2018 Teachers Tournament – Finalists

We started at 15 players, now we’re down to 3. Who do you think will win the 2018 Teachers Tournament?

Thursday, May 17, and Friday, May 18, 2018:


Claire Bishop on Jeopardy!

2/3 on Daily Doubles (Net Earned: $3,000)
1/2 in Final Jeopardy

Steve Mond on Jeopardy!
Steve Mond

Midvale, Utah
42 correct, 7 incorrect
38.60% in first on buzzer (44/114)
2/3 on Daily Doubles (Net Earned: $500)
1/2 in Final Jeopardy
Average Coryat: $13,000
Predictions: Through two games, Larry seems like the clear favorite in the final. However, they play the games for a reason! Final Jeopardy! has played very difficult in this tournament thus far, and the winner may well be the person who survives Thursday’s Final Jeopardy with the best score. Larry can probably stand to take fewer chances, especially because he’s already defeated Claire in Monday’s quarterfinal. Steve and Claire may need to take more chances, which is a route much more fraught with danger. If they were to play this 10 times, I think that Larry would win 6, and Claire and Steve would win 2.
