    Andy, what’s the difference between a lock game and a crush game?

    • Andy Saunders | January 7, 2017 at 2:50 pm | Reply

      A “lock” game is what Alex refers to often as a runaway, when the leader has more than twice second place’s score.
      A “crush” game is when second place is between 50% and two-thirds of the leader’s score (Here, in order for the leader to lose, second place must get Final correct and first place must get Final incorrect, assuming rational wagering.)

  2. Interesting nomenclature. Is there a special term for a game where second place has more than 2/3 of the leader’s score going into FJ?

    The leader may have to cover a doubling of second place. If second place bets big and both miss FJ, leader wins. However, if second place bets small and both miss FJ, second place wins. Second place can force leader to get JF correct in that instance.

    Any special name for the circumstance?

      The community for as long as I remember has used the terms “lock”, “lock-tie”, “crush”, “two-thirds”, “three-quarters”, and even “four-fifths” for a really close game. Nothing else has really taken hold.

      A few specific wagering scenarios have been given names (they’re all in the J! Archive help/glossary) like Shore’s Conjecture, the Faith Love scenario and Stratton’s Dilemma.

      • Thanks — I guess my scenario is already covered under the “two-thirds” strategy. Didn’t know it had a name. Appreciate the response (and am very much enjoying the site.)
