 N ever underestimate a man with nothing to lose. Especially if he's far enough behind, and knows it, so we doesn't put anything on the table... he just lets it ride!

After the first round of Trivia Classic, it was the Cunning Stunts once again in the lead position! They held a seven and half point lead on PETE! who bounced back after a rough week in the first round last week, though it still ended up with a Golden VHS in the one-man mainstay anyway! PETE! held a three point lead over the latest incarnation of Lt. Dance, R.I.P.G.O.P., while newcomers #GoodTimes rounded out the field in fourth!

This led to the Cunning Stunts grabbing the TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown thanks to some clever game theory, while #GoodTimes were still able to pick-up eight points, and R.I.P.G.O.P. still picked up six points! Then in Survey Says, it was R.I.P.G.O.P. with the TOP TEN, while PETE! picked up eight points, the Cunning Stunts grabbed two points, and #GoodTimes still managed to nab another two points! Finished this led the field to C-C-Combo Breakdown with the three teams looking to catch-up to the Cunning Stunts before they ran off with the lead! However, the slimmest of margins saw R.I.P.G.O.P. fall with three points, after #GoodTimes had exited with two points, as did PETE! This left the Cunning Stunts as the lone team standing with FOURTEEN POINTS to their name!

Tri-Pardo would prove to test if R.I.P.G.O.P. or PETE! could catch up with Trivia Club's winningest team, or if it would be #GoodTimes who would surprise the field with an introductory victory! In the third round, PETE! was able to get the 10 point question correct, but failed to get the 20 point question correct and lost 10 points as a result! The Cunning Stunts played it safer and got 25 points from the third, as a result! R.I.P.G.O.P. also got two out of three correct and got 30 points as a result, while #GoodTimes finished off the diverse field of answers by getting the 15 and 20 point questions correct and gained 35 points for their troubles, gaining a measure of points on the competition!

For the Finale, it was business as ususal for R.I.P.G.O.P. as the team also known as Lt. Dance went ALL IN ,while the Cunning Stunts with 91 points to their name at that point decided to ride their momentum and also went all in on the Finale! #GoodTimes left a point on the table in the OFF CHANCE that they might need it... and PETE!, who realized that he was behind after taking a hit in Tri-Pardo but didn't know that he in fact had slightly less then a third of the Cunning Stunts point total, did not bet a thing! Aaaaand it paid off, yes the one-man wrecking crew that is PETE! surprised even himself with a twenty-nine and a half point victory!


Congrats to PETE! on your FIFTEENTH GOLDEN VHS! Yes, that ties the winningest singles competitor as the sixth winningest team of all-time at Trivia Club, thanks to an unprecedented repeat victory he passes the M. Night Shaym-Aliens in the all-time win standings! Thank you to all the teams that came out, our newcomers to Lou Dawg's BBQ, and of course two of the three all-timers at Lou Dawg's, Lt. Dance and the Cunning Stunts! See you all NEXT TUESDAY!
