    JEOPARDY! icon Amy Schneider has won Wednesday's Tournament of Champions match and will now advance to the finals. Ken Jennings announced a misruling that left an underdog looking "hurt" which soured an otherwise sweet victory. 5Jeopardy!'s Ken Jennings is hosting the 2022 Tournament of ChampionsCredit: ABC 540-time winner Amy Schneider won the matchCredit: ABC The legendary Amy, 42, from Oakland, California faced Tyler Rhode - a director at a start-up from New York City - and Maureen O’Neil - an executive assistant from Massachusetts. Starting last Monday, host Ken, 48, began looming over the fierce $250K face-off featuring 21 (now 9) game show greats from the past year. The competition has widdled down to the semi-finals, which Amy (as well as Matt Amodio and Mattea Roach) advanced to directly - so this was her first game. Fans were thrilled to see Amy (with 40 prior wins and $1.3M) back with a vengeance tonight, but a score reversal midway put a damper on the momentous moment.

    It’s hard to believe that it hasn’t even been a full year since Amy Schneider began her record-breaking Jeopardy! streak. We’re coming up on the one-year mark—she began her streak on November 17, 2021—but before she celebrates, Schneider faces another big Jeopardy! milestone. She’s about to compete in the Tournament of Champions. Once a year, the best and brightest Jeopardy! players make a pilgrimage to the Alex Trebek Stage, competing in a bracket-style competition to declare the year’s best contestant. Folks who have won five or more games qualify for the Tournament of Champions, making the challenge extra tough. This year, the stakes are especially high, as Schneider faces off against some of the most decorated players of all time—including other recent landmark winners. (But not Ken Jennings, who has the longest streak and will actually be hosting the tourney.) With her entrance into the league of Jeopardy! greats, Schneider becomes the first out trans player in the Tournament of Champions. With divine timing, Schneider actually won her first game last year in the middle of Transgender Awareness Week, and...

    The Sentry Tournament of Champions will get the PGA Tour back in swing from Kapalua to start the 2022 year in golf.  It’s time for the start of the 2022 year in golf. After the winter break last month, we now move to the first PGA Tour event of the new calendar year with the Sentry Tournament of Champions. The crux of the event is in the name. Every golfer (except for Rory McIlroy) who won last year will head to Hawaii to play this event, making for a limited field with many of the best in the world, such as Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa, Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Viktor Hovland (whose golf clubs finally arrived), among many, many others. With a wide-open course that sets up for a birdie-fest, this is always a wildly entertaining tournament. And the fact that we’ve missed golf doesn’t do anything but add to that. So with that in mind, here’s everything you need to know and watch the 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions.Sentry Tournament of Champions course: Where is it...
    Nobody knows what the 2021 edition of the US Open will bring when it reaches its conclusion after 14 days of competition, but what they do already know future champions is that they will earn $ 500,000 less than in previous years. That will be one of the main novelties that tennis players will find in the last Grand Slam tournament of the year that begins this Monday. Although the global prize dedicated to the tournament will be higher, the USTA has established a global compensation of 57.5 million dollars, compared to 57.2 last year. male and female individual champions will receive $ 2.5 million compared to three last year. With a fall of 1.35 million dollars compared to the value of the prize that the champions received in 2019, the year before the coronavirus pandemic, 35 percent lower. Spectators were not allowed at last year’s US Open due to covid-19, a security move that left the USTA with a budget deficit of 180 million in 2020. If the loss of the value of the prizes is the most important...
    The Champions League semifinals are set and an all-English final remains a real possibility. Once again, Premier League clubs dominate the European game. There was a time when English clubs were banned from European competition. The year was 1985, and UEFA imposed the five-year ban after hooliganism in the final — won that year by Juventus against Liverpool — resulted in the death of 39 people in Brussels. Once again, the Champions League semifinals won’t disappoint. After last season’s pandemic-plagued season that resulted in the knockout stage being contested in August, this year’s tournament has not had too many hiccups. While Manchester City, coached by two-time Champions League winner Pep Guardiola during his time as Barcelona manager, remains favored to win it all, Real Madrid can’t be ruled out for its depth and experience at this level of the competition. PSG is also a formidable opponent, while Chelsea are a dark horse who have grown in strength after sacking their manager Frank Lampard earlier in the season. Anything can happen at this stage of the competition, but don’t rule out...

But that also comes with a caveat. Traditionally, the event at Kapalua’s Plantation course is a winners-only event for players who claimed a trophy in the previous calendar year.
