Tournament of Champions projections:
With a projected 64 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 500,000 simulations, our model shows:
An average of 1.797 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.1242).
An average of 3.2595 4+-time champions (standard deviation 1.3919).

An early cutoff took place 0.125% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).

Martin Kane qualified 14.510% of the time.
Eric R. Backes qualified 91.698% of the time.
Anneke Garcia qualified 71.894% of the time.
Lindsey Shultz qualified 37.596% of the time.
Dave Leffler qualified 9.471% of the time.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • Brendan’s best choice of wager was likely $11,001; Mary’s best choice of wager was no more than $7,599.

  1. The last DD cost Brendan the game. And after James we are back to the 1,2,3 time champions. Dave and Lindsey will be happy, nevertheless sitting on needles and pins…🙄

      Yup, And unfortunately that DD3 bet was on the hardest question level

      DD1 – $600 – 3rd Level
      DD2 – $800 – 2nd Level
      DD3 – $2,000 – 5th Level

    • Matt Rose | June 10, 2019 at 7:32 pm |

      Also if his DD3 bet was $1,000 instead of $2,000. If the rest of the game stayed the same, He would have had the lead n FJ.

      PS. As James was a master bettor, I wonder what James would have bet on that DD3.

  2. I still very much enjoy Jeopardy! but it certainly is not the same without James.

    During the Final Jeapordy question,
    ABC cut in with a report on a helicopter crash in NYC. What was the question and answer, and who won?

  4. Jocelyn Foreacre | June 10, 2019 at 4:53 pm |

    Where are the stats?

  5. How many TS did we have today? Won’t see the game for another 51/2 hours…

  6. Mary A Rose | June 10, 2019 at 6:22 pm |

    Jeopardy preempted tonight (and possibly Thursday night) in the L.A. area due to boring ball. It can be seen in the wee hours, however, so unless you are an insomniac, check your TV listings and record.

    “Boring” NBA Finals (especially tonight’s game) = exciting and dramatic

    Jeopardy! without James = boring
