The Jeopardy Tournament of Champions, or T-O-C, is a contest that pits the best of the best against each other. This year’s Tournament of Champions featured 21 of the game’s most accomplished contestants.

The winner of the tournament is awarded a $250,000 grand prize. The winning contestant is also crowned the “Jeopardy!” Tournament of Champions champ. One of the most notable contestants in the competition was Amy Schneider, who beat out fellow Californian Sam Buttrey.

In the competition, Amy Schneider made history as the first transgender woman to compete in a gameshow. She also became the first woman to win the prestigious Tournament of Champions.

For the tournament, Schneider matched wits with software developer Andrew He, who’s from San Francisco. Schneider took He on three games, beating him each time. During the final game, Schneider bet $13,000 and won the contest.

The Tournament of Champions continues to stun the competition. Twenty-one former champions will participate in the two-week competition that lasts from November 8 through December 1. Of those 21 contestants, five of them are super-champs. One of the most impressive players on the show is Matt Amodio. He’s a PhD student in the Yale Department of Computer Science.

Amodio was known for his 38 game winning streak during the regular season. In his final game of the season, he had $33,601 on the line. However, he was defeated by Sam Buttrey.

Amodio finished the year with over $1 million in prize money. He is the third person to ever earn more than $1 million in non-tournament cash winnings. He also ranked second in win streak record books.

The “Jeopardy!” Tournament of Champions is being hosted by former champion Ken Jennings. It will be broadcast on Friday, November 18, 2022. In addition to the usual suspects, the tournament will also feature actor Jonathan Fisher and Yale PhD candidate Matt Amodio.

Buttrey has been watching the show since he was a kid. He is a graduate of Berkeley and Princeton, and has been a professor at California State University, Monterey Bay for more than 26 years. His wife Elinda Hardy also watches the game.

Buttrey won the inaugural “Jeopardy!” Professors Tournament last December. He won a $100,000 prize and a spot in the finals. However, he didn’t know about the Professors Tournament until the episode aired.

He has been compared to comedian Steve Martin. He has a funny sense of humor and has endeared himself to fans.

Andrew He, a software developer from San Francisco, CA, is one of the most sought-after contestants on the “Jeopardy!” Tournament of Champions. Fans admire his impressive trivia knowledge and bold wagers. However, his win last night was controversial. The TOC’s Final Jeopardy was deeply divisive because it was religious in nature.

The Tournament of Champions has provided nonstop entertainment for fans. Contestants have won over $1.6 million in lifetime victories. A $250,000 grand prize is up for grabs in the finals.

Andrew He, a millennial, has won five games in a row. After the first round, he lost money, but gained a lead after the second game. His third Daily Double helped him double his score.

Andrew He and Amy Schneider had a bit of history to them. Amy was the first to beat him in three games. In November 2021, she was the champion, but he would get his revenge in December.

Golden State Warriors

Golden State Warriors snapped an 11-game road losing streak with a 121-108 victory over the Houston Rockets late on Monday. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 59 points to shine for the Warriors.

The Warriors won on the road for the first time since a January 30 victory at Oklahoma City.

Curry finished with 30 points, seven rebounds and five assists while Thompson added 29 points and seven rebounds. They combined to shoot 21-for-44 overall and 10-for-28 from 3-point range to pace the Warriors (37-36). Jonathan Kuminga chipped in 17 off the bench for the Warriors.

Following a back-and-forth third quarter that featured five ties and eight lead changes, the Warriors seized control with an 18-6 rally early in the fourth. Golden State made its first four 3-point attempts in the period and Kuminga added a pair of breakaway dunks that fueled a run to a 108-93 lead.

Kuminga helped stabilise the Warriors late in the third after Houston (18-54) grabbed a 78-77 lead on an Usman Garuba corner trey with 2:26 left in the period. Kuminga immediately followed with a 3-pointer and added a 17-footer as Golden State carried an 84-80 lead into the fourth.

The Warriors were victorious despite committing 20 turnovers that Houston parlayed into 25 points. Golden State countered those miscues with 26 points off 18 Houston turnovers.

All five starters scored in double figures for the Rockets. Rookie Tari Eason posted his seventh double-double with 21 points and 12 boards while fellow rookie Jabari Smith Jr. also recorded a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Jalen Green scored 20 points for Houston, which was without starting centre Alperen Sengun (illness).

The Warriors ran an offensive clinic in the first quarter, scoring 11 points in transition and logging nine assists on their 11 field goals. They used a 15-3 run to secure a nine-point lead, though Houston cut it to 26-21 by the close of the first.

The second quarter was awash with turnovers. Curry tallied 15 points in the period and was instrumental in keeping the Warriors ahead despite their 10 giveaways that Houston converted into 10 points. The Rockets weren’t much better, with their seven turnovers yielding 10 points.

Edmonton Oilers Survive With Three Goals Disallowed and Win in Overtime



Edmonton Oilers Survive

On Monday night, the Avalanche ran the Oilers off Rogers Place with seven goals against Jack Campbell and an Edmonton team so far from their ‘A’ game they almost ran out of letters.

Thankfully for the Oilers, their video coaches came to their rescue with three goals off the board after challenges — two on narrow offsides and one for questionable goaltender interference — which allowed Edmonton to pull off an amazing 5-4 victory in overtime.

“Our group needed more time,” defenceman Darnell Nurse, who scored with 14.3 seconds left in extra period. “But we remained resilient. There are nights you don’t feel it but you still have to find a way to win and that was our plan tonight.”

Without video coaches Jeremy Coupal and Noah Segall, the Oilers would still be reeling and wondering what went wrong against a team with only two wins in 16 games. Their efforts saved the squad from embarrassment and set up two pivotal points for future success.

“Those were some big calls,” Edmonton Oilers centre Nick Bjugstad remarked. “Our video guys and coaching staff were right on it; there was no hesitation. That’s an important part of the game and we rely on those guys to assist us – which they did tonight. It definitely changed the game.”

No doubt about it: Edmonton conceded seven goals for the third time in eight games with just an inch or two to spare. That needs to be addressed, but for now they will take comfort in banking these two points.

“We don’t ignore what led up to those (disallowed goals against),” said head coach Jay Woodcroft. “Even if it’s just an eyelash here or there, those are shots you don’t want in your net.”

“There are things we can improve in our game, but I was proud of our will to win and our ability to find a win when an opposition goaltender was having an excellent night,” McGrath said.

“We didn’t play the game we wanted to in the first two periods, but we knew what the stakes were and our players found a way to earn those two points. Nobody is blind to the fact that there are still issues we need to address,” Leboeuf concluded. “While some aspects need improving, everyone agrees on one thing: there are things that need to be fixed.”

At the other end of the ice, Campbell made his first start since March 4 and spent most of the evening trying to stay on track. He allowed four goals in the opening 40 minutes, was saved by the goal post on another and had three goals against reviewed; however, he finally found some consistency down the stretch and secured victory.

“Jack was just like our team,” Woodcroft said. “He found a way to win on an off-kilter night – that was all that mattered for him and his self confidence. Getting two points for the team is all that mattered to him.”

His night was a 60-minute adventure, but he received no assistance whatsoever from his teammates who were consistently one step behind until the third period when they came alive.

“Last week we had three good opponents in playoff race battles, so this might have been an opportunity to breathe a bit,” defenceman Mattias Ekholm, who scored twice including the game-tying goal with 3:47 left in regulation, said. “I don’t know what you want to call it; we could’ve been better but these games are hard. You need to build yourself up and get going – and we did just that.” “It could’ve been much better but these games are tough; we snuck it out but tough things happen sometimes and move on,”

Edmonton’s problems began early when Campbell let in his second shot of the game at 1:12. Fortunately, it didn’t count due to an offside call, and four minutes later Alexander Barabanov scored for San Jose with a goal.

Nick Bjugstad tied it in the first and Kailer Yamamoto made it 2-1 early in the second. But San Jose scored four times (only three of which counted), while Edmonton responded with Ekholm’s first goal of the night.

Noah Gregor scored on a two-on-one early in the third to make it 5-3 Sharks, but an offside challenge revealed he was inches offside.

“Video coaches deserve more credit than they get,” Ekholm lamented. “They put in long hours and are relentless – but what’s their margin for error? Offside can sometimes be by inches – yet you expect them to always be right. That said, video coaching won us the game tonight.”

LATE HITS — Yamamoto’s 10th goal of the season gives Edmonton an incredible 11 players with double-digit goal scoring this season. Erik Karlsson had two goals for the Sharks in 27:57 of ice time while Evander Kane went minus three for Edmonton.

Baseball has never seen so much money invested in it as now. America’s wealthiest businessmen have all viewed the sport with a kind eye and an even kinder wallet.
