  1. Watching the teachers and college tournament reruns is a reminder of the upcoming Tournament of Champions. According to the TOC tracker, over one-third of the TOC participants will be three-game winners. This seems to be a high-than-usual figure. Would this be the biggest number of three-game winners in any TOC? And the number of 5-plus winners (four) seems low, especially when compared to the last few years. Again, is there any way of knowing if this figure is unusual?

      I would venture that there will be at least 19 weeks of gameplay in Season 33 sending qualifiers to a Tournament of Champions, if not more. (That’s almost half a season).

    • I’ve compiled this chart that includes the information you’re seeking at the bottom. To extract it here –

      The 26 ToCs held have included a grand total of 13 three-game winners.
      The most 3-game winners in a ToC was five in 2006 (one of whom, Michael Falk, won it); no other ToC has had more than two.

      As to Andy’s comment below, my only slight disagreement would be that it could be somewhere between 18-19 weeks of regular play. With the September 28 college test pointing toward a February 2017 College Championship, it’s quite possible we might see the ToC and College going back to back. If so, since Teen will already be Wednesday-to-Tuesday, I could easily see Feb. 1 to 14 and Feb. 15 to 28 for tournaments (as was done in Season 28). In any case, plenty of time for three-time champs to be bumped off – even Philip Tiu.
