Correct response: Who is Christopher Robin Milne?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Christopher Robin Milne is the son of A. A. Milne, famous for having written the Winnie-the-Pooh series of books. “The Enchanted Places” and “The Hollow on the Hill” are the first and third parts of his autobiography. At times, Christopher Robin loathed his father for making him famous (through the Christopher Robin character in the books), but writing the autobiography enabled Christopher Robin “to come to terms with what his father had done to him”, according to a 1996 obituary in The Independent.

Tournament of Champions projections:
With a projected 157 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 500,000 simulations, our model shows:
An average of 4.4878 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.7737).
An average of 8.1232 4+-time champions (standard deviation 2.1893).
An early cutoff took place 27.387% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).
Jonathan Dinerstein qualified 22.455% of the time.
Dave Leffler qualified 44.552% of the time.
Alex Schmidt qualified 19.093% of the time.
Jackie Fuchs qualified 4.956% of the time.
Mary Ann Borer qualified 1.028% of the time.
Kyle Becker qualified 0.103% of the time.
- I’m not sure if I 100% agree with the call of the judges on this Final Jeopardy. It’s certainly possible that they chose to accept Jonathan’s answer for the two reasons of: a) him being the only person to answer Milne; and b) the outcome of the game not resting on the call, only money won.
- I was disappointed that Danielle didn’t choose to bet more on her Daily Doubles. While it ended up being a moot point for the overall outcome, it seemed as though she was losing the buzzer battle early on, and doing better with the Daily Doubles may have been able to shift momentum more in her favor.
- Jonathan’s podcast is titled Settling the Score.
