low enough, too.
