Everyone remembers a decade ago when Deal or No Deal came to the US, which, like Millionaire became an international hit.
Now, everyone also knows that it takes luck, guts, and skill to win big money...and the object is simple: pick a case and hope it contains the big prize.
But that's too easy--so in a series of rounds, you eliminate cases hoping your big prize case still remains in play. Every so often, a mysterious Banker calls the host via telephone and offers you a guaranteed cash prize to sell your case and stop your game and stop you from going home with as much money as possible. Enter the title question, "DEAL OR NO DEAL?"
Eliminate big amounts, offers go down; eliminate small amounts, offers go up. But when it comes to the offers, this is where the post comes in.
Some of you are like, "John, when a six-figure offer comes up, wouldn't you want to take it?" Well, that depends on the board. Sure, when you have a bunch of biggies on the right side, you know you're going to get a big offer..a six-figure one. But at the same time, you still have a safety net--so you gotta weigh the option of "Do I take that six-figure offer and leave my safety net on the table, or do I go ahead and keep going until my safety net is gone, and hope that the offer goes up each time?"
Then again, some people are like..."Oh, I have confidence I am holding a biggie or the biggie" (depending on what biggies are left on the board)." But then again, you can be too confident, and knock out the biggie and then your chances of a big offer go down.
So, I ask--when do you go all the way, when do you stop, and when you see a six-figure offer, do you take it, and if so, when do you take it (i.e. "take it while the safety net is still there" or "take it after the safety net is gone"?)
