This page lists the top Coryat scores of all-time on Jeopardy. This statistic was created by Karl Coryat in his preparation for his 1996 appearance on the show. In the Coryat score, there is no penalty for forced incorrect responses on Daily Doubles, but correct responses on Daily Doubles earn only the natural values of the clues, and any gain or loss from the Final Jeopardy! Round is ignored. It’s a very good way of tracking how much of the board material an at-home player has a grasp of.
With the recent run of James Holzhauer on Jeopardy, there has been an interest in seeing the top single-game Coryat scores of all time on the show. Thus, I have compiled every single known and verified Coryat score in J! Archive over $33,000 ($16,500 in a game before clue values were doubled.)
Scores from before clue value doubling are marked in the table below with a * beside the player’s name.
|1997-06-04||*Wes Ulm ($18,000)||$36,000|
|1992-05-21||*Jerome Vered ($17,900)||$35,800|
|1994-09-07||*Steve Chernicoff ($16,800)||$33,600|
|1997-09-04||*Dan Melia ($16,800)||$33,600|
