Jeopardy! continued its Tournament of Champions on Monday night. Here’s how things played out among the returning champions.

Entering Monday night’s Game 6, each of the three players had at least one victory. Two were tied with two wins, meaning tonight’s result would decide the game.

Who won Jeopardy! tonight?

Like last week, tonight’s game featured Sam Buttrey, an associate professor of operations research from Pacific Grove, California, Andrew He, a software developer from San Francisco, California, and Amy Schneider, a writer from Oakland, California. Both He and Schneider entered the game with two wins.

Unsurprisingly, the “Jeopardy!” round saw those two players neck-and-neck. Schneider ended with the lead at $6,400, followed by He with $5,800 and Buttrey with $1,400.

In “Double Jeopardy!,” things only got closer. Schneider still led with $15,600, while He wasn’t far behind with $14,200. Meanwhile, Buttrey remained in third with $8,000.

Both He and Schneider correctly answered the “Final Jeopardy!” clue. However, Amy Schneider’s strong wager gave her enough to claim victory. She won the Tournament of Champions and the $250,000 prize.

Answer: What is “Our American Cousin”?

The answer refers to the play that President Abraham Lincoln watched in the Ford Theater the night he was assassinated. Sam Buttrey was in the ballpark with his guess of “Our Mutual Friend.” Andrew He’s correct response added $2,801 to his total, while Amy Schneider banked another $13,000 with her wager.
