Listen to the previous battle.


David Gardner: And I can just keep this and sweep this right into the final round...

Max Keeler: Let's do it.

David Gardner: Because I think if my math is right, we have Open Table taking on Titanium Metals (NYSE: TIE)

Max: That's correct.

David Gardner: And in the end, I'm going to go with the rule breaker, and the rule breaker here is Open Table. Open Table is a company that often gets overlooked, and people wonder, well how can they possibly compete when Yelp has all the restaurant reviews and I just check it out over there, but as you well know, Max, because you were the one who found this company before I ever did, and I think you made a better investment call on Open Table so far than I have, but I think that Open Table is an outstanding public company and is doing good work and I find myself using the Open Table app on my iPhone to book my next restaurant reservation. I get some frequent flyer points, I keep cashing it in, it's a good, ongoing cycle. I think the restaurants benefit too. Everybody benefits from that ecosystem and so let's make Open Table our Motley Fool Battle Royale Supernova number three winner.

Max: Excellent.
