    Haymitch won because he was one of the first to the Cornucopia, grabbing a knife and supply bag. Any food in the arena that wasn't in a supply bag was poisoned.

    The second point is wrong. It does matter where you're from.
    • The better your support team (stylist, mentor etc.), the better your chances of actually having decent sponsors.
    • The better you look, the higher the chance of attracting those sponsors.
    • The richer your district, the higher chance your gifts will be valuable.
    • The richer your district, the better you're fed and the healthier you are.
    Yes, Mags was old in the 75th Hunger Games, thus she was an old victor and tribute. But that was only because of the quarter quell and guess what? When she actually won, she was a teenager like everyone else.

    Fun fact: The girl that died from eating poison berries was seen in the film studying which berroes and plants are poisonous, which some fans have taken as a sign of deliberate intent to commit suicide.

    8:44 Throwing knives are typically duller than normal knives, so I wouldn't count on stabbing with a throwing knife. Daggers provide a second and thinner blade, making them a very versatile weapon for both stabbing and cutting strikes. Throwing a dagger is hard, but it is possible. The best option for a knife would be a dagger.
    P.S. Kabars aren't very good for stabbing.
