Finn Corrigan entered Monday night’s game as the returning champion with a two-day total of $39,602 — not bad for the student from Vista, California.

Tonight, he faced off against Karen Johnson, a member acquisition coordinator from Portland, Oregon, and Margaret Chipowsky, an attorney from Lawrenceville, New Jersey.
