Great show David, one of the most entertaining for a while.

£6500 is a great result considering it was never going to be a mega-money game.

I'm sure you will have added hundreds of other DOND fans to the forum as well. Well done!

Hugely entertaining game, yet intensely nerve-wracking to watch throughout - the board was really in the balance in the latter half. There was some great banter with Noel, and Dirk's 'war dance' (or whatever it was) was hysterical, Noel's face was a picture! Lots of great moments, it was a good comedy game.

Nice to hear a few links to the site through the offers, and I think David's fan status helped him to secure a decent offer at 5-box (albeit lower than David said!), as the banker knew he couldn't give him anything too derisory. It was a sensible deal, and one I'd have definitely taken as well.

Enjoy the £6,500, David! :D

Congratulations on an exceptionally entertaining game - the best I've seen. Your family will be very proud of you - particularly Henry when you show him a recording of the game...

Yay! Welldone David! Very memorable and entertaining game from start to finish. I loved how the Banker offered you yourself and the references to your posts and the dance and the bananas and the "Are you drunk?" quote and everything else! It's was very surreal!

Your game will be remembered for a long time to come and your contributions have definately enhanced the show. Your dedication to the show and this site is amazing! Keep up the good work! :D

dond.co.uk FTW!

Well done David - entertaining show and good to see you get some decent money out of it and beat the Banker as well! I knew you were a fairly cautious player from posts on here and the Dealometer etc. a while back, so never expected you to gamble at the really big money but as the game fell apart in the middle like a few have recently I could see it heading for one of those unavoidable blue wins that so many great contestants seem to get - thankfully that didn't happen and the deal proved the right one!

And great to see the forum get a bit of TV exposure, hopefully will boost numbers even if the site wasn't actually mentioned by name! Kestral's turn next perhaps? ;)

Well done David!

Fantastically entertaining show with a decent win!

One things - there were three bananas on the pound table at the end. I assume some editing has gone on, but what was written on the third?

I thoroughly enjoyed the banter I had with Noel, the banker and the other contestants. I never really intended to do any of that as I thought I'd be too nervous once I got to the chair. However, nerves deserted me (luckily!) and I thought I'd give it a go and put into action some of the things I'd always thought about doing - one of the main things of course was looking through the stuff Noel keeps in the cupboards in the table! That really was furniture polish and it really did smell, by the way...

I think the highlight for me has to be Dirk's war dance. He's such a funny bloke and it was absolutely hilarious that he did that dance in my game. The look on Noel's face afterwards was fabulous too! I've already posted the lyrics to it in his fan club in the Contestants section on here, but I'll re-produce them in this thread too (later on though, as I feel this post is too long already). I had indeed been ill from food poisoning and this was my first show back after that. I don't think anyone was expecting me to play as we thought they'd let me settle in for a show (or two) before actually playing my game!

The banker quoting my posts was an amusing twist, particularly when he told Noel about the "tough filming schedule" post! I felt the offers I got were good overall. I had a look back in the stats, and Penny from 2008 was offered £3,500 on an almost identical board to mine, and another David (also from 2008) was offered just £3,000 on virtually the same board. So I think my 5-box offer of £6,500 was pretty fair, especially as I'd knocked out the highest remaining value (£50k) in the previous round, and the blues were heavily stacked against the reds.

As I said at the time, I didn't think the 2-box offer would be much higher unless I left £20k vs £35k, and I didn't think it was worth chasing that scenario when there was a 60% chance I had a blue in my box. There was a chance of a near-stick if I knocked out one red and 2 blues (which is what happened after I dealt), but I didn't think it was worth risking because of the high chance of an all-blue finish. As I said to Noel, I really did not want to win a blue! The blues can scare you just as much as the large amounts of money can tempt you...

I think I'll post some more later for fear of making people fall asleep if this post gets too long. :eyes: It's already long enough. :oops:

Well that was definitely in the top few shows of Season 4, fantastic entertainment - as we know most of the really massive wins never feature loads of wing banter, dances, funny monments with Noel rejecting 2 bananas....but a £6,500 sale of a 50p box is just as great, indeed the banker never bought the box because David kept it! :D

I didn;t think David was going to me a reckless gambler but also wouldn;t walk for a derisory sum, so at least he was actually reading the board when he decided to deal - he's certainly in a small minority there!!

And if that wasn't enough, Clive was doing the 1000th show countdown - same wing position and another classic comedy contestant!!

Full applause to you for admitting the possible outcomes as I see the same thing (blue Vs £20K as £4K and blue vs £35K as £5K). With the final two being 50p Vs £20K it was an ideal situation to use the second chance/Banker's Gamble. Being curious, if I was on the phone and decided to use it against your deal (£6,500), would you accept it and open the box?

On another note, I see MisterAl was edited out, can you give details to what actually happened down there?

Sounds like a good game, mised it cos I was at work! Tried logging in while I was there but the servers were down...

Hopefully I'll get to watch it later, might skip the intro though, I'd have thrown my box at Noel for calling me a coward...

WELL DONE DAVID!!!! :smt023

If anyone cares, I found the threads that H2005's famous posts that the Banker was refering to were taken from:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=15149&p=464232&hilit=60#p464232

Haha, thanks for the links, Banker. Goodness me, they really have had a good look through the forum haven't they. That second post you linked to was posted 2 years ago. :shock:

Brilliant show H, I saw and then thought I should catch up. The show was random in places which made it more enjoyable! I liked the dond.co.uk links and it was all brilliant. The banker offering you yourself was also really funny. I see you collect clocks - I also collect certain items, however it's a bit too embarrassing to post on the forum! Hope you are/ have enjoying/enjoyed the money. Which forum member is next up? 8)

Noel is nearly 60 lmao!! That post you made linked to the show!

And Margaret reminds me of the other Margaret, and that Derik reminds me of Ken...

I love how H says WakeyNoel was less obvious in recent weeks... in early March 2007, almost immediately before his worst week ever. Great spot there Tom ;)

David, I may be wrong but it looked as though when you sat down at the end of the game you looked up at somebody in the audience? Was there anybody up there you knew...?
