NJ humidity might make a difference. Although I don't think by much
These are not airtight units. It already has a crack/hole letting water in.

Not right away, they can put you some sort of list and shut you down if they just think they smell something wrong.
I think you are giving them to much credit.

Part of the question is whether or not Chase will retaliate if people opt out, how will a lawyer answer that?
You mean like closing your account? Bring it on!  :)

Uh, opting out doesn't prevent you from going to arbitration.
Uh, I didn't address that.

Yes. He takes it as a given that Emma bets the maximum and moves on. He doesn't explain why he assumed that.
Nothing is a given to him (professional gambler).
This might help you: “Betting big would have looked good for the cameras, but [by doing so] now I turn my straight bet — Emma misses — into a parlay: Emma misses and I get it right,” said Holzhauer.

What say you, to opt out or not ?
Will check with a real lawyer and report back.  :)

James talks about his bet. It's a little simplified as he describes his bet as a straight bet that Emma would get it wrong, which isn't exactly true.
Did you read the article?
“So my only concern was getting overtaken by third place, and I bet just enough to make sure of locking him out,” Holzhauer told The Action Network.

I plan on opting out.
There is a reason they are choosing arbitration over courts! They know, in arbitration they have a lot less to lose and you'll have no leverage just in case anything happens.
Please don't make posts like this when you have no idea what you are talking. Arbitration is currently the strongest weapon against shutdowns for non-compliance.

They usually do not even give a reason why they shut you down.
This shutdown was a no-brainer.

but then maybe she thought that he expected her to think that he would do that so he went all in.
There it is in a nutshell. You just don't know. He guessed right.

He likely based it in what most (good) players would do in her situation.
That brings us to the next question. If she is a good player wouldn't she guess James would do that and just bet $1 and be guaranteed the win, right or wrong on final question?
A pretty good bet he was just playing the odds. Very seldom will they get players on that show that understand odds. They are geeks!!!  :)

I don't understand the what ifs. He made a bet based on what he thought she would bet, she bet that amount, but she got it right, so it's moot.
You are 100% correct it was based on what he thought she would do. Because he guessed right that does not equate to the correct bet.

He was right. She did exactly what he thought she would. Could be he studied past bets to know what the leader would most likely do in that situation.
Yes he was right. She should have bet $1 and she could not lose even if she answered wrong. Would he still be right then?

I just wanted you to be aware of something crazy. I have 5 Chase accounts (Presidential Plus, Marriott, Saphire, IHG and BA). Today I went to the gas station to fill up my car and my card was declined. I tried another card and it was declined again. I went home and called Chase to find out why. It turns out they closed all my accounts yesterday. I asked them why? I am a lawyer/cpa with a credit rating of approximately 835. It made no sense. The representative said because on review Chase felt that the current monthly charges were much higher than usual and when they close one account, they close all. On my Saphire account ending 3743, I have a $25,000 credit limit. I wanted to buy gold coins, 3 transaction each for $13,000, a total of $39,000. Since I have a $25,000 credit limit, I knew it wouldn't work. So, I previously mailed Chase a check of $50,000. After the check had cleared my bank, I now had a $50,000 credit on my Chase account. When I made the first $13,000 transaction, I received a fraud alert to which I replied that it was me making the purchase. At the end of the day, I bought $39,000 of gold leaving a credit balance of $11,000. The following week or two, I charged an additional $3,000. Total, I have a credit balance of nearly $8,000. Chase owes ME money. I don't owe them. I have a credit balances on 3 of the other 4 accounts. My Presidential Plus card has a balance of $44 but its not due as my last stmt had a zero balance. Supervisor is supposed to call me but I am very very upset. This will kill my credit rating and I will have to change c/c for my phone, etc.

Any suggestions?
You tried to circumvent your monthly credit limit and got caught. My suggestion is learn from your mistake.

He made the right bet only if he could be 100% sure what the leader would do. There was no way he could know.
