The game for the three-day winner Yogesh Raut ended in a wild game on Monday (01/16/2023). It was exciting to see the three-day winner, who hit the first streak for $41.6k, fall badly. On 1/16/2023, Yogesh met Jimmy Davoren, a teacher, and Katie, a museum interpreter. At the Double Jeopardy! Yogesh made just $9,200, followed by Katie in second place with $5,600 and Jimmy with $3,400. Katie proved to be a strong competitor, defeating Yogesh Raut in the next round.
She bet and played, going from $5,000 to $22,600. She tried to bet the amount of $8,000 and ended up winning the lead. Though she thought it risky, her risk paid off well. She played brilliantly to the end and Final Jeopardy! And was the leader at $25,600, while Yogesh was at $23,800 and Jimmy was a long way behind at $11,400. Next, Katie’s small bet of $2,500 kept her in the lead and brought her the final amount of $23,100.
