You've got one false assumption:

Assumption (3): It doesn't matter whether Player X knows where the Daily Double(s) is/are, which in theory Player X wouldn't. Even though most players go sequentially on a given topic, each player can choose any question on the 6×5 board. It's only necessary that Player X finds the Daily Double(s) last while clearing each board.

Your assumptions can thus be condensed:

1) Player X always hits the button first and answers the question correctly.

2) Player X happens to choose the Daily Double(s) last on the board.

3) The Daily Double(s) is/are always on the lowest payout row.

4) Player X always bets max when (s)he can.

Yes, the differences are subtle, but they evidently make a difference since possible cheating is no longer paramount.

Best of luck,

John

John Albertson there is no false assumption. I can't believe you took the time to type that out.  Lol
