Standings for the next Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions

This table piggybacks off the official tracker provided by the Jeopardy! producers.

Current through 2020-04-03, covering 166 regular-play games, as well as players who qualify automatically by virtue of tournament victories (CC = College Championship, TT = Teachers Tournament).

This table also includes the seven four-time champions from the previous ToC cycle with less than $101,002 in winnings (the total of Lindsey Shultz), denoted with a caret (^). They all ranked higher on the standings for the Season 36 ToC than Emma Boettcher (3 wins, $97,002), who was invited; the announcement of that event's field included a statement that "anyone who could have qualified for this ToC will be held over for eligiblity in the next edition."

"Presumptively out of the running" refers to players who presently occupy ToC-qualifying positions, but are expected to be bumped out by the winners of upcoming tournaments (in this instance, the April 2020 College Championship and May 2020 Teachers Tournament).

Two notes regarding the coronavirus pandemic:

  1. Per the show's own announcement, Jeopardy! has suspended production until further notice. That is not the same as production being cancelled. There remains the prospect that taping could resume and complete Season 36 as expected in late July.
  2. According to The Jeopardy! Fan:
    it appears as though Jeopardy! currently has enough episodes taped to air until May 29, 2020. [Andy Saunders has] received confirmation from multiple parties that both the College Championship and Teachers Tournament taped prior to the suspension of production and will air, the College Championship from April 6-17 and the Teachers Tournament from May 4-15.

The table is sortable; clicking on a column's header cell will sort in ascending order; clicking again reverses the order. Each player's name also links to his or her J! Archive player profile.
