If he doesn't take this, I hope he gets $50.

Your wish would have come true.


Still, this guy was a complete idiot. He should have quit at the $50K.

Play the online game at nbc.com a few times, and you'll see how crazy this approach is. Your EV at the very start is over $130,000 (I worked it out, but forget the exact number). With the low offers they give you, there's no way you should accept anything until there are, say, 8 suitcases left. It's extremely unlikely that you'll wind up with less than $10K if you stop gambling around that time, and even then you'll usually be in a position to keep going for a little bit while getting odds you can't pass up and a variance you can stomach.

Yeah, I see your point. I exaggerated on my part for the 10k... but near the end when some of these people are trying to decide for the deals >100k, It comes into play. I was just trying to make the point that you can't fault someone for making the "incorrect" choice, if the money would mean that much to them.

anyways...I think they're going to spice this game up or it won't be around long. any ideas?

I think the game has two more shows and that's it. After that, I think it's about whether or not it gets picked up. I doubt that it does, but I wouldn't be surprised if they run it 2 - 4 weeks out of every year.

It's NBC. I don't see why this can't happen, since it already did.

But it's fun to mock people who make -EV bets.
