Will Steven break the curse of 4-time champions? The current drought between 5-time champions (96 games) is the fourth-longest in the history of the show (the longest is 115).

Tournament of Champions projections:
With a projected 103 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 500,000 simulations, our model shows:
An average of 3.8045 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.4081).
An average of 6.087 4+-time champions (standard deviation 1.7419).
An early cutoff took place 3.374% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).
Steven Grade qualified 100.000% of the time.
Eric R. Backes qualified 86.466% of the time.
Anneke Garcia qualified 67.305% of the time.
Lindsey Shultz qualified 40.088% of the time.
Dave Leffler qualified 14.767% of the time.
Jonathan Dinerstein qualified 2.644% of the time.
Alex Schmidt qualified 0.000% of the time.
- Something I’d like to point out, because the show does receive criticism when they only feature white men in categories: Four of the five works in the BESTSELLERS category were written by women, the fifth by an Asian-American.
- Effective in first on buzzer stats: Steven 46.15% (24/52), Anika 31.58% (18/52), Erich 17.54% (10/52)
